In December 2012, Elite Plastics received its AS9100C Quality System certification. Last month, Elite Plastics successfully underwent its first surveillance audit since receiving certification. AS9100 certification verifies that our Quality Management Systems (QMS) meets the requirements of the international quality standard established for the Aerospace industry.

AS9100C is based on ISO 9001:2008; the international quality system certification which is held by all of GM Nameplate’s US divisions and is recognized worldwide. AS9100C has additional requirements for customers specifically in the Aerospace industry. However, Elite Plastics applies the higher quality requirements of AS9100 to all our customers across all the industries we serve.

“We are pleased to have succeeded in our first surveillance audit since attaining AS9100C certification last year,” says GMN’s Corporate Quality Director, Martin Espinola. “We sought AS9100 certification for our plastics division, [Elite Plastics,] in order to better serve our long time aerospace customers.”

In addition to AS9100C quality system certification, Elite Plastics’ quality management system is ISO 9001:2008 certified and ITAR compliant. To learn more about all of our quality system and manufacturing certification’s please visit the resources section of the GM Nameplate website.
