Strengthening our quality assurance system and implementation of the quality audit for all regular divisions and domestic/overseas affiliates
At KUBOTA, an original quality assurance system is in place in each of the consolidated divisions and regular divisions to satisfy the diversifying needs of customers for pipes, agricultural machinery, and KUBOTA's other products and services, thus maintaining high quality and product safety.
In order to ensure safety of all our products regardless of whether they support the basis of the customers' daily lives but not directly used by our customers or those that are directly used by our customers, we are pouring our full efforts onto manufacturing them and ensuring the best possible quality for each different product.
To enhance the efficiency of this system, we conducted a quality audit, in addition to the conventional ISO*1 audit, at KUBOTA and its domestic / overseas affiliates.
Status of ISO9001 Certification (As of April 1, 2012)
In 1993, the Hirakata Plant became the first business site of the KUBOTA Group to obtain ISO9001 international quality assurance certification, which was quickly followed by other sites and affiliates within the Group. By promoting the quality management program based on ISO9001, KUBOTA is committed to earning customer trust and delivering satisfying, high-quality products.
