Quality determines a company’s success.
For a firm to thrive in the global market, it must first earn

as well as excellent internal quality management. Throughout
the years, Tietex Asia, Ltd. has gained a reputation for this
via its exceptionally tight quality control policy. Implementation
of ISO 9001:2000 quality management and ISO 14001 environmental
systems, as well as others, underlines the company’s determination
to achieve quality excellence.
It is this appetite for perfection that has brought Tietex

is affirmed by being one of the first to achieve this certification.
This new automotive standard replaces the QS 9000:1998 quality
