Commenting on the award of the much sought after industry-recognised standard, CEO Paul McMullan said: “I am extremely proud of our UK team to achieve this key strategic goal for our business. Our motivation to achieve and sustain this standard is driven from our desire to be the first-choice partner to our many customers across the automotive, aerospace and industrial markets we serve. We have a strong reputation for supplying high-quality products and services, and this achievement further enhances that reputation.”

For the majority of leading vehicle manufacturers, certification to this specification is a mandatory requirement for doing business. Sigmatex has been a major supplier to the automotive sector for almost 40 years and in that time has built an enviable reputation as the premier supplier of carbon fibre textiles to many of the world’s luxury, supercar and sportscar manufacturers. This rigorous standard is notoriously difficult to achieve, and is the culmination of almost two years of work for the Sigmatex team.

Our motivation to pursue IATF accreditation comes from two key principles: firstly, to demonstrate our long-term commitment to being a major supplier to the automotive sector and continuing to strengthen our value proposition to both existing and new OEMs and Tier supply partners. And secondly, to embrace manufacturing best practise systems and processes, such as the ‘Core tools’ of IATF to improve our effectiveness and quality standards, which will be beneficial to all our customers. I would like to thank our partners who have supported us on this journey and give special recognition to our team of committed and determined colleagues for making this possible,” concluded Mr McMullan.
