AS9100 Certification Is on Schedule at JR Machine

AS9100 Certification JR Machine

We’ve always had a keen focus on quality at JR Machine. That shines through in everything from the quality and accuracy of the parts we manufacture to the cleanliness and organization of our shop floor. We’ve been ISO 9001 certified since 2002, but we recently stepped up our game by undertaking the process to become AS9100 certified.

Those in aerospace manufacturing are uniquely aware of AS9100. It is arguably the most recognized and important quality management system requirement for aviation, space and defense organizations. It includes all the elements of ISO 9001, plus additional elements unique to the aerospace industry. Certification ensures that manufacturers and suppliers are producing high quality parts that meet rigid requirements for safety, quality and material traceability.

Nearing the Goal Line of Our AS9100 Certification

As an industry, aerospace is often grouped with military, but to us it represents so much more: an opportunity to make the highest quality parts in a sector with the highest quality standards. We began working with Perry Johnson Registrars at the beginning of the year on our AS9100 certification process and expect formal certification by year end. To further solidify our credentials, we are also focused on achieving our Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMCC) and ITAR registration to enhance our services to the defense and aerospace markets. Obtaining these credentials will provide additional assurance to our aerospace & military machined parts customers, but the quality processes we must adhere to benefit all of our customers.

Aside from the various credentials, JR Machine’s focus on material traceability, production part approval process (PPAP), and APQP-style (Advanced Product Quality Planning) control plans distinguish our shop as a trusted manufacturing partner for high-quality aerospace parts. With our advanced automation and high-tech offering, we’re looking forward to helping aerospace and defense companies streamlining the sourcing of complex parts.
