ROWE has been certified under the ISO/TS 16949 standard since February 2009, in addition to the DIN EN ISO 9001-certification achieved in February 2001.
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.
One extremely important certification is that under ISO/TS 16949. This globally recognized technical specification summarizes the requirements of the international car manufacturers. The ISO/TS 16949-certification helps the company to further consolidate its competitiveness, while boosting employee motivation and securing 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.
