Quality and Sustainability

Smarteq develops and sells antennas within the Vehicle, Energy and Industrial segments globally. It’s important to us to conduct business responsibly and in a sustainable way. We therefore work with a long-term approach and close collaboration with customers and partners. We are convinced this contributes to growing our business too.

Quality

The Smarteq team always tries very hard to do things right the first time to ensure high quality and lowest possible impact on the environment in our processes, products and organization. Our excellent quality performance is a result of our structured way of working and the robust and reliable design of our products.

As being a tier 1 supplier to the global automotive industry for over forty years, Smarteq has great experience of fulfilling the highest quality and environmental requirements and expectations. We have long experience and good knowledge of working with PPAP, APQP, FMEA, MSA, IMDS, SPC, 8D and EDI/Odette. This experience and knowledge is also applied in our other two business areas; Industry and Energy.

Smarteq is certified according to the international standards ISO/TS 16949 and ISO 14001. A thoroughly documented Quality and Environmental Management System (QEMS) is implemented throughout the organization and serves as a guideline for all activities within the company. We are continuously challenging ourselves to improve our QEMS and our product range. The QEMS is regularly audited by an ac­credited third party to make sure all requirements in the standards are fulfilled and that the system is continuously improved.

Long-term approach

Being a company that works with product development entails extended processes and major investments from owners and financiers.

Having a long-term mind-set with regards to sustainability and management secures customer and owner value over time.

Close collaboration

We are careful to maintain positive and respectful relations with suppliers, consultants, universities and anyone else with whom we come into contact in our daily operations.
