Pune: The Volkswagen India Plant in Pune has received the ISO 9001:2008 certification for quality management systems. The process for the certification started in September 2008, even before the inauguration of the plant in March 2009. The Quality policy for Volkswagen India was formed in July 2009.

The achievement of the ISO 9001:2008 certification in February 2010 is one of the shortest time-periods for achievement of such a certification by a Greenfield plant. The construction of the plant commenced in 2007 and has been built in a record time of 17 months.

The certificate was handed over to Mr. Joerg Mueller, Volkswagen Group Chief Representative India, President and Managing Director, Volkswagen India Private Limited by Mr. Anil Rairikar, Managing Director, TUV India Private Limited at the Volkswagen India plant Pune today.

Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Joerg Mueller said, "It is a moment of immense importance and pride for us to get such recognition in a short span of time. Volkswagen as a Group has stringent quality policies world over and we are proud to have followed the same level of quality assurance in the Pune plant as well." ISO 9001:2008 certification is another milestone for Volkswagen’s quality philosophy at its Pune plant. "This recognition reinstates the role of the plant in Volkswagen’s continuous India success story", Mr. Mueller stated.

ISO 9001:2008 specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. It also aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system. The ISO 9001:2008 certification of the plant reinforces Volkswagen’s quality commitment to customers buying Volkswagen cars in India. The ISO 9001:2008 certification ensures the quality of product through the quality of processes followed in the plant, which indicates that Volkswagen employees think and operate in processes in order to achieve Volkswagen standards of quality.
