GTK’s UK manufacturing facility attains AS9100 certification
December 2, 2015 / Press Release , Company Update
GTK UK Ltd announced that its Basingstoke facility has been AS9100C certified by NQA for the manufacture of cable assemblies and box build.
The AS9100 standard is globally recognised and has been adopted as the standard quality management system for the aerospace, defence and security industries, with major manufacturers in these three sectors requiring AS9100 throughout their supply chain. AS9100C includes all the elements of the ISO 9001:2008 standard but has a multitude of additional requirements to meet the stringent demands of aerospace, defence and security customers, placing rigorous emphasis on end-to-end quality processes, risk management and continuous improvement.
John Morath, Managing Director at GTK, commented, “This accreditation, in addition to those we already have, cements our position as a high-quality, UK-based electronics manufacturer and will enable us to penetrate the aerospace, defence and security markets as part of our overall business growth objectives.”
