ROWE has been certified under DIN EN ISO 9001 since 2001, currently in the latest version DIN EN ISO 9001:2015.
Certification under automotive standards is already something of a tradition at ROWE, which has been certified in this area since February 2009, initially under the old ISO/TS 16949 standard, and under the new version IATF 16949:2016 since March 2018.
The decisive aspect for this certification is the quality management that is anchored in the company’s processes and organizes the workflows and interfaces with customers and suppliers, as well as the other partners. Strategic control tools introduced within the workflows ensure a greater effectiveness and quality of the processes performed throughout the company. Our focus in this lies on preventative quality management for error avoidance. Regular customer surveys meanwhile also contribute to enabling the localization and elimination of any weak points to emerge, also beyond the daily customer contact.
An extremely important certification is the one under IATF 16949:2016.
This globally recognized standard summarizes the requirements of international car manufacturers. The IATF 16949:2016 certification helps the company become even more competitive, bolsters employee motivation, and protects jobs.
Given our own mission to act sustainably and exert an influence on our environmental record, we are particularly proud of the certification of our environmental management system under ISO 50001 since February 2018. Although basically voluntary, this certification enables the documentation of energy flows within a company and an assessment of its energy efficiency, in order to apply technical measures and changes for improving it.
Over and beyond this, we have also had the environmental management system certified under ISO 14001 since 2010. This standard is focused on a continuous improvement process as a means for achieving the defined targets with respect to our own environmental performance. In the process, the company is meant to create an own environmental policy with targets and build up a corresponding management system.
