Why You Should Only Work With An AS9100-Certified Plating Company
Every business aims to enhance clients’ satisfaction and earn long-term trust from customers. The key to doing this is to back up products and services with official certifications that prove adherence to high quality and standards. For instance, the AS9100 certification is an integral standard in implementing aircraft suppliers’ Quality Management Systems (QMS) in the aeronautics and aviation industries.
New Method Plating Company, Inc. has a strong commitment to quality. Over the years, we have ensured to continuously strive for excellence by upgrading our facilities and equipment, continuously empowering our team, and working hard to achieve essential certifications, including AS9100, to maintain our reputation as the finest specialty platers in the New England region.
What is AS9100 Certification
The International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) released AS9100 based on the internationally recognized ISO 9001 standards. ISO stands for the International Organization for Standardization, which is a global federation of technical bodies that prepare international standards.
AS9100 and ISO 9001 are both specifications for creating a QMS; however, AS9100 is customized for aviation, space, and defense organizations. Products made with AS9100-certified QMS have guaranteed quality, improved services, and met customers’ demands, increasing their satisfaction.
Advantages Of Working With An AS9100-Certified Company
A QMS or Quality Management System is a collection of a company’s rules, established procedures, and records that outline how it serves its market. The AS9100 standards give a company set guidelines for ensuring high-quality products or services. Beyond quality assurance, here are some other advantages of choosing an AS9100-certified company for your plating needs.
- Guaranteed customer satisfaction
