Coverking pioneered ISO Quality Standards in the Automotive Softgoods Accessory market.

Coverking was the first Automotive Softgoods Aftermarket manufacturer to gain ISO Quality Certification. After Coverking set the bar by gaining the strict ISO:9001 certification, other manufacturers were forced to improve their quality systems. Coverking continues it's lead, having attained QS:9000 and TS16949 certifications.

What is the TS16949 Quality System?

ISO/TS 16949:2002 is an International Standards Organization Technical Specification, which aligns existing American (QS-9000), German (VDA6.1), French (EAQF) and Italian (AVSQ) quality systems standards, with the aim of eliminating the need for multiple certifications to satisfy multiple customer requirements. Together with ISO 9001:2000, ISO/TS 16949:2002 specifies the quality system requirements for the design/development, production, installation and servicing of products. In addition, there are customer specific requirements that are required by individual subscribing vehicle manufacturers.

Why produce such a high level of quality for products such as seat covers, car covers and dash covers?
To some, the expense, time and effort spent attaining these quality standards seems overkill for the products we manufacture. Coverking is Passionate about our products - we use them and continue to improve them. Everything from our fabrics, our patterns, and our production processes are continually improving. The only downside of purchasing a Coverking product is that it will most likely fit better, be made of superior materials, and cost less in a year's time.

Coverking's passion flows from the top down. Upper management sets the tone for our level of quality, efficiency and customer satisfaction. Some cutting-edge manufacturing processes have been developed by Coverking for making our products the best they can possibly be. We take a critical view of our products and always consider customer feedback . If you have any questions on Coverking quality systems, please contact us .
