MOBIS is working full-force on the Global Top Quality 2015 project to achieve the best quality globally by 2015.
MOBIS held the kick-off ceremony for the ‘Global Top Quality (GTQ) 2015’ target on January 26 at the Jincheon Factory, with over 450 guests in attendance including Vice-Chairman Chung Suk-soo and executives at MOBIS and partner companies. At the event, MOBIS announced the five key initiatives for GTQ: securing quality competitiveness of key parts, attaining the highest quality for electrical automotive components, achieving a no-defect mass production quality, completing the global quality guarantee scheme and building an integrated quality management system. MOBIS also kicked off plans for ‘reducing the disparity in technology against competitors’ and ‘gaining the expertise for best quality.’
MOBIS is taking ‘GTQ 2015’ as the opportunity to contribute to the global competitiveness of Hyundai KIA Motor by boosting its quality competitiveness, as well as to sign more foreign contracts to improve the global awareness of the MOBIS brand. In order to achieve the ‘GTQ 2015’ target, MOBIS is investing a total of \64.5 billion to add vehicle dependability equipment and vehicle ratings systems as a way to establish a basis for quality of key hybrid and electric car parts. Additionally, the company is also planning to develop a MOBIS-original manufacturing process by analyzing the technology at other companies.
MOBIS is especially seeking ways to perfect the making of regional quality systems as the company expands and its overseas productions bases sprawl to a more areas. MOBIS is currently operating independent quality centers in the US, China and the three European regions and while it is adding more equipment and human resources globally to perfectly meet the criteria for each of the different quality tests, it is planning to raise the bar for the quality systems of production centers all over the world by setting up a ratings system for each of the factories and by spreading case studies to be used as best examples.
MOBIS Vice-Chairman said, “Quality management is the essence for the normal operation of the Beijing Factory 3 and Brazil Factory, which will be completed in 2012. While we expect a counterattack from the American and Japanese carmakers and auto parts makers as they recover from last year’s crisis, MOBIS will be focusing on quality management for the entire company network to take appropriate measures.”
