CMM Optic Achieves Multi-Site AS9100 Quality Management Certification From NSF International Strategic Registrations (NSF-ISR)
AS9100 certification for aviation, space and defense organizations demonstrates CMM Optic’s commitment to aerospace industry expectations
TROY, MICHIGAN, September 21, 2021 – CMM Optic has achieved AS9100 aerospace management systems certification from NSF-ISR, an NSF International company. This Certification covers its Troy facility as well as the Rochester Hills facility acquired last Summer. While both locations had prior independent certifications, CMM Optic has achieved the milestone of a multi-site certification for the design and manufacture of Precision Optics, Structures, and Optical-Mechanical-Electrical assemblies.
CMM Optic is particularly excited to announce the addition of design to its certification scope, applicable to the Rochester Hills location.
The AS9100 standard is based on ISO 9001 but encompasses additional requirements specific to the unique needs of aerospace industry prime organizations and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). These manufacturers/OEMs and their global supply base often endorse or require certification as an assurance that certain base principles have been implemented.
The standard also incorporates requirements of relevant industry stakeholders (e.g. product safety awareness, counterfeit controls, risk-based thinking, process validation, etc.). In addition, it is compatible with other management systems, such as ISO 14001).
Another unique feature of this standard is its focus on performance through a combination of risk-based thinking, process-defined metric performance and an approach to continual improvement, along with the employment of the “plan-do-check-act” cycle at all levels in the organization.
“Our entire organization worked to attain this multi-site designation and we are pleased to be able to offer this important certification to our customer base as a part of our ongoing commitment to quality and precision,” stated Kevin McMahon, President.
