Elite Plastics was audited by TUV Reinland whom approves the AS9100C certificatiGM Nameplate announced today that their Oregon division, Elite Plastics, now meets the requirements of AS9100C.   

Elite Plastics was audited by TUV Reinland of North America, whom approved the certification on December 11, 2012.  It states that Elite Plastics has established and applies a quality management system for the manufacture of complex plastics and value added assemblies. 

Elite Plastics has worked to meet all compliance requirements in their organizational structure, documentation, training, quality systems, technology control plans and procedures.  A commitment to compliance ensures that Elite Plastics has the knowledge, ability and regulatory oversight to properly manage aerospace programs.

AS9100C is the quality management systems standard for the aerospace industry and it compliments others held by Elite Plastics including ISO 9100:2008 certification and ITAR compliance.

“We began the process to become AS9100C certified a year ago because we saw an opportunity to better serve the aerospace industry and improve our manufacturing system,” stated Dan Thurmond, president of the Oregon Division.  “We already observe stringent quality standards because we supply highly regulated industries such as medical and automotive.  AS9100C certification for the aerospace industry was a natural next step. It demonstrates our commitment to quality.” 

 “Our customers in aerospace looked to expand the value of GM Nameplate in their supply chain by partnering with GMN as an injection molder,” said Carlo Mears, Vice President of GMN Aerospace, GM Nameplate’s Aerospace group.  “The obvious first goal was AS 9100C. We are so proud of our whole team to achieve certification so quickly. The aerospace industry now has access to the one of the best vertically integrated plastic injection molders.”
