Electralloy/G.O. Carlson Plate has achieved AS9100:2009 Management System Certificate. Developed specifically for the aviation and aerospace industry, the international AS9100C certification recognizes organizations that can link business objectives with operating effectiveness. The designation applies to the entire Electralloy/G.O. Carlson Plate quality system and covers literally every process within that system, ranging from materials inspection and melt shop practices, to paperwork, on-time delivery, and continuous improvement procedures.
“AS9100C represents the highest levels of quality. It is a whole new level above the requirements of ISO 9001. We have tightened and improved literally every process and procedure in the operation,” said President, Tracy Rudolph. “Achieving certification validates our ongoing commitment to quality and to improving the product integrity and long-term value Electralloy provides to our customers.”
AS9100:2009 was a logical step for Electralloy/G.O. Carlson Plate as the company has increased their focus and commitment to aerospace customers over the last decade.
To comply with the requirements of AS9100:2009, Electralloy/G.O.Carlson Plate began upgrading its existing ISO 9001:2008 Quality System a little over a year ago. The certification process began with an analysis of requirements, then the integration of applicable tasks, and finally, an exhaustive audit process after the fine tuning of every system of every quality process.
