GGB Bearing Technology, a global leader in high performance bearing solutions, has been notified that its Suzhou, China, manufacturing plant passed its audit to receive AS9100D certification from TUV Rheinland (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. The Suzhou facility opened in May 2016, and was able to achieve certification in just over one year.
AS9100D certification is a quality management standard for the aviation, space and defense industries and is based on the ISO 9001:2008 management standard. Major aerospace manufacturers and suppliers worldwide require AS9100D compliance in order to do business with them.
AS9100D requires that compliant companies establish, implement, maintain, develop, improve on and document a quality management system to ensure products adhere to standardized safety and quality guidelines. Additionally, there are management, resource, realization and remedial requirements. For the complete list of requirements, visit standards.sae.org/as9100.
“GGB’s focus on safety and quality helped make it possible to receive AS9100D compliance quickly and efficiently,” said GGB Aerospace Strategic Account Manager Leandre Bertagnolio. “We make it our goal to meet and exceed product and process standards, and this new certification will work to further strengthen our position as a major manufacturer in the aerospace industry.”
This is the second GGB manufacturing facility to receive the AS9100 certification. GGB’s Thorofare, N.J., manufacturing facility is also certified for many years.
