Automotive

Automotive components must be capable of withstanding the increasingly higher strength and operating temperature requirements of modern vehicles with higher power and reduced emissions, and all within a stringent quality control environment.

Our accreditations to the following standards have been key to achieving this:

  • BE EN ISO 9001 (Quality Management)
