UltraSource, Inc. (USI), manufacturer of custom ceramic thin film proudly announcestheir achievement of AS9100 Rev C Certification. AS9100 is an internationally recognized quality management system standard specific to aerospace, aviation and defense industries.

“Our new AS9100 certification will not only benefit our aerospace and defense customers but all of our customers. The requirements for AS9100 bring an intense focus on quality and continuous improvement – something that all employees at UltraSource are committed to,” stated Michael Casper, president & CEO of UltraSource. “AS9100 was the next logical step in improving our quality management system and growing our business.”

Process engineering & quality manager, Angel Rodriguez, believes that “our AS9100 Certification is not an end point but more of the starting point of our mission to continually improve our quality system, which will result in higher yields, lower cost, and improved cycle times.”

About a year ago, USI began the process of upgrading our quality management system from ISO 9001:2008 Certification to AS9100. Kelly Millard, USI’s AS9100 management representative, indicated that “the journey, however difficult, has been a worthwhile one. It challenges you to have a laser-sharp customer focus, exercising tight supplier controls, and managing risk for a successful and profitable business. As an approved AS9100 Supplier, UltraSource will be listed in the OASIS database, a potential source of new business. This certification is a testimonial to USI’s excellence.”

AS9100 replaces AS9000 and fully incorporates the entirety of the current version of ISO 9000, while adding additional requirements relating to quality and safety. Major aerospace manufacturers worldwide require registration to AS9100 as a condition for doing business with them.
