MILTON KEYNES, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vidiwave, the leading provider of mobile CCTV equipment, announced today that its European design and manufacturing facility in The Netherlands has again achieved approval from Bombardier Transportation, one of the world's largest train builders. Bombardier Transportation conducts regular inspections of its suppliers' facilities to ensure they meet its stringent manufacturing and quality control regime.
The approval allows Vidiwave to continue supplying mobile CCTV solutions to Bombardier Transportation on a worldwide basis. Vidiwave plans to expand its market presence as the leading mobile CCTV supplier to the rail industry - evidenced by its recent delivery of 1,700 mobile CCTV systems to Transnet, Africa's largest rail freight operator.
Vidiwave is ahead of the industry by working towards the new ISO 9001 2015 accreditation in the first quarter of next year. The new accreditation includes full digitisation of all of its manufacturing and quality control processes. The new system that Vidiwave is currently implementing will help it achieve its goal of zero failures.
The facility is capable of manufacturing up to 7,000 custom built rail DVRs per annum, which allows new clients to retrofit the latest technology to their existing train wiring systems and connector infrastructures. Vidiwave is also the only company in Europe that is capable of manufacturing a fully compliant EN50155 IP66 Rail DVR which is certified by the industry's EMC test house, Thales Germany.
Paramount to Vidiwave's rapid growth is the industry-wide recognition of its product reliability in the field, with a documented failure rate of less than one percent. Bombardier's approval was granted based on Vidiwave's quality performance over the last two years of 0% non-confirming goods.
Vidiwave CEO, David Grattan, said "We are delighted that Bombardier has re-approved our manufacturing facility. Product quality is a driving factor in our development. Bombardier is an important customer to Vidiwave and we look forward to working with them for years to come."
As part of Vidiwave's global expansion strategy, it is building on its channel partner program and seeking new systems integrators and installation partners worldwide. Vidiwave's proven product range includes DOO systems, wireless video solutions, fuel saving technology, driver safety tools and remote vehicle diagnostics.
