MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio–Materion Corporation, an advanced materials provider, has received AS9100D certification from National Quality Assurance (NQA) for its facilities in Elmore, Ohio; Lorain, Ohio; Elmhurst, Illinois; Reading, Pennsylvania; and Warren, Michigan. Prepared by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG), the AS9100D standard incorporates the ISO 9001 quality management system and adds additional requirements specific to the aviation, space and defense industries.”
To achieve that certification, Materion reorganized some of its business processes to ensure efficient risk management, improve customer focus and enhance supply chain stability. Certifications are issued by third party organizations and are maintained with regularly scheduled compliance audits.
“We worked rigorously to meet this quality standard because we know how important the AS9100D certification is for our aerospace, space and defense customers,” said Clive Grannum, President of Materion Performance Alloys and Composites. “Having the processes in place in order to receive AS9100D certification assures our customers that a supply of our materials is available to meet demand, and it streamlines the buying process.”
