General Plastics Manufacturing Company reaffirms its commitment to providing quality products to its customers with the renewal of its AS9100C certification
Tacoma, Wash. – March 21, 2016 – General Plastics Manufacturing Company, producer of high-performance polyurethane foam and build-to-print composite parts, is pleased to announce the renewal of its AS9100 Rev C certification. The company first received its AS9100 certification in 2008. The certificate renewal demonstrates General Plastics' continued commitment to achieve the stringent quality standards required by its aerospace customers.
Sponsored by major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), AS9100 Rev C is a global quality management system standard based on ISO 9001:2008, containing additional requirements for the aviation, space and defense industries. It provides specific requirements for quality and safety. Rev C, in particular, puts greater emphasis on a risk management system that is integrated throughout the standard.
With the renewal of its AS9100C certificate, General Plastics affirms its commitment and obligation to meet customer requirements and exceed expectations. Its customers, aerospace and non-aerospace customers alike, are assured that the company has the ability to consistently produce safe and reliable products. In addition, retaining the certification shows the company’s equal emphasis on continually improving products and processes. A quality management system is in place to ensure the effectiveness of controls and processes that uphold the company to AS9100C standards.
“Upholding the high level of standards of AS9100C is an investment and a commitment by the whole organization,” said Joel Landoe, General Plastics’ quality manager. “The culture of quality and continuous improvement at General Plastics is centered on AS9100. It has become a fundamental part of our processes so that it becomes a standard expectation that our products, and the company as a whole, consistently perform at the highest level.”
