Michelin's Tamil Nadu plant receives ISO/TS 16949 certification

Michelin India has been awarded the quality management certification ISO 9001 and ISO/TS 16949:2009 by UTAC (Technical Union for the Automobile, Motorcycle and Cycle Industries) for its manufacturing plant in Thervoy Kandigai near Chennai, Tamil Nadu. Michelin entered into an investment agreement with the Tamil Nadu government in 2009 to build this 290-acre manufacturing facility that focuses on manufacturing truck/bus radial tyres and has a capacity of around 300,000 radial tyres.

Earlier in 2013, the company’s ambassador said, “In terms of general investments, according to figures calculated last year, French companies invested in India about USD 18bn which covers a wide range of activities pursued by 350 companies plus subsidiaries. It is a very sizeable investment.”

Atul Renavikar, Director of Michelin India manufacturing plant said, “Our commitment to quality, innovation and technical performance is relentless and continuous. The ISO 9001 and ISO/TS 16949 certification applies to companies that contribute added value and quality to manufactured products. This certificate demonstrates strict adherence to highest quality standards that Michelin is synonymous with across the world.”

The ISO TS 16949:2009 certification awarded to Michelin India recognises the development of quality management system that sets an example of continual improvement, emphasizing defect prevention and reducing variation and waste in supply chain. ISO TS 16949:2009 also ensures that a company meets the needs of customers and its stakeholders while also meeting the statutory and regulatory requirements of the product. This enables the company to improve business with automobile OEM customers.

UTAC is a certification authority that is recognised worldwide and is one of the most reputable certification organisations. It contributes to development of industrial standards (IEC, ISO). UTAC is designated as Organisme Technique Central (OTC- Central technical body) and is given the responsibility for centralisation and monitoring inspections by the French government.
