The ISO 9002 is a globally accepted seal of quality assurance and compliance to international systems and standards. Apart from highlighting the company's vision of becoming the world's leading consumer company for automotive products and services, ISO 9002 is set to help the company achieve global competitiveness and recognition. Moreover, it guarantees consumers that Ford's products have passed the strictest & highest quality standards.
A dynamic pack of Ford employees was formed to create the ISO Core Team, who together with Ford Philippines Management initiated awareness campaigns & training programs in its effort to encourage active participation and motivation among employees. Ford Philippines Plant ISO Coordinator Alain Basbas shared, "We can compete more effectively on quality, both through customer recognition of our quality system and through our own efficiencies gained from implementing the system."
