Haldex earns quality certification for Monterrey, Mexico, plant

Kansas City, Mo.-based Haldex Brake Products said its Monterrey, Mexico, facility had received ISO/TS 16949:2002 certification as a manufacturer of air brake actuators and for its product design, purchasing, sales and customer service.

Haldex noted that the ISO certification process ensures on-going compliance to standards of performance because, once certified, companies are externally audited every year for continuous execution of the standards. Conformance to ISO/TS 16949:2002 quality assurance standards required the implementation of procedural changes, training, increased documentation, and adjustments to operating systems on every level of the manufacturing process, it said.
