Karl Küfner GmbH & Co. KG relies on a full-service solution "Made in Germany". The owner-managed family business specializes in customized filters and high-quality weaving reeds used in the automotive and medical technology sectors. The supplier is therefore active in two industries within which supply chains are becoming increasingly complex and there is an increased need for strict quality controls and effective standardization. In this competitive environment, flexibility, efficiency and quality of participants are immensely important. These standards are ensured through certification audits. Karl Küfner GmbH & Co. KG had the claim to continue to meet the high requirements of the quality standards ISO 9001 and IATF 16949. In addition, the special requirements for a quality management system for medical products according to ISO 13485 were on the agenda. The company therefore commissioned T-Systems MMS to maintain and further develop its integrated quality management system, with a focus on efficiency, sustainability and future viability
„We had documents, templates and processes for all requirements. What was missing, however, was a clear structure in the management system that would make it easier to find and access documents. In T-Systems MMS, we found a partner who supported us strategically and set up the quality management system cleanly and comprehensibly so that other topics such as TISAX® or 27001 could also be implemented.“
Ensuring the re-certification according to ISO 9001 and IATF 16949, as well as the further development and maintenance of an integrated management system that meets the standard requirements. In addition, ensuring the re-certification of medical technology products according to ISO 13485.
