WEXCO Industries, one of the nation’s leading windshield wiper blade suppliers and windshield wiper system manufacturers for the RV industry, announced its recertification to the ISO 9001:2008 standard.
The 2008 standard is now the requirement for any new certification after Nov. 14, 2010. WEXCO’s certification is a prerequisite to its ongoing tier 1 supplier relationship with many heavy-duty vehicle manufacturers, according to a news release from the Pine Brook, N.J.-based manufacturer.
WEXCO’s third party auditor is STR-Registrar LLC, which is an ANAB accredited firm. ANAB assesses and accredits certification bodies that demonstrate competence to audit, and certify organizations conforming to management systems standards.
As its OE business has increased, WEXCO has placed an ever-increasing emphasis on continuous improvements in process control, lean methodologies and development of best practices. Operating within the framework of an ISO-based quality system, the company makes these strides while remaining compliant with customer requirements, and documented internal procedures.
WEXCO is presently qualifying to the ISO TS-16949 standard, targeting cerification by June 2011. TS-16949 encompasses the entire ISO 9000 standard, and adds additional focus on the design/development, production, and where relevant, installation and servicing of automotive-related products.
