That’s because it has just helped to further raise the bar for industry standards by becoming fully ISO 9001 certified, not just for its products either, but the supply of ECU enhancement services including training and program development.
The announcement is a welcome boost for motorists looking for improved performance, lower fuel bills or a combination of the two, especially with the recent record fuel prices. The news also provides yet another cast iron stamp of approval for Viezu customers.
Paul Busby, CEO, Viezu, said: “To be one of the first aftermarket car engine tuning company’s to achieve full ISO 9001 is great news for drivers of all cars but in particular those needing better performance, whether it be more power or improved fuel consumption.
“Of course, all our products and services are already fully insured and come with a full money back guarantee and this ISO certification gives another level of approval and reassurance.
“We are also hopeful that more and more professional tuning businesses follow our lead, so that anyone getting their car tuned knows that they will be in safe hands wherever they get it done.”
Indeed, to achieve the internationally recognised standard is no mean feat as the Bromsgrove-based business had its entire operational business and structure put under the microscope.
However, one of the major bonuses now the Quality Management System is fully integrated is that Viezu’s 340 approved dealers can guarantee that the electronic files they use are ISO compliant, as well as obviously benefitting from the service back-up and product support from award-winning Viezu itself.
Paul added: “Our ISO status is also great timing because we’re seeing an unprecedented demand for our products, which we believe is partly due to more motorists wanting better fuel economy now that they are faced with petrol and diesel prices going through the roof. In some instances our products give drivers a massive 15 per cent improvement in fuel economy, no matter what vehicle or driving style.”
Indeed, an example of Viezu’s tuning expertise include a Vauxhall Astra 1.9 CDTi (’05 registration with 120,000 miles) which recently had its power increased by 20% to 180bhp and at the same time a 20% improvement in its fuel economy.
“I’m also sure our approved dealers, who have to go through a tough approval process in order to wear the Viezu badge, will benefit greatly from our ISO status and make customers feel they are receiving the very best service available,” said Paul.
In fact, Viezu, which has developed more than 15,000 individual ECU programmes, recently doubled the size of its technical team and appointed a general manager as a result of the high demand for its services.
Paul concluded: “Viezu has been working hard to position itself as a centre of excellence in ECU recalibration and customers can rest assured that even though we’ve achieved ISO certification that we won’t sit on our laurels and will continue to look at ways to improve.”
