ANOKA, MN — Lund International Inc. and its Nifty products division, have received the ISO/TS 16949:2002 certification. This new global, Automotive Industry Quality Standard significantly raises the bar for suppliers in the industry. It is required for direct suppliers by the end of 2006. Nifty, as well as Lund International’s Ventshade and Autotron divisions, are among the few who have attained it prior to the 2006 deadline.
The difficult to achieve ISO/TS16949 certification is granted by the International Automotive Oversight Bureau (IAOB) only to suppliers for auto makers (either domestic or import). ISO9001:2000 and ISO/TS16949 certificates are granted when a company demonstrates to a registration firm that they meet documented ISO or TS requirements as well as the associated customer-specific requirements.
