Muller South Wales achieve (IATF) 16949 standard

05 April 2018

A leading sub-contact machining specialist has become one of the first manufacturers in the UK to secure a prestigious new automotive quality accreditation.

Muller Holdings, which employs 12 people at its factory in Llandovery, has achieved the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) 16949 standard, a standard that is now being used by the main car manufacturers and tier 1s when awarding new contracts.

This replaces the TS approval and is vital to the company's desire to build on over £7m of orders it currently holds supplying CNC machined and high volume parts for use in heavy duty braking systems, engines, electronics and door brackets.

The process took just twelve months, from initial planning to mobilising the quality team and ensuring that everyone knew what was expected of them to ensure the 21 changes in specification were successfully met.
