CTL Manufacturing Achieves AS9100 Rev C Certification
Sub-contract manufacturing company CTL Manufacturing has been accredited to the AS9100 Revision C standard, the quality management system for aviation, space and defence sectors.
The Gloucestershire based company provides cable assemblies, wiring harnesses, wiring panels and electromechanical assemblies to commercial, aerospace and defence industries.
The company was audited over a three day period by BSi and was recommended for certification to AS9100 Revision C following no non-conformities identified during the audit.
CTL Manufacturing had previously been accredited to AS9100 Revision B, which they had gained in February 2011. Prior to this, the company held BS EN ISO 9001: 2008.
CTL Manufacturing’s Quality and Engineering Manager, Dave Ruther, led the implementation of the new quality management system. “One of the major differences in the new standard is the approach to process based systems” he said. “Gone are the countless procedures and manuals, instead of these clearly defined processes have been introduced”.
“Also, there is considerably more emphasis on risk management and customer satisfaction”, he added. “We were already focusing on customer satisfaction through measuring on-time delivery, feedback and quality performance. There were, however, a number of processes that needed to be enhanced to focus on the necessary management of risks.”
CTL Manufacturing Operations Director, Carl Stephenson added:
“This accreditation further enhances an already robust quality system and strengthens our position to capitalise on the challenges ahead, especially the targeted new market sectors”.
CTL Manufacturing is part of the Alpha 3 Manufacturing group of companies. Alpha 3 Managing Director, Clifford Friel, added:
“The CTL workforce have once again demonstrated their commitment and ability to adapt to new challenges and to recognise the opportunity which AS9100 Rev C presents to further raise the bar in their common goal of Total Customer Satisfaction”
