Glavista recognized and embraced the benefits of the IATF 16949 standard, and certification for its production facility on Llodio, Spain, was granted in 2018 . This ensures that our manufacturing and support processes are certified in the same way as OE producers, leading to higher quality (compared to non-certified producers). Our certificate is issued by an independent certification body (BSI: British Standards Institution) and must be renewed every three years. Every year, there is a review during which BSI assesses whether the requirements of our quality management system are applied, and our performance is continuously improved - consistent with our own vision as a company.
In practice, this means, 100 per cent of our windscreens undergoes cosmetic inspection processes. We also keep a close eye on raw material, as glass thickness and transmission, validation processes for every new bracket, pvb moisture control etc., as well as the correct calibration of all measuring equipment. We analyse all complaints relating to material, employ a special team to help customers solve quality problems and regularly invest in expanding our ultra-modern machinery.
