NHK Spring Precision of America is a manufacturer of precision springs for automotive customers like GM, BMW, Honda and Nissan.
The initial scope of work for NHK was to get this facility ISO/TS certified. Beginning in 2011, 3 consultants worked on this project and assisted with documentation, processes and procedures, along with performing training and audits. We performed an IATF 16949 gap assessment in April 2017 to prepare them for transition to the new standard. They continue to use simpleQuE for IATF 16949 internal audits and CQI-9 audits.
“Your efforts played a vital role in our success.”
-Steve Strickland, Corporate Director of Quality
“Kudos to Karen and Greg for a value added audit this week at our Dayton Facility. They thoroughly audited to 4 standards and found many areas that need to be addressed prior to our 3rd party audits. They displayed both professionalism and industry/standards expertise while utilizing well developed audit and people skills to drive down to objective evidence.”
-Chad Bryan, Value Stream Manager
Allied Motion (formerly Globe Motors) designs and manufactures small motors for a wide array of industries.
Since 2005, the scope of work for Globe Motors has been to perform their internal audits to ISO 9001, IATF 14949, AS9100, and ISO 14001. We provided full consulting assistance to get them certified to each of these standards, along with training in these standards. In addition to upgrading four sites to the new ISO, IATF, and AS standards, we have helped simplify documentation, processes, and procedures and performed training and audits. We conducted semi-annual internal audits for up to four standards for the following 14 years.
