Thun Prolongs TÜV-Nord Certification
ENNEPETAL, Germany – Alfred Thun GmbH once again managed to receive the certification in the TÜV-Nord voluntary production control with respect to the manufacturing of drive and bearing components for bicycles.
“The combination of a DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 certificate and the TÜV-Nord production control is rather exceptional in the bicycle sector,” said CEO Alfred Thun. “But first class quality of the production process guarantees perfect products and that is what we are aiming for.” The DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 certification is required for this TÜV-Nord certificate.
“The high quality level of our production process is continuously evaluated by Process Capability Index (Cpk) analyses. These analyses are audited by TÜV-Nord. Quality is not a fact, but the result of ongoing efforts to improve all processes within the company.”
“Sustainability is what everybody is always talking about while the quality of the process is the key to sustainability”, said Alfred Thun.
The family owned company Alfred Thun specializes in inner bearings for city, trekking, children’s and mountain bikes. With 50 employees at its location in Ennepetal, Thun has a production capacity of up to 1 million inner bearings per month.
