Hoosier Racing Tire announces that the Custom Manufacturing division responsible for producing rubber mixing, gum and textile calendering recently achieved ISO 9001-2008 certification, recognizing that the quality system meets standards developed by the International Organization for Standardization of Geneva, Switzerland.

The ISO 9001 standard is understood internationally to represent a company’s commitment to a quality process.  The standard requires a company to have a quality management system based on the idea of building quality into everything the company does.  This certification further strengthens our commitment to our customers and our Company Quality Policy:

Hoosier Racing Tire – Custom Manufacturing is committed to providing high quality rubber and rubber products that meet customer requirements while emphasizing the continual improvement in our process, products, and employees.

Recommendation for certification was made after a rigorous audit by an accredited independent registrar.  This audit was the culmination of an intensive project to develop and implement a quality system based on ISO standards.  Hoosier Racing Tire employees received specialized training to increase quality awareness and establish a consistent direction for quality through improved communication, control of quality costs, and standardization of processes.  With the involvement of the company’s entire management and staff we have incorporated activities into our daily routine which are designed to prevent problems from occurring, detect them when they do occur and prevent them from reoccurring.
