ISO 9001, ISO/TS 16949 and ISO 14001.
Not only our products, but also the quality of our products and processes is what makes us successful and competitive. Thus, quality is one of the most important factors in everything we do, and it gives us the opportunity of being better and different. And we use this opportunity.
Right from the very beginning, we at Hengst have had a family-like business culture on all hierarchic levels. Contrary to former times, an organization of our size today needs standards and structures which provide regulations in order to ensure a high degree of quality in every division and at all locations.
For this reason, we have based our certified quality management system on the requirements of ISO 9001 and ISO/TS 16949. Moreover, our environmental management system has also been certified to be in keeping with ISO 14001.
For us, the requirements of these certifications are an important framework which we have further expanded and developed time and time again. The high quality standards we impose on ourselves also apply to our suppliers and throughout our entire value chain.
The compulsory program comes first. Then the optional.
As a supplier of automobile manufacturers and of other industries, we consider the certified quality management system to be compulsory. It is not good enough by itself, however. For this reason, our group of companies has been set up in such a manner that we accept responsibility for quality from the development of a product and its manufacture all the way to delivery. This also includes efficient suppliers who work according to this quality claim.
We have been very successful with this concept of quality. This fact is reflected in the prizes and awards we have received.
