Successful ISO9001/AS9100 Audit Validates Our Commitment to Quality

HighTech Finishing has successfully completed our annual ISO9001/AS9100 surveillance audit. We completed the audit with zero non-conformities, validating our commitment to quality control for aviation interior plating.

Due to this year’s pandemic, the week-long audit was performed virtually, which incorporated video conferencing with external auditors, digital information exchanges, and conversations with our staff. Our quality team and other departments came together to meet every requirement to satisfy the audit.

The end result was confirmation that our Quality Management System (QMS) meets all ISO9001 and AS9100 requirements and that our team was able to present and demonstrate to the auditor that our QMS is fully implemented.

Quality Control Embedded in Our Plating Process

Quality control (QC) comes naturally to our company, which is why our team was able to pull together appropriate records in a timely fashion to satisfy the audit.

It shows that no matter the unique circumstances related to this year’s pandemic or the unique nature of a virtual audit, our team is always ready to validate our commitment to meet customer expectations.

We believe our success is due to quality being embedded in everything we do. For example, our 50-step decorative plating process includes 17 QC checkpoints to ensure the highest degree of excellence in the production of aviation interior parts.

Our ISO9001/AS9100 certified process ensures consistency in delivering superior finishes for every part, every time. This is the expectation we have set for our customers and we strive to meet that expectation for each order.

Continuing to Elevate Quality in Aviation Interior Plating

Earlier this year, we announced that one of our customers, Rosen Aviation, named us their Supplier Quality Award winner.

The award was given to our company in recognition of 100 percent quality parts and 100 percent on-time delivery for every month in 2019. In total for the year, we delivered 174 parts with no defects and no delays.

The recognition from Rosen and our company’s successful completion of the annual ISO9001/AS9100 audit are two recent examples of how we continue to lead the industry in aviation interior plating.

We believe in our team, our capabilities, and our Quality Management System as we continue to deliver the highest-quality parts to aviation customers. Contact us today to discuss how we can support your aviation interior needs. We can be reached toll-free at 800-949-0124 or by email at
