Our manufacturing processes have been duly certified by the international Quality Management System, TS-16949. For continuous improvement of our operations, we have adopted the ‘Cluster Approach’ under ACT-CII wherein six to eight companies work together under the leadership of ACMA counsellors on a common roadmap to assure customer satisfaction and value to our shareholders. The primary objective of this cluster approach is to work towards ‘lean manufacturing’.
From piston rod grinding to the final painting, and from parts manufacturing to product assembly, our processes are under constant scrutiny to achieve best product quality, performance and economic cost base for our customers. Key critical processes are kept in-house to ensure critical performance and safety of the product. Additionally, we use Poka Yokes to prevent defects and Kaizens for continuous improvement of quality.
