Kilian Manufacturing Corporation Earns International Automotive Quality Recognition - ISO/TS16949

(Pittsburgh PA) SRI Quality System Registrar is pleased to announce that it has recently awarded an ISO/TS 16949 Quality Management System certificate and an ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management System certificate to Kilian Manufacturing Corporation located in Syracuse, New York, for design and manufacture of ball and roller bearings and related assemblies.

"SRI is pleased to acknowledge that Kilian Manufacturing Corporation has demonstrated effective implementation of a quality management system that satisfies the tough new auto standard: ISO/TS 16949," states Peter B. Lake, CEO of SRI, and longtime auto industry participant in issuing sanctioned interpretations for auto system requirements. "Their certification shows their automotive customers worldwide that Kilian Manufacturing Corporation is committed to being recognized as a long term supplier of quality goods and services."

ISO/TS 16949:2002 is an international Quality Management System automotive "sector-specific" technical specification based on ISO 9001:2000, QS-9000 and several other international automotive requirements. ISO/TS 16949:2002 was developed by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) and the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA), in conjunction with the international standards community. This technical specification, when coupled with the applicable IATF customer-specific requirements, and IATF-specific auditing and qualification procedures, provides the basis for an IATF-recognized registrar such as SRI to certify Kilian Manufacturing Corporation.

SRI Quality System Registrar is an internationally accredited registrar for quality management systems standards, such as ISO 9001, AS9100, ISO/TS 16949, and environmental management systems standards such as ISO 14001. SRI also provides public training for auditing, implementing, and maintaining these standards.
