Roscomac, the precision CNC machining and engineering company, is proud to announce the achievement of AS9100 (BS EN 9100) quality management standard for the aerospace sector.
In an industry where quality control is a central requirement, Roscomac’s success has been shaped with 12 months of intense procedural, process and cultural change. Aerospace Standards are based on ISO 9001 and developed by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG). They address international consistency and specific regulatory, safety and reliability requirements demanded by aerospace.
They also cover the complete spectrum of organisations working within the aerospace sector, from design and manufacture to maintenance organizations and stockist distributors. As such, AS 9100 (BS EN 9100) is used and supported by all leading aerospace companies and without it there can be no engagement on major projects and programmes. From Roscomac’s standpoint, this achievement has unlocked new and previously untapped markets.
Joe Martello, Rocomac’s Managing Director commented, “AS9100 has completely transformed our business from top to bottom. It sets the agenda. It gives us a progressive plan for continuous improvement. But the really great thing is that we’re all in it together! Quality culture is an attitude and set of values, and we’re all fully committed to that!”
Inside Roscomac, Quality and Project Manager Colin Alexander is the day-to-day champion. He fully understands that quality processes have to be understood, meaningful and valued. The results must be obvious to everyone in the business and communication plays a central role in this. “From where I stand, using AS9100 means there is no such thing as failure, so it’s my job to get everyone to believe that. When things go wrong the process encourages us to course correct; to learn, adapt and improve, and that’s been massive for our internal culture.”
With multiple clients and component projects completed for the Aerospace industry the benefits of the accreditation are clear.
Today, Roscomac is living and breathing the new standard. Everyone in the company shares the same goals and ideals; to do the very best they possibly can for the good of the company, its customers and new aerospace markets.
