Production Measures for Emerging Markets
In the NGK Group, we work to ensure that all of our overseas production bases operate in accordance with the NGK Group Code of Conduct and obtain ISO 9001 or IATF 16949 certification, as well as carry out quality assurance, quality control, quality improvement, quality-related training, and other activities. In fiscal 2020, NGK Ceramics (Thailand) Co., Ltd. obtained IATF 16949 certification, and now all production bases are certified. We are working now to secure certification within three years of new sites, including those in emerging markets.
