“It reflects our commitment to provide quality products and services that meet the latest industry standards for our growing customer base”

“The certification covers our engineering and manufacturing processes as well as our Component Repair & Overhaul services,” noted Jeff Becker, Director of Quality Control for AMES. “It reflects our commitment to provide quality products and services that meet the latest industry standards for our growing customer base,” Becker added.

AMES’ President, Brady Templeton, observed that “AS9100 certification opens the door for new opportunities,” noting that “many aerospace manufacturers and suppliers worldwide require compliance and registration to AS9100 as a condition of doing business with them.”

AMES completed the certification process in a very aggressive 90-day period, culminating in a successful audit by an external agency. “That’s two to three times faster than usual,” noted Becker, “and largely due to our strong quality legacy and the hard work of our certification team.” AS9100 certification demonstrates AMES’ commitment to provide best-value solutions and comprehensive MRO services to our customers.
