Steeda Renews ISO Certification
Steeda Autosports, who in 2007 achieved the ISO 9001:2000 Certification by developing a Quality Management System (QMS) that is fully registered with the strict International ISO Standard of Quality, has been officially re-certified as being in full compliance with the most prestigious ISO 9001:2008 standards and requirements. This Quality Management System documents the company’s best business practices so as to better satisfy the requirements and expectations of its customers and improve the overall management of the company.
Steeda President and founder Dario Orlando “I am especially proud of the entire Steeda Team with their commitment to our customers by achieving this higher and enhance quality standard. There is no other exclusive Ford aftermarket supplier that has achieved this level of quality certification – not even Shelby, Roush Performance Parts, or Saleen has achieved ISO Certification – let alone this most prestigious level we have obtained.”
With ISO 9001:2008 certification, detailed quality planning is required before any new products or processes are implemented. Once implemented, this same quality planning ensures the highest level of quality is maintained and continually improved upon. While ongoing quality assessments were always part of the routine at Steeda Autosports, the qualitative and quantitative routines that are part of the ISO certification form a guarantee to our customers that whenever they purchase a Steeda part, accessory or serialized vehicle, they are guaranteed of the highest level of quality available.
Glen Vitale, Steeda Autosport’s Vice President of Operations and ISO Main Quality Representative added: “At Steeda, quality is a “culture” and ISO 9001:2008 quality is an all important accreditation for us to achieve. Our entire Engineering, Manufacturing, Warehousing, and Distribution Teams continuously work above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that our quality management system is second to none – all with a customer based focus!”
The ISO 9001:2008 certification process is a comprehensive quality management system within wherein outside auditors do extensive independent audits to ensure continued compliance for manufacturing ensuring that a quality system is maintained and continually improved upon. As a result, through the use of the quality policy, quality objectives, audit results, analysis of data, corrective and preventative action and management review, Steeda can guarantee only the very best quality goes into every Ford performance product we produce.
