In 1993, the quality system, which we nurtured and developed from the very beginning of our business, was harmonized with the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard. The ISO 9001 certificate was acquired by Kovinoplastika Lož in January 1994. Kovinoplastika Lož is the holder of the ISO TS 16949 certificate since 2009, when it completed a major project of upgrading the existing ISO 9001 quality system from 1993. In 2018, we switched to the requirements of the new standards ISO 9001: 2015, ISO 14001: 2015 and IATF 16949: 2016, which has become a new opportunity to improve and rationalize existing management systems in the company.
For the recipient of this certificate, this is an important step in improving the ability to acquire new business deals in the field of components, primarily for the automotive industry, as well as for other branches of the industry, since the quality of products and services becomes a "self-evident" feature of every purchase or procurement. The receipt of the certificate is not a final act, but above all a commitment to hard work in the field of continuous improvement to increase the added value and reliability of our work to customers, both internal and external.
It is also a confirmation that our employees know and can carry out steps that are in line with international standards of management and the company strategy.
