United Gear & Machine Announces AS9100 & ISO 9001 Certification

United Gear and Machine is proud to announce the achievement of AS9100 Rev C and ISO9001:2008 Certification for its Suffield, Connecticut location.

“United Gear is very proud to have achieved this dual certification. I feel it’s a reflection of all of the quality work that United Gear has been producing for the past 61 years,” said William J Malec, President and owner. “Our AS9100 and ISO9001 certifications only serve to underscore what I’ve always known is true at United Gear; we manufacture only the highest quality and most precise gears and splines for our customers.

AS9100 is the internationally recognized Quality Management System standard specific to the aerospace, aviation and defense industries. This standard is strongly supported and adhered to by major aerospace OEMs and is increasingly being required by vendors within the supply chain. AS9100 is managed by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) and based on the ISO 9001:2008 quality management global standard that exemplifies quality and trust.  It provides 80 additional requirements and 18 amplifications specific to aerospace business operations.

Both of these certifications highlight United Gear’s commitment to meeting and exceeding the increasingly stringent industry requirements for aerospace related products, and assures our manufacturing processes consistently meet or exceed the requirements and expectations of customer’s presenting the most challenging applications.

Our dual certification strengthens United Gear’s competitive position and standardizes quality, reliability and safety processes throughout the entire organization. To qualify for both standards, an organization must demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products that meet applicable regulatory requirements and satisfy customer needs.

“The entire team at United Gear was committed to seeing this standard met and certification achieved,” said Kurt Malec, Quality Manager. “I am proud of how we all came together as a company and not only embraced the standard, but also fully committed to maintaining it for years to come.”
