T.I. Announced as one of the First 20% of Aerospace Suppliers Globally to Achieve AS9100:2009 Revision C.
November 27th, 2011, Rockaway, NJ.
Titanium Industries (T.I.), the global leader in distribution of high performance metal, has announced this year’s registration to AS9100:2009 Revision C Registration (Rev.C) through it’s registrar, NSF International Strategic Registrations – an achievement currently realized by less than 20% of aerospace suppliers globally.
AS9100 is a widely adopted and standardized Quality Management System for the Aerospace Industry. This International Standard specifies requirements for a Quality Management System where an organization: a) needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and b) aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system, and (c) the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
Over the last year, T.I. evaluated its Quality Management System practices, policies, and procedures and its ability to meet these additional requirements which would win them accreditation across the company’s 16 world wide locations. The benefits realized throughout this process continue to include;
– Improvement in understanding, meeting and integrating T.I. OEM Customer and approved OEM Supplier requirements.
– Cost savings associated with more consistent verification methods and fewer verification audits.
– Cost reduction in supplier oversight and improvement in supplier performance.
– Improvement in quality and on-time delivery within the T.I. supply chain.
– Improved process performance and effectiveness, reducing scrap and customer returns.
– Increased effectiveness of Corrective Actions and root cause analysis.
Greg Himstead, Market Manager, T.I.Aerospace said “This significant proactive achievement is further evidence of T.I.’s commitment to support the global airframe and engine supply chains that we service around the world. AS9100 Rev.
