We are pleased to announce the certification of our Quality System to AS 9100 Rev C to go along with our existing ISO 9001:2008 status. The decision to add AS 9100 Rev. C was a natural progression for us with our equipment, machining knowledge and accuracy with difficult materials. Our Okuma Palletace / Fastems Flexible Manufacturing System has given us the vehicle to shorten lead times, improve pricing, even on smaller batch sizes, and be better prepared to accommodate schedule and quantity changes for repeat horizontal machining.
We have been fortunate to have been busy through the downturn in the economy over the past several years, but with the improved efficiency and flexibility of the FMS we are pleased to have capacity there to help with meeting the challenges of our existing and our new customers.
We have also recently joined GIDEP to better accommodate the needs of our current and future customers in Industry and Government. It will allow us to share technical information and to have a more robust counterfeit parts knowledge base at our disposal.
