On June 27, GM Nameplate Seattle’s quality management system achieved AS9100C certification. GM Nameplate supports the aerospace industry under the brand name GMN Aerospace and the new certification provides quality system updates and improvements, specifically focused on the aerospace industry.

Prior to AS9100C, GM Nameplate Seattle has been AS9100B certified since 2007. As an aerospace supplier for nearly 50 years, GM Nameplate places a high importance on meeting all customer quality standards, regardless of their industry. GMN’s certified quality management system verifies the organization’s commitment to producing the highest quality products, and continually improving processes.

“Revision C to AS9100 is the most intensive we have ever met. The focus of AS9100 has moved to the effectiveness of a quality management system,” said Martin Espinola, quality director at GM Nameplate’s Washington division.

The revisions have an increased focus on risk management and purchasing controls to help ensure on-time and on-quality deliveries. AS9100C Certified Management systems are focused on the aviation, space, and defense industries.

“GM Nameplate continues to target perfection with honest and earnest commitment to performing our duties to the best of our abilities and always looking at how we are not only meeting, but exceeding our customer’s expectations,” said Martin Espinola.
