Sanmina certified for automotive manufacturing in Chennai, India
Sanmina has achieved the IATF 16949:2016 certification for its manufacturing facility in Chennai, India.
The new certification along with the Chennai facility's Domestic Tariff Area status in a Hi-Tech Special Economic Zone, allows the company to manufacture and deliver automotive products for both domestic and export markets, without additional customs duty. India is the fourth-largest automotive market and is growing in recognition worldwide as a key automotive component provider that meets stringent global standards for automotive manufacturing. The IATF 16949:2016 certification ensures that automotive manufacturers have a Quality Management System in place that provides for continuous improvement, emphasising defect prevention and reduction of waste in the supply chain. "Achieving the IATF 16949:2016 certification reflects our commitment to customer satisfaction and that we are thriving to always meet or exceed their expectations for consistent, high-quality automotive products and services," says Roger Bailey, VP of the automotive business segment at Sanmina. "The certification, combined with Domestic Tariff Area status, enables us to contribute to India's growth as part of the government's 'Make in India' initiative."
