Whether it’s developing new materials, improving our production processes or expanding into new markets, here at Interflex, innovation is at the heart of everything we do.

Recently, a key part of our strategy of staying at the forefront of designing, developing and manufacturing NVH solutions for the automotive industry and beyond, has been working towards certification with British Standards Institution (BSI) IATF 16949:2016.

Innovating for the future

Founded over 100 years ago, BSI is the market leader in providing standards to over 80, 000 businesses in 193 countries. This International Organization for Standardization (ISO) technical specification sets out the quality system requirements for the design, development, production, installation and servicing of products related to the automotive industry.

Achieving the certification involved rigorous procedures including a stringent third-party auditing process to ensure we measured up to the high standards demanded from any company who aspires to gain this prestigious accreditation.

“We are delighted to achieve this certification, which proves our commitment to demonstrating high levels of compliance and improving our processes to prevent defects and reduce unnecessary waste as we strive to create an ever more efficient and sustainable production line and supply chain,” says Interflex Managing Director Jim Griffin.

Ready to do business worldwide

This certification was developed by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) and consolidates and supersedes existing US, German, French and Italian automotive quality system standards to create a truly global industry standard that enables automotive supply companies to expand their client bases internationally.

“One of the great benefits of IATF 16949:2016 is that it opens additional doors to us internationally,” adds Jim. “As designers and manufacturers of sustainable and lightweight materials, we have a lot to offer to manufacturers around the world. This certification means our valued clients in the UK and abroad can have faith in our ability to supply them efficiently with the high-quality products they depend on us for.”

Continuing our commitment to the highest possible standards

The IATF 16949:2016 certification has been awarded in addition to Interflex’s existing BSI standards ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management) and ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Management). These certifications also demonstrate our history of a strong commitment to a streamlined and eco-conscious production process.
