American Zettler Inc. announces all of its automotive relay production has been awarded ISO/TS 16949:2002 certification from the International Automotive Task Force (IATF). Aligning previous multiple automotive standards, such as QS-9000 (USA), AVSQ (Italy), EAQF (France) and VDA6.1 (Germany), the ISO/TS 16949 quality management system seeks to eliminate multiple and overlapping certifications.

"We are proud to say American Zettler is one of the first Asian automotive relay plants to obtain the latest ISO/TS certification," commented Fred Harmon, American Zettler Vice President - Sales and Marketing.

By achieving this latest milestone, American Zettler continues to demonstrate its long-term commitment to the automotive/transportation market. This focus will continue throughout 2004 with additional product offerings as well as more available options on current relay products.
