AHW Hires Expert Resource. AS9120 Certification On Track For December 2011

June 3, 2011 marks Aircraft Hardware West’s nine year anniversary. This milestone represents a history of steady growth by a company committed to providing the highest level of quality products and services in the Aerospace fastening industry. In 2005, AHW took a major step in solidifying their quality management systems by becoming a certified ISO 9001 distributor. And now, in partnering with quality consultants, Expert Resource, AHW is on track for AS9120 certification in December 2011. “In order to better serve the highly specialized needs of our customers, AHW is always identifying opportunities for operational improvements” says AHW President/CEO Frank Ioffrida. “Certification as an AS9120 distributor is a promise to our customers that we are committed to the highest quality standards.”
The rigorous certification process for AS9120 underwent a significant change recently with the introduction of AS9120 Rev A entitled “Quality Management Systems – Requirements for Aviation, Space and Defense Distributors.” One significant difference in Rev A is the implementation of AS9101D – an altogether different auditing methodology performed exclusively by AEA certified auditors. Lindsay Vaughn, AHW Operations Managers says, “Expert Resource is extremely knowledgeable in best practices for a successful certification process.” By combining AHW’s commitment to quality excellence with the expertise of Expert Resource, Aircraft Hardware West is on target to be AS9120 certified by December 2011.
