Automotive qualified processes
quality management system is ISO 9001 qualified


Our quality management system is ISO 9001:2015 certified and is supplemented by automotive manuals such as APQP, PPAP, AMDEC, SPC, MSA, etc., and by integrating applied techniques such as 8D, 5W, ISHIKAWA, Poka Yoke, etc.

Our lab is equipped to make the following measurements:

  • Thickness
  • Adhesion
  • Phosphorus content
  • Binoculars (with integrated cameras)
  • Hardness
  • Porosity
  • Solderability, etc.


We are present in many traditional applications such as engine valves, A/C, windscreen wipers, transmissions, towbar systems, differentials, ABS, ESP and damping systems, high pressure fuel pumps, etc.

Our teams are also involved in research and development surrounding new trends in electrification (e.g. IGBT cooling systems and heatsinks) or CNG and hydrogen pressure regulators, etc.
