AS9100 Rev C Certification

September 2012 – ITW Heartland is pleased to announce they have successfully completed the requirements for AS9100 Rev C certification.
The AS9100 Rev C standard was established by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) for the purpose of achieving significant industry improvements in quality, safety, and reductions in cost throughout the value stream.
The standard also drives cost reductions throughout the aerospace industry supply chain. Many prime aerospace contractors, including the Boeing Company, now require AS9100 compliance of their suppliers.
Recognized globally within the aviation, space and homeland security industries, the AS9100 standard provides a framework for companies to improve quality, safety, customer service, and to reduce cost in the value stream. The recent Revision C requirements place additional emphasis on risk management and mitigation, supply chain management, planning and project management to ensure an overall higher level of customer satisfaction and quality.
