ChemResearch Corporation (CRC Surface Technologies) is pleased to announce the achievement of AS9100 Rev C Certification.
AS9100 is the internationally recognized Quality Management System (QMS) standard specific to the aerospace, aviation and defense industries. This standard is strongly supported and adhered to by major aerospace OEMs and is being required by Tier I suppliers within the supply chain on an increasing basis.
AS9100 certification reflects CRC’s commitment in meeting and exceeding the increasingly stringent industry requirements for aerospace related services and assures our special processes consistently meet the requirements and expectations of customers presenting the most challenging applications.
This certification strengthens CRC’s competitive position and standardizes quality, reliability and safety processes across their aerospace, defense and aviation clientele. AS9100 is managed by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) and based on the ISO 9001:2008 quality management standard. It provides 80 additional requirements and 18 amplifications specific to aerospace business operations.
According to James Burriss, President & CEO at CRC Surface Technologies, “The AS9100 certification is the standard to which aerospace, aviation & defense suppliers are measured and reflects the continuous improvement efforts and commitment made by our employees to deliver the highest quality services to our customers. The addition of AS9100 compliments our NADCAP Certifications and highlights the company’s focus on supporting the stringent requirements of the aerospace, aviation, and defense industries. The road to AS9100 began a year ago when we decided to procure quality management software to streamline and support our continuous improvement initiatives. The quality team made the commitment to compliance then stepped up to the challenge of upgrading the quality management system, resulting in the successful achievement of AS9100C certification. Moreover, pursuing AS9100C certification was a logical next step for improving our business practices while growing our business. It’s the perfect foundation as we work towards becoming a certified FAA repair station.”
