Cloyes Achieves ISO 9001:2015 Certification

ISO 9001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality-management system.

Cloyes Gear and Products announced that it achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification for its manufacturing plant in Paris, Arkansas.

Cloyes is a Fort Smith, Arkansas-based designer, developer, manufacturer and distributor of timing-drive systems and components for OEMs and the automotive aftermarket.

ISO 9001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality-management system. Organizations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. It is the most popular standard in the ISO 9000 series and the only standard in the series to which organizations can certify.

“For nearly a century, Cloyes has been building its business and reputation by offering the highest-quality timing systems and components,” said Steve Fairbanks, vice president of manufacturing for Cloyes. “After regaining ownership of the Paris plant in October, this is an important milestone for Cloyes. The ISO 9001:2015 certification demonstrates our rigorous quality standards and commitment to continuously improve our business processes.”

The 155,000-square-foot manufacturing plant manufactures highly machined powertrain gears, sprockets and idler assemblies for automotive OEMs, the automotive aftermarket, marine and high-performance applications. The plant’s key processes include machining, hobbing and shaping, heat treatment and finishing, and is home to a quality and metrology laboratory that supports both manufacturing and engineering product development.

“With a deep-seated commitment to customer success, Cloyes drives innovation and manufactures products that enhance engine performance and provide peace of mind to drivers,” said Cloyes CEO John Bohenick. “The industry has a firm belief in the ability and strength of our products and our people, and that is reiterated with the completion of the ISO 9001:2015 external audit.”
