ACDi Achieves AS9100 Certification

Reading time ( words)

EMS firm ACDi has been granted AS9100 certification. This affirms ACDi’s devotion to upholding the strict requirements that govern the manufacturing of aerospace-related products.

“Certification affords ACDi a certain competitive advantage,” says Bill Hornbaker, president and CEO of ACDi. “To be certified with this vital industry standard tells our clients and partners in the aerospace sector that we are well equipped to address their most challenging manufacturing requirements.”

AS9100 adapts and supplements the ISO 9001 requirements as they were established by the aerospace industry in order to meet the high-level quality needs of the DoD, NASA and FAA.

The standard (officially titled AS9100 Quality Management Systems – Requirements for Aviation, Space and Defense Organizations) was developed by Working Group 11 of ISO TC20 and was supported by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG), all together in an effort to establish a single quality management system for use within the aerospace industry.
