In the intricate and demanding realms of Aerospace, Space, and Defence (ASD) sectors, precision and reliability are not mere attributes, but prerequisites. In this high-stakes industry, where every component plays a pivotal role in ensuring safety and performance, adherence to stringent quality standards is non-negotiable. At the forefront of this assurance is the AS9100 rev D standard, an industry-recognised benchmark that has become the bedrock of quality assurance in these critical sectors.
For nearly two decades, Electropak Ltd has proudly held this esteemed accreditation, a testament to our unwavering dedication to meeting and exceeding the exacting standards set by the aerospace industry.
One of the primary reasons AS9100 rev D is deemed essential lies in its ability to convey a business’ adherence to the necessary levels of conformance and risk management. Tier 1 Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in the aerospace sector, the industry giants steering innovation and progress, mandate AS9100 approval for their suppliers. This requirement is not arbitrary; it is a deliberate strategy to ensure that every link in the supply chain meets the rigorous standards necessary for the production of components that can withstand the demands of aerospace, space, and defence applications.
Electropak’s annual audits, a mandatory facet of maintaining AS9100 approval, aren’t just procedural checkmarks; they’re gateways to continuous improvement. These audits encompass various facets of the business, from product quality and risk management to on-time delivery and staff skills matrix. The result is not just compliance, but a constant evolution towards operational excellence.
The ripple effects of AS9100 rev D approval are evident in Electropak’s success story. The approval has served as a springboard, propelling us into new markets and prestigious projects. Recently selected as a supplier for Busbars and other components in the Ariane 6 European Space Agency program, Electropak’s entry into this groundbreaking initiative was facilitated by the AS9100 rev D certification. This achievement is a testament to the doors that open when a business adheres to the highest quality standards, and in the aerospace industry, AS9100 rev D is the gold standard.
In a landscape where innovation and safety are non-negotiable, AS9100 rev D is not just a certification; it is a commitment to excellence, a bridge to new opportunities, and a safeguard against compromise. Electropak Ltd’s journey, marked by nearly two decades of AS9100 rev D approval, stands as a testament to the enduring value of this standard in shaping the future of aerospace, space, and defence technologies.
