Solar Atmospheres Southeast of Greenville, S.C., successfully completed AS9100/ISO 9001:2008 certification, the premium quality system standard for companies operating in the aerospace industry. The AS9100 quality standard was established in 1999 from the desire of leading businesses and organizations in the aerospace and defense industries to identify quality suppliers. AS9100 encompasses the entire current version of ISO 9001 as well as specific requirements addressing well-known problems related to the aerospace sector.
Solar Atmospheres Southeast’s certification is the culmination of a five-month effort that was fast-tracked at the request of several current and prospective customers. With this assessment completed, all of Solar Atmospheres’ commercial vacuum heat-treating and brazing facilities are now AS9100 registered.
