It’s What Drives Us

All Global MPA facilities are ISO:TS 16949 certified.


Developed by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF), TS 16949 is an exacting standard that is a required certification for supplying parts to many of the world’s leading Original Equipment automotive manufacturers.

The TS 16949 specification was designed to help manage quality and process efficiency, while providing for continuous improvement, emphasizing defect prevention and minimizing waste generated by the automotive industry supply chain.

•  MPA has been TS 16949-certified since 2006 and is subject to biannual inspections by external IATF auditors to maintain certification. As a TS 16949-certified manufacturer, MPA continues to meet or exceed the highest standards in the industry.

•  MPA is recognized by Frost & Sullivan — an independent industry analyst. Having received awards for Product Innovation and Value Enhancement, MPA was the first starter and alternator manufacturer to be recognized by Frost & Sullivan.

Our dedication to innovation and continuous improvement motivates us to maintain the highest levels of certification as proof of our commitment to quality.
