Industry   Mitsubishi is strengthening its quality control
The Japanese company said three divisions - Mitsubishi Cable, Mitsubishi Shindoh and Mitsubishi Aluminum - faked data for products supplied to the aerospace, car and electric power industries.

Mitsubishi said the subsidiaries "deviated from customer standards or internal company specifications due to misconduct, including the rewriting of inspection records data."

Mitsubishi Aluminum's products were deemed safe.

As a result, the company said it is strengthening its quality control. "MCI and MSC will need to promptly validate the safety of their products with the cooperation of their customers, and then, we have decided to publicly announce the status of the handling of non-conforming products," the company said.

The company said it is suspending delivery of all non-conforming products from its plants.

"We have not at this time identified any instances of illegal conduct or concerns relating to safety at either [subsidiary]," Mitsubishi Materials said.
