EAGLE Registrations has awarded several Composites One locations the AS9120 Rev B Multi-Site Certification, which includes the ISO 9001:2015 standard.
The US locations include Lenexa, Kansas; Monessen, Pennsylvania; Rock Hill, South Carolina; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Santa Fe Springs, California. The Composites One corporate headquarters in Arlington Heights, Illinois, also received certification as a support location. The assessment was performed in accordance with the requirements of AS9014/1:2012. EAGLE Registrations, a third-party certification body which audits businesses to meet international standards, is accredited under the aerospace Registrar Management Programme.
The Composites One/BMB Solutions Composites location in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, also received the AS9120 Rev B certification using a local accredited registrar.
AS9120 is an aviation, space and defence quality standard based on the ISO 9001 quality management system and supported by the International Aerospace Quality Group. The standards are published by the ANAB (ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board) International Organisation of Standards and require third party independent confirmation of conformance to the standards. AS9120 recognises Composites One as a compliant, reliable and preferred supplier to the aerospace industry and puts the company in a position to service aerospace and advanced composites customers which require this certification. Previously, Composites One was only certified at its Monessen, Pennsylvania, location.
This new designation now brings the total to five US distribution locations, along with one in Canada, with more to come in the future.
“This is a major accomplishment for the organisation and credit goes to those who led this effort,” says Leon Garoufalis, President & COO of Composites One. “Our distribution centre and corporate teams put in a great deal of extra work to make this happen – on time and with no major non-conformities identified during the audit.”
“AS9120 Rev B Multi-Site Certification, along with the inclusion of ISO 9001:2015, will enhance our documentation and internal processes putting us in a better position to serve a more sophisticated customer base,” he adds. “We will certify additional locations as we expand our capabilities to meet specific customer needs.”
