Fantastic news from our pals at MSD Performance as they have earned the vaunted ISO 9001:2008 Certification. This is important stuff for a manufacturing company because it means that their internal standards meet those of the International Organization for Standardization and demonstrate a high level of drive for product quality. This is not an easy certification to get and there are a small group of companies in the automotive aftermarket that have gotten it. The process took a year to complete, but in the end, MSD demonstrated why their brand is so respected in the high performance marketplace. They make great stuff! This is a very proud moment for the management and workforce of MSD Performance and we want to congratulate them on this accomplishment. High manufacturing standards mean better parts for us to use on our cars and trucks. Win/Win!
Here’s the news from MSD:
El Paso, Texas – MSD Performance, the most recognized name for fuel and ignition systems in the automotive performance aftermarket has been awarded full ISO 9001:2008 certification from NSF International Strategic Registrations (NSF-ISR). After a comprehensive audit of MSD’s quality management system, NSF-ISR concluded that the design and manufacture of electrical components at MSD has met internationally accepted standards established by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). “We prepared for over a year, reviewing all of the organization’s processes from design and manufacturing, purchasing, customer service and everything in between,” said Fernando Bernal, Quality Control Engineer at MSD. “Our due diligence and support from upper management allowed us to improve our quality controls and gain ISO certification in a relatively short time span.”
To achieve ISO 9001:2008 certification, the effectiveness of an organization’s quality management system and processes must be continually monitored, measured and improved internally to ensure expected outcomes. Russell Stephens, President of MSD, said “MSD products are synonymous with quality. Our design and manufacturing processes help us manufacture with higher consistency and our quality management system ensures that the quality and performance our customers look for in MSD will be there every time they buy our products. With our ISO certification, our customers can be confident that we remain steadfast in providing quality products into the future.”
NSF-ISR provides companies in the automotive, aerospace, medical, and manufacturing industry with quality management systems training, auditing and certification to meet internationally accepted ISO standards for quality assurance.
