Brings Higher Quality and Safety Standards to RV Industry
|HiSpec Wheel & Tire Completes ISO 9001 Certification Process
by HiSpec Wheel & Tire, Inc.
MISHAWAKA, Ind.-- HiSpec Wheel & Tire, Inc., engineers of The Safety Wheel and a major supplier of aluminum wheels to the RV, medium truck and niche automotive industries, is pleased to announce the certification of the company's quality system based on the ISO 9001 standards.
International standards such as those required by ISO 9001 are critical to original equipment manufacturers and play an integral role in the quality of products they produce. ISO standards are also a key component in providing greater protection for consumers and the environment. Obtaining this ISO 9001 certification is an example of HiSpec's commitment towards providing the highest quality product on the market.
"This is a major step in our continuous effort as the industry leader in providing the safest and most reliable RV and specialty trailer wheels to our customers," said Jim Guibert, director of sales and marketing for HiSpec Wheel & Tire. "We have always been a leader and innovator in our industry and our ISO accreditation is yet another way that HiSpec differentiates itself from the competition in the specialty trailer and heavy-duty wheel manufacturing industry. HiSpec continually raises the bar by successfully achieving this ISO certification," continued Guibert.
"The fact that we were able to achieve it in nine months is an indication of the organization that has always been part of the HiSpec way," said Ron Williams, general manager at HiSpec. "Moving forward we are committed to meeting our customer's needs and providing innovative solutions and products at a competitive price. This is just another step to improve the quality and safety standards in the RV and Specialty Trailer industries."
ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the world's largest developer and publisher of International Standards. ISO 9001 certification specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products that meet customer and applicable regulatory requirements and aims to enhance customer satisfaction through effective application of the system including processes for continual improvement of the system. ISO 9001 certified organizations have been proven worthy of this certification by implementing quality management system requirements in all areas of their business including facilities, personnel, training, services and equipment.
