Fawn Passes Audit Receiving ISO/TS 16949 Certification

Fawn is pleased to announce that we have recently passed our plant audit for the ISO/TS 16949 certification. This technical specification is a worldwide quality management system designed to regulate the design and production of automobile products. This confirms that we build automotive parts based on the worldwide standards of excellence. Fawn is proud to continue on our path of quality excellence and to surpass the needs of our customers.

FY15 Fourth Quarter Update from our Chief Operating Officer

In a period of large corporation consolidation and newly developed partnerships, Fawn remains competitive and continues to gain market share through second tier supply to global OEMs. Recent awards in 2015 provide a variety of decorative interior as well as exterior structural components found in BMW, Audi, General Motors, Ford, Maserati, and Chrysler vehicles.

Support to these projects are provided through recent capital investment in our decorative injection molding facilities in Shenzhen China and Chihuahua Mexico. A global team of Sales Engineers and Program Managers ensure our customers’ expectations are met and in many cases exceeded throughout the life of the program.

While North American vehicle sales are projected to peak in 2017 and growth throughout the globe continues to ebb and tide based on different economies, Fawn is positioned strategically to remain competitive and provide a valuable niche within the automotive supply chain.

Fawn’s Summer Intern Project

Fawn Industries, through the hard work of our summer interns and core group of creative associates, is excited to announce our entry in a contest for the design of a multi-functional reader for Blackboard Transact. The reader was designed to be portable or mounted, with touch screen, card swipe, and with contactless card reader capabilities. The unit would ideally be used for card secured entry, event entry, or even purchases. We believe we have created an expertly functional and stylish solution, with the possibility of color or logo personalization that would fit a wide range of schools or businesses. At Fawn, we are always looking for new creative opportunities and to extend our resources. Please contact us with any questions about our plastics designs or production capabilities.


First Quarter Update from our Vice President of Sales

April 8, 2015 

New business development efforts in the first quarter of 2015 have been strong at Fawn Industries, particularly in the automotive sector, and we are pleased to announce the strategic addition of two new large Tier 1 automotive customers.  Simultaneously, Fawn achieved organic growth with four of our current leading Tier 1 automotive customers.

This newly awarded business is an excellent mix of functional (shoot and ship) plastics and decorative plastics, which will utilize current capacity and technologies of our Fawn Mexico and Fawn China manufacturing operations.  New molds will be developed for some of the projects, while Fawn will use existing molds for the balance.  These mid to high volume products include components for steering wheels, headlamps, key fobs, instrument panel controls, and USB power port sub-assemblies.  These products are launching in 2015 & 2016 and ultimately will be integrated into Audi, Chrysler (FCA), GM, Nissan, and Ford vehicles coming to market in the near future.

Fawn’s commitment to customer satisfaction, competitive pricing, on-time delivery, product quality, and flawless product launches, as well as, the outstanding efforts of our team at all levels has contributed to this success.  We appreciate our customers entrusting us with these challenging projects and are thankful to have earned their business.
