Hetech is now AS9100 accredited
- AS9100 accreditation is an aerospace standard
- The standard works to improve quality, cost, and delivery performance
We are proud to share that we have recently received our AS9100 accreditation. The AS9100 accreditation is an aerospace standard that was released by the International Aerospace Quality Group, the accreditation demonstrates our ability to consistently provide products that meet customer and regulatory requirements for Aviation, Space and Defence Organisations. The standard works to improve quality, cost, and delivery performance.
Hetech’s Managing Director, Mark Steiner said of the new certification, “The achievement of AS9100 will enable Hetech to offer its design and manufacturing services to a range of new customers in various markets. The traceability aspect of the standard combined with the introduction of a new ERP system will enhance the level of service to all our customers. This is especially important in the current situation where parts are hard to find or on very long lead times. It will also help us maintain and exceed our current excellence in quality and customer service.”

Alan Grant, Hetech’s Quality Manager who worked closely on the accreditation process said, ‘We had a very positive experience with our certification body and lead auditor. Engaging a specialist consultant to assist in gap analysis as well as implementation greatly contributed to our success. Hetech had already adopted many of the core principles of AS9100 in our quality system (ISO) prior to the accreditation process, this has added to the maturity of our AQMS. Our employee’s commitment, dedication, professionalism and pride in doing work for the aerospace-defence industry is why we were so successful in attaining the accreditation.’
