Dubai group OSE wins top auto industry certification

DUBAI, June 12, 2018

OSE Industries, a highly specialised aluminium extrusion producer based in Dubai, UAE, has taken its business to a new level after receiving one of auto industry's latest certifications - IATF16949 - from TUV Rheinland Middle East.

The firm's range of high-quality alloy tubes and profiles are now being used by one of the world's most sophisticated electric car brands, said a statement from the company.

The new IATF 16949:2016 standard, which replaces the previous ISO/TS 16949 technical specification, defines the requirements of a quality management system for organizations operating in the automotive industry. Achieving the IATF certification positions OSE for success in this competitive industry sector.

OSE is one of the three companies in the world providing MPE Tube for battery cooling in electric cars and is a major supplier to key marketss such as US, South America, Europe and Asia.

On winning the key certification, CEO Magdy Samoul said: "ISO/TS 16949, in recent times became one of the most widely used international standards in the automotive industry harmonizing the different assessment and certification systems in the global automotive supply chain."

"However, when IATF 16949:2016 was published by the IATF to supersede ISO/TS 16949, it redefined the requirements of quality management systems for businesses involved in the automotive industry. Certification by TUV Rheinland is a tremendous addition to our capabilities that will deliver massive benefits in the years to come," noted Samoul.

Located Strategically near EGA, a well-known smelter which supplies basic raw material to the company, OSE is a key manufacturer of products such as MPE and Serpentine Tube which are used in automotive and home air conditioning sector.

Andreas Höfer, the executive VP of TUV Rheinland India, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific, said: "Innovation, premium quality and keeping up with the highest standards across the entire supply chain are crucial for any company seeking success in the global automotive industry."

"Management systems, certified according to IATF16949:2016, offer forward-looking enterprises like OSE a gateway to new markets and prestigious customers," he remarked.

As a global leader in testing, inspection and certification with over 145 years of industry-proven experience, TUV Rheinland is adept at keeping customers abreast of the latest standards, stated Hofer.

That includes the new IATF16949:2016, which was developed by the International Automotive Task Force based on unprecedented levels of industry feedback and engagement with members of the Automotive Industry Action Group.-TradeArabia News Service
