What quality means to us

  • More than ISO/TS certification, also including customer standards
  • More than our plants, concerning the entire organization
  • More than product quality, including the whole management system

All Umicore Automotive Catalysts sites globally hold certificates ISO/TS 16949 for Quality, ISO 14001 for Environment and OHSAS 18001 for Health and Safety. All newly build plants or sites follow that approach in a set time frame.

The Umicore Catalyst USA, LLC. Bayport Production plant holds an ISO 9001:2015 certificate.

As a provider of products and services to the automotive industries, we also need to comply with stringent individual customer standards. Our entire organization is committed to constantly improving the quality of our products, processes and services in order to ensure that our customers receive high quality products, produced under environmental friendly conditions in safe workplaces.

Our mission is expressed in our policy: we secure our worldwide leadership and business success through innovation while continuously improving our product and process technologies as well as our services.
