NSF-ISR recognizes plants’ manufacturing systems for quality conformance.
Chem-Trend, a global leader in the development and production of high-performance release agents and casting lubricants, has achieved the highest global certificate of registration for its quality management systems at two manufacturing facilities in Howell.
The NSF-ISR recognized Chem-Trend’s Grand River and McPherson Park plants for conforming to the AS9100 requirements for aviation standards. This certificate of registration validates the plants’ quality management programs.
“By receiving this certificate of registration at two of our locations, Chem-Trend is demonstrating its continued commitment to the international standard for the aerospace industry,” said Devanir Moraes, Chem-Trend president and CEO. “Chem-Trend has a long-standing history of placing a significant priority on quality manufacturing processes. This certificate acknowledges that our quality management system adheres to rigorous global scrutiny.”
AS9100 is a widely adopted and standardized quality management system developed by the International Aerospace Quality Group. It encompasses ISO 9000, with additional requirements for quality and safety specific to aerospace. Manufacturers and suppliers in the aircraft and aerospace industries embrace AS9100 as a global standard and a critical tool for improving quality and on-time delivery within their supply chain. Most companies in the aerospace industry endorse or require certification to AS9100 as a condition of doing business.
“NSF-ISR certification provides all stakeholders assurance that a manufacturer’s quality management system complies with the technical requirements of the referenced standard,” said Moraes. “This is especially critical now, as the industry becomes even more global and manufacturers face the challenge of purchasing products from suppliers throughout the world.”
NSF International Strategic Registrations (NSF-ISR) is a global certification body delivering expert support through a worldwide audit and service staff. It is the leading global provider of public health and safety-based risk-management solutions.
