Fuchs Lubricants achieves top certification

Fourth Quarter 2021 News & events

Fuchs Lubricants South Africa has achieved IATF 16949:2016 certification, which aims at providing improved quality products to automotive customers worldwide. IATF 16949, specified by The International Automotive Task Force (IATF), defines the QMS standards specifically for the automotive industry. IATF 16949:2016 emphasises the development of a process-oriented quality management system to facilitate continual improvement, defect prevention and waste reduction in the supply chain.

Dr Siphilisiwe Ndlovu, technical director at Fuchs Lubricants South Africa, said that the certification covers product design, production quality and risk and all processes that impact delivery of a product to the customer. He added that the focus is on minimising risk and errors from a quality system perspective and identifying opportunities to improve process efficiencies. “IATF creates awareness of what can go wrong in the overall manufacturing process, implementing error-proofing measures and focuses on meeting customer requirements and delivering what the customer wants,” he explained. “It places greater emphasis on top level management for QMS ownership, with the focus on customer satisfaction. This approval demonstrates our ability to consistently provide products that meet customer needs and meet statutory, regulatory and product safety requirements. The aim is therefore to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of our processes.”
