Quality and environmental guidelines
ElringKlinger develops, manufactures and markets gaskets and gasket sets, shielding systems, cam covers and oil pan modules for the automobile industry along with precision parts and semi-finished products made of high-performance plastics, all of which are subject to stringent quality and environmental standards.
To produce such high-quality products, it is necessary to use equally high-grade raw materials and semi-finished goods; after all, the quality of supplied products has a critical bearing on the end product. These high standards apply to services in equal measure.
Moreover, ElringKlinger expects its suppliers around the world to introduce and consistently apply the same principles and management methods as ElringKlinger itself, as demanded by the automobile industry.
Since June 2000, our management system has been certified according to ISO/TS 16949, and to environmental standard DIN EN ISO 14001 since 1997. These guidelines are therefore structured in line with ISO TS 16949:2002. ElringKlinger make a difference between automotive and non-automotive suppliers.
An automotive supplier supplies ElringKlinger with components, assemblies or raw materials, which are processed into a product for the automotive industry.
