Rock West Composites is pleased to announce that its quality system has been certified this month to conform to ISO 9001:2008 with AS9100C as assessed by EAGLE Registrations Inc. The dual certification allows for flexibility in the implementation of either quality standard—including AS9100C frequently demanded by the Aerospace and Defense industry—enabling the company to provide the most cost effective pricing for a specific program.

By achieving this certification, we’ve demonstrated to our customers we are taking every step necessary to assure high quality along with efficiency in our approach to our products and processes.

Rock West Composites (RWC) has just been certified in February 2015 as conforming to the standards for ISO 9001:2008 with AS9100C by EAGLE Registrations Inc. under Certificate No. 5081. RWC is committed to achieving operational excellence in order to meet or exceed customer requirements and expectations through adherence to their Quality Management System and continual improvement of their products, processes, services, and communication.

Certification to AS9100C requires developing, implementing and maintaining a more stringent Quality Management System than required for ISO 9001:2008 alone. Being certified to both ISO9001:2008 and AS9100C means that RWC has flexibility regarding the level of Quality Management System implemented for each project. Within the core requirements of each standard, RWC can work to meet exact quality requirements without burdening the cost structure of the program with specifications that may be unnecessary for the application. This allows the company to provide the most cost effective solution for the customer’s project.

The scope of registration for Rock West Composites includes design, manufacturing, and sales. This means that the Quality Management System applies to any stage of customer projects, from initial development through production. “Our customers can ‘hop on’ at any point along the design cycle and be confident that Rock West Composites will meet the requirements of their project,” said Dave Erickson, General Manager of RWC. “By achieving this certification, we’ve demonstrated to our customers we are taking every step necessary to assure high quality along with efficiency in our approach to our products and processes.”
