WICHITA, Kan., June, 24, 2013 – Greenwich AeroGroup announced today that Atlantic Aero in Greensboro, N.C., and Western Aircraft in Boise, Idaho, have both received AS9110 quality system certifications. Now all three Greenwich AeroGroup maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) service centers are AS certified.
The internationally recognized AS9110 Standard focuses on MRO services and is an offshoot of the AS9100 Standard that addresses the aviation industry.
“We are extremely pleased with these achievements,” said Senior Vice President of Greenwich AeroGroup Jeff Mihalic. “With these certifications, now all of our MRO and manufacturing operations are AS9100 or AS9110 certified. This means that our quality systems and procedures meet the highest standards of the original equipment manufacturers and government customers.”
Greenwich’s Summit Aviation in Middletown, Del., was previously AS9100 certified. Summit provides MRO services for fixed and rotorwing operators and is also a heavy provider of modification and specialized mission services for many government entities. Summit and Atlantic Aero’s manufacturing operations were already certified in compliance with AS9100.
Company strengths noted during the recent Atlantic Aero and Western Aircraftaudits included the concentration of transformational leadership, high levels of customer satisfaction, an effective and cohesive management team and the overall skill and motivation of the workforce.
“These certifications show our commitment to building a strong foundation of systems and procedures that ensure quality service to our customers each and every day,” said President and CEO of Greenwich AeroGroup Jim Ziegler. “Ensuring our customers receive the best quality products and services available is our highest priority.”
