OMNITECH Engineering & Manufacturing Inc. of Lynchburg has achieved a dual certification for quality management. Here is a press release from OMNITECH:
OMNITECH Engineering & Manufacturing, Inc. is pleased to announce the achievement of dual AS9100:B / ISO 9001:2008 Certification. Acquiring the AS9100:B / ISO 9001:2008 Certification confirms OMNITECH’s commitment to provide products and services of the highest quality.
AS9100 is widely adopted in the aerospace industry as a standardized Quality Management System. Instituted in October 1999 by the Society of Automotive Engineers and the European Association of Aerospace Industries, AS9100 was adopted shortly thereafter in Japan and Asia through a cooperative effort of the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG). The AS9100 standard fully incorporates the entire current version of ISO 9001, while adding 80 additional requirements and 18 amplifications specific to quality and safety in the aerospace industry. All major aerospace manufacturers and suppliers worldwide require compliance and/or registration to AS9100 as a condition of doing business with them.
With the AS9100:B / ISO 9001:2008 Certification, OMNITECH’s commitment to excellent customer service and the delivery of quality products is affirmed to a market that relies on quality and accountability every day. The AS9100 Quality Management System certification places OMNITECH in the International Aerospace Quality Group’s Online Aerospace Supplier Information System of Certified Suppliers (OASIS).
“We have always focused on providing the highest quality to our customers”, says Pia Fietzke, President and CFO of OMNITECH. “Becoming registered to the globally recognized AS9100 Quality Standard allows our customers to be confident that dealing with OMNITECH assures quality. By providing products to AS9100 standards, we guarantee quality.”
John West, Vice President of Operations, was instrumental in the development and implementation of OMNITECH’s Quality Management System. Maintaining compliance and identifying opportunities for future improvement remain part of his responsibilities.
OMNITECH received AS9100:B / ISO 9001:2008 certification following extensive audits of company operations, procedures and floor practices. OMNITECH’s compliance with AS9100:B / ISO 9001:2008 Quality Standards is certified by Quality Systems Registrars, Inc., the first and leading quality management systems registrar in the United States.
