Polar Manufacturing is certified to ISO 9001:2015 and IATF 16949:2016 quality standards and operates to the strict requirements of both internationally recognised certifications. This allows us to act as a Tier 1 supplier for the automotive industry as well as apply these working practices across a variety of other industry sectors.
ISO 9001 is the international criteria for a quality management system. This criteria is based on ISO’s quality management principles which include customer focus, leadership, continual improvement and evidence-based decision making.
IATF 16949 is the International Standard for Automotive Quality Management Systems. It incorporates the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 with the addition of automotive specific requirements. The key areas of focus include product safety, risk management and reducing waste.
We are currently exploring additional opportunities to expand upon our existing certifications which would further benefit our company and customers.
As a company, we recognise that through development and maintenance of robust quality systems we are able to continuously improve our business whilst striving to ensure that all of our products and services consistently meet or exceed customer requirements.
