3 ISO certificates
VDL Parree has three different ISO certifications. By focusing on quality we can continue to achieve the planned growth in a market that is continuously changing.
The certificates we hold are:
- IATF 16949:2016 (formerly ISO/TS 16949)
- ISO 9001:2015
- ISO 14001:2015
IATF 16949:2015 - Automotive
The IATF 16949:2015 certificate is the successor to the ISO/TS 16949. This certificate enables VDL Parree to produce for companies in the automotive industry. Within the automotive sector, the products and internal processes are subject to strict requirements. The IATF 16949 certificate shows that VDL Parree meets the required standards. Thanks in part to this certificate, VDL Parree achieves a significant part of the turnover from activities for automotive customers. Within this sector we produce for a number of familiar brands you see on the road every day.
As a result of delivering to the automotive sector, VDL Parree has developed tremendous expertise over the years. In 1995, we gained certification for the QS 9000 standard. This American standard was the precursor to the ISO/TS 16949. By choosing VDL Parree as a supplier you are choosing a supplier with over 23 years of experience in manufacturing parts for the automotive sector.
The ISO 9001:2015 is the most widely known international standard for quality systems. VDL Parree has already held this for many years. With this certificate we demonstrate that we are a reliable supplier of diverse products in a wide range of markets. The ISO 9001:2015 certificate demonstrates that we say what we do, do what we say and can prove it if necessary. Among other things, this standard enables us to avoid unnecessary bureaucracy. With this approach VDL Parree seeks to establish processes based on the Lean method and continuously strive for perfection.
The reason we have this certificate in addition to the IATF 16949 is to best meet the requirements of customers from sectors other than the automotive industry. With the combination of both certificates, we have the freedom to set up processes in full accordance with the customer's requirements, with the associated documentation. This enables us to remain competitive for every customer.
ISO 14001:2015 – Environmental management
In 2017 VDL Parree achieved ISO 14001:2015 certification. By attaining this certificate, VDL Parree demonstrates that it has a comprehensive environmental management system. Corporate social responsibility is very important to us. Doing all we can to ensure a good, healthy environment is part of this. As a producer and supplier of plastic injection moulding parts we can do our part for the environment by separating and recycling plastics properly. We also help protect the environment by heating our logistics department entirely with the waste heat from the cooling water used for our injection moulding machines and by using energy wisely.
By using energy and raw materials responsibly, we are doing all we can to leave a healthy, green world to future generations.
