Wheelabrator Plus is pleased to have continued its important certification AS / EN 9100 aerospace quality management system accreditation to perform sub contract finishing of customer parts at its Birmingham site.
First achieving this high-status endorsement in 2009, Wheelabrator was audited against the additional requirements in AS/EN 9100 Rev C in February 2012, and again qualified with an impressive 100% score, meaning no non-conformances were identified and top marks were attained.
AS 9100 is a widely adopted and standardised quality management system for the aerospace industry. This approval recognises the people, procedures and processes the Birmingham site has implemented to consistently deliver products that meet and exceed the expectations of clients in the aerospace industry.
Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA), the certification body that carried out the assessment, identified Wheelabrator’s as a extremely well run business with an excellent commitment by all employees to quality and continual improvement.
Paul Upton, quality manager of Wheelabrator Group, continues to lead the group’s campaign and regularly attended task group meetings with experts involved in maintaining the scheme. Paul commented: "This latest audit result demonstrates the excellent attitude of our personnel and means our customers can be confident with Wheelabrator’s total commitment to quality products and service. Maintaining a healthy AS 9100 quality management system is a key milestones of our strategic plan to maintain and grow a successful aerospace customer portfolio, alongside motorsport, automotive and other adjacent market clients."

The endorsement of our equipment and processes is an added reassurance of the exceptional service we provide."
