Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing (KAM), Statesville, North Carolina, USA, has achieved industry certifications ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100D, which set strict quality standards and guidelines in the aerospace and defence industries. With the certifications in place, KAM will be able to further diversify into these sectors as well as others such as automotive and transportation.

“When we started the business, we knew one day we would need to have these essential certifications under our belt to do the level of work envisioned with KAM,” stated Brad Keselowski, KAM’s founder and CEO. “I am so proud of the entire KAM team for getting this accomplished in such a short amount of time. It’s truly impressive.”

In addition to the new certifications, the company continues to expand its installed range of machines and equipment, and has in the past quarter installed four additional EOS Additive Manufacturing systems, as well as a vacuum furnace and a number of other manufacturing systems and technology for both additive and conventional manufacturing. 

Jim Thompson, KAM’s Director of Operations, commented, “These additional investments we have coming down the pipeline really hammer home the power and flexibility of our vertical business model. Combined with our in-house metallurgical laboratory, metrology, digital radiography and hybrid manufacturing capabilities, we have a wide spectrum of resources available to service our customers’ needs.”
