Vajra Rubber Products, a subsidiary of Core International, Achieves Rare API Q Certification in India

on in Press Releases

Vajra Rubber Products (P) Limited (“Vajra”), a subsidiary of Houston based Core International, LLC (“Core”), earned the rare ISO/TS 29001:2010 Total Quality Management Systems certification (“API Q”) at the end of December. Core and its subsidiaries provide engineered rubber components to a variety of heavy industrial original equipment manufacturers globally.

ISO/TS 29001:2010 defines the quality management system for product and service supply organizations for the petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industry. It is an ISO technical specification that outlines requirements for the design, development, production, installation, and service of products for the upstream and downstream petroleum industry. It is equivalent to API Spec Q1 without the Monogram annex.

“Core is very proud of the API Q certification for Vajra,” says Core CEO Cody W. Johnson. “I believe we are the only rubber molder in South Asia that has both the ISO/TS 29001:2010 and the ISO/TS 16949 certifications. We are able to offer a very unique value proposition to our customer base.”

“This achievement is an important milestone for us at Vajra Rubber as it brings us a step closer to our company goals”, added Sabareenath Gollinakutty, Executive Director of Vajra. “Through a process of continuous improvement, we aim to deliver supreme quality products and services.”

Vajra is located in the southwestern Indian State of Kerala in the midst of major natural rubber production. Core made its initial investment in Vajra in 2008 .
