During the week of April 24th the Seelze, Germany facility re-certified against ISO 9001 (quality) and ISO 14001 (environmental). In addition, the facility successfully certified against the stringent ISO/TS 1694 for suppliers of the automotive industry.
During the week of April 24th the Seelze, Germany facility re-certified against ISO 9001 (quality) and ISO 14001 (environmental). In addition, the facility successfully certified against the stringent ISO/TS 1694 for suppliers of the automotive industry.
Preparation began two years ago, when the site realized that certification was important to customers and that the requirements for certification was very much in line with Honeywell’s Six Sigma Plus culture and the new Honeywell Operating System. With the help of an external consultant, the team began an initiative in the summer of 2004 to understand the norm and its implications for the chemical industry. Next, all site processes were examined from a standpoint of this ambitious industry standard. Improvements were identified and put into practice over an extended period of time. The project included operations, analytics, technology, maintenance, supply chain and all functions.

All departments and functions were audited and after one week of intense discussions and presentations, the efforts were crowned with success. The certificate for compliance with ISO/TS 16949 will be presented to Honeywell Specialty Chemicals Seelze GmbH shortly. The Seelze site is one of the very few within Honeywell Specialty Materials to be ISO/TS 16949 certified.

This certification is a great accomplishment to the site and shows that the facility takes customer requirements seriously and continues to strive for customer excellence and process improvement. The exercise will be a terrific preparation for the implementation of the Honeywell Operating System which begins in a few weeks.
