ALL THREE HENTZEN FACILITIES PASS AS 9100:2009 REV. C UPGRADE AUDITS
It is my pleasure to announce that the Quality Management Systems at all Hentzen facilities are now qualified for certification to the new Aerospace Quality Management System Standard AS 9100:2009 REV. C.
To support qualification each facility put forth great effort in developing additions and improvements to our AS 9100:2004 REV. B compliant systems. These efforts resulted in revised, upgraded quality management programs which were the subject of extensive audits by AQA International in June and July. The audit results were outstanding. Our Batavia, Greenville and Milwaukee facilities were all found to be compliant to the new standard. This is a significant achievement. Moreover, it is a testament to our commitment, even as a rapidly growing organization, to ensuring quality in our products and service to our customers by continuously developing and following procedures and processes. These are important keys to our success, and the results of these audits show how dedicated we are at all levels and to keeping that a priority.
Congratulations to all those who participated in the audit process, and to all our employees for such great work and attention to process and controls in development, manufacture, delivery and support of our coatings.
