Quality Policy

Main Objectives
As a world class manufacturer of metal structures and sub-assemblies for the automotive industry we constantly strive for strengthening our market position.

Our aim is to offer our customers a consistently extended product range and services as well as new manufacturing technologies.

We want to be competitive in terms of quality and manufacturing costs to the benefit of our existing and future customers.

How to achieve these objectives
We commit ourselves to fulfil the requirements of the IATF 16949:2016 standards and customer-specific requirements. We take into account the requirements of all interested parties. 

Our process management methods and manufacturing processes are audited and evaluated at regular intervals and are continuously improved by the resulting measures based on our KAPS (KIRCHHOFF Automotive Production System) rules.

Due to the increasing requirements of the market the requirements to our employees also increase. Therefore, necessary skills or qualifications are regularly assessed and are achieved by appropriate trainings and supporting measures.

Our goal is to build and keep up our employees’ awareness for the KIRCHHOFF Automotive “Vision and Values”. We assure a regular evaluation of the company targets’ achievement. 

Assessment of the Quality Management System with regards to effectiveness and efficiency is realized by the regular evaluation of:

  • Corporate Profitability
  • Quality and Delivery Performance  
  • Quality Costs
  • Customer Satisfaction
  • Employees Satisfaction
