Haigh-Farr Announces Successful AS9100C Certification
Haigh-Farr, a Business Unit within the Vitec Group and a world leader in the simulation, design, development, manufacture and test of integrated antennas for simple and sophisticated aerospace applications, is pleased to announce its certification to the quality management standards of AS9100C. The certification was issued for the company’s design, manufacture and testing of antennas and support equipment, which are used primarily in the domestic and international aerospace industries.
“While Haigh-Farr was already ISO 9001:2008 certified, meeting the specialized aerospace management requirements of AS9100C brings us to a new level of service and compatibility within this market,” says David Farr, CEO of Haigh-Farr. “We pride ourselves on producing exceptional products that are innovative, rugged and reliable. The rigorous AS9100C certification is a welcome next step that continues our legacy.”
AS9100C supplements the more general ISO 9001 manufacturing standard by offering additional quality management and reporting requirements unique to the aerospace industry. Originally conceived by major aerospace manufacturers and standards organizations, AS9100 represents a worldwide cooperative effort, under the International Aerospace Quality Group, to bring all aerospace production under one quality-management umbrella.
The AS9100C certification was issued to Haigh-Farr in February, 2014.
