The Hinkle culture for quality is at the core of Hinkle philosophy and is fundamental to all aspects of business. Hinkle is committed to ISO-9001 standards.
The Hinkle team has also earned the Q1 Preferred Quality Award from Ford Motor Company. This award is presented by Ford in recognition of suppliers that have achieved a sustained level of excellence in customer satisfaction by meeting the automaker's stringent requirements for quality, delivery, materials management, and engineering.
Hinkle has received various other quality awards, including Chrysler's Gold Pentastar Award.
In 2017, Hinkle Manufacturing began the process of being certified to ISO 9001:2015. Though transition to the 2015 version of the new ISO 9001 Standard will not be mandatory until September 2018, Hinkle decided to make the transition early so as to reinforce its commitment to innovation and being the industry leader. Over the next several months, we will formalize and document the quality management processes and manufacturing procedures that have earned us such high customer satisfaction ratings for the past 20 years.
