Clinkenbeard, Rockford, Ill., an M2M Group Company and global rapid prototyping, casting and machining provider, has again completed the requirements necessary to achieve AS9100C certification. It is the newest and highest Quality Management System (QMS) standard for the aerospace and defense industries.
The company first achieved AS9100B certification in July, 2006, and was recertified in April 2014. It has achieved recertification for AS9100 every three years, as required, since 2006. In 2009, AS9100 was revised to AS9100C to improve existing requirements for quality. Clinkenbeard was certified to AS9100C in April 2012.
The recertification followed a companywide outside audit performed by Det Norske Veritas Certification, (DNV), Inc., Katy, Texas. Clinkenbeard accomplished the audit with zero findings, the highest level of quality.
