Steeda is ISO 9001-2000 Certified

Steeda Autosports has achieved the prestigious ISO 9001-2000 Certification by developing a Quality Management System (QMS) that is fully registered with the strict International ISO Standard of Quality.  This Quality Management System documents the company’s best business practices so as to better satisfy the requirements and expectations of its customers and improve the overall management of the company.

Steeda President and founder Dario Orlando states “I am exceptionally proud of the entire team at Steeda, everyone gave their 100% on this quality initiative with one primary focus – our customers.  Achieving certification with this standard was done over a record setting eight months time and includes our Design, Engineering, Manufacturing, Warehousing, and Order Fulfillment Operations.  In the aftermarket world of Ford Performance, Steeda Autosports is the only exclusive Ford performance manufacturer that has achieved this certification – a very elite position to be in.”

Glen Vitale, Steeda Autosport’s Vice President of Operations and ISO Main Quality Representative added: “The entire Steeda Autosports Team quickly realized the benefits that achieving ISO 9001-2000 certification would provide and made their own individual commitment for success – something that happens frequently around here at Steeda.  Our quality system is maintained and continually improved through the use of the quality policy, quality objectives, audit results, analysis of data, corrective and preventative action and management review so as to ensure only the very best quality for our Ford performance customers.”

With ISO 9001-2000 certification, detailed quality planning is required before any new products or processes are implemented.  Once implemented, this same quality planning ensures the highest level of quality is maintained and continually improved upon.  While ongoing quality assessments were always part of the routine at Steeda Autosports, the qualitative and quantitative routines that are part of the ISO certification are your guarantee that whenever you purchase a Steeda part, accessory or serialized vehicle, you are guaranteed of the highest level of quality available.
