Production & Quality Control

Nichicon, a Reliable Supplier of High-Quality Products

All production facilities of Nichicon utilize our unique production management system in order to ensure that we maintain and continually improve upon the high standards of quality that have gained us worldwide recognition. This system allows verifying the details of when, where, and under what conditions each product was manufactured. It ensures stable and reliable production by enforcing strict quality control measures and eliminating defects. Our persistent pursuit of this “zero-defect” goal itself has been the engine driving us to achieve world quality assurance standards ahead of our competition.

Acquisition of ISO 9001 Certification

There are international standards for quality assurance systems formulated by the ISO (International Organization for Standardization). Nichicon's headquarters, its domestic sales offices and production sites in Japan and overseas have been able to obtain ISO 9001 certification.

Acquisition of IATF 16949 Certification

This standard was formulated based on the QS-9000 component procurement standards of the Big 3 automakers in the U.S. (General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler), and adding the requirements defined in standards used in various European countries, particularly VDA6.1 (Germany), EAQF (France) and AVSQ (Italy).
This standard was formulated for the purpose of assuring high quality and price reductions by applying common standards when automobile manufacturers procure components and other products. Within the Nichicon Group, our NICHICON (OHNO) CORPORATION and 10 production sites have obtained this certification.
