HiSpec Wheel & Tire Inc., a supplier of aluminum wheels to the RV, medium truck and niche automotive industries, announced the certification of the company’s quality system based on the ISO 9001 standards.

According to a press release, international standards such as those required by ISO 9001 are critical to original equipment manufacturers and play an integral role in the quality of products they produce. ISO standards are also a key component in providing greater protection for consumers and the environment.

“This is a major step in our continuous effort as the industry leader in providing the safest and most reliable RV and specialty trailer wheels to our customers,” said Jim Guibert, director of sales and marketing for Mishawaka, Ind.-based HiSpec Wheel & Tire. “We have always been a leader and innovator in our industry and our ISO accreditation is yet another way that HiSpec differentiates itself from the competition in the specialty trailer and heavy-duty wheel manufacturing industry.”
