Certified Production and Assembly Processes
VOXX Automotive maintains international status in quality management systems for many of its products. The company is ISO 9000, ISO 14001 and TS16949 certified. In support of its OE relationship with the FORD Motor Company they secured Q1 status nearly 12 years ago. These certifications have allowed us to produce consistent products and systems for GM, Nissan, Ford, Mazda, Toyota, Kia and Chrysler.
As part of our community involvement and in conjunction with our OEM customers, VOXX International, parent company of VOXX Automotive, has also developed an ISO 14001 Environmental Management System, which was certified in 2003. Our major environmental initiatives include recycling of many different materials and control of operations related to water and air quality requirements. We recently completed our first annual surveillance by our registrar with zero findings. (Click here to review our certifications).
Global Supply Chain & Logistics Management
Design and engineering are only part of the process. VOXX Automotive maintains a complete supply chain and logistics management structure to ensure not only on-time delivery but also quality standards that support the warranty and quality levels of our OE partners. This team works closely with our procurement and QC teams at our supply base to ensure that the component manufacturing process meets or exceeds expectations. We treat our suppliers as partners and assist them in keeping pace with the latest techniques to assure Quality levels that approach Tier one, even where they are not required. Our logistics team coordinates vessel departure from the Pacific Rim with components and completed assemblies to deliver materials to production facilities in the U.S. On-time delivery is one of our strongest and most compelling capabilities.
160 people and growing support our vertically integrated manufacturing process in our 80,000 square foot in our main Florida facility. Manufacturing processes include foam production, steel/post notching, steel assembly, vinyl lamination and headrest cover fabrication. A separate production team assembles the security, keyless entry and remote start systems that are included in many of our programs.
Throughout each stage, VOXX Automotive maintains international status in quality management systems to supply the very best in product application to the broadest range of Automotive Partners.
Our success begins with design and development engineers, technicians and program managers working in concert with our customers to design, develop and validate new products in Remote Start, Vehicle Security, Phone-as-a-Key and Rear Seat Entertainment. These engineered and validated products are then shipped and installed through a unique combination of traditional vehicle factories plus mod centers, certified installers and direct to dealer channels. Our engineering facilities are primarily located in Detroit, MI and Orlando, FL. Engineering capabilities include product design and development in Electrical, Mechanical, RF, Software, Production and Validation Engineering. Our teams partner with our customers to work from concept design, through product development, certification via testing and validation into manufacturing and ensure highest levels of support during vehicle service and warranty.
Our design and engineering centers support our customers with vehicle systems integration and traditional product development capabilities such as:
- Industrial Design
- Electrical and Electronic Circuit Design
- Embedded and Mobile Application Software Development
- Network communications development
- Mechanical Engineering Design and Development
- Mechanical and Electrical Systems Integration
- Design for Manufacturing, Assembly & Service.
In-House validation capabilities include full product characterization. Our capabilities are supplemented with certified global partner test labs to ensure all major testing and validation requirements can be provided to meet project development and timing.
Our staff of engineers and technical specialists works with engineering teams at the automotive manufacturers to:
- Conceptualize products including OE specific industrial designs
- Establish functional, design, performance and validation requirements
- Develop and deliver exciting new products to the marketplace.
The company holds numerous patents and patents pending in areas including RF reception, vehicle security, RSE and Telematics. (click here to view our patents)
Our engineering staff continuously strives to develop products and systems that integrate a diverse range of features and functions by interconnecting our products with existing in-vehicle systems through automotive data bus systems (i.e. LIN, CAN, etc) and wireless networking standards such as WiFi & Bluetooth. Leveraging these communication systems with data from the vehicle enables a combination of high performance, depth of features and benefits of economical high value solutions through reduced integration time and cost.
