Midwest Prototyping announces AS9100 certification

July 27, 2019

Midwest Prototyping, LLC, a provider of Additive Manufacturing services headquartered in Blue Mounds, Wisconsin, USA, has achieved AS9100 Rev. D certification – the standard of operational excellence required for aviation and aerospace suppliers. The certification means that the company is now able to manufacture flight-ready components on all its AM technologies.

According to Midwest Prototyping, the AS9100 Rev. D certification builds onto its ISO 9001:2015 certified Quality Management System. In 2017, the company states that it became the first independent Additive Manufacturing service bureau to achieve the ISO 9001:2015 Standard, the most up-to-date version of the standard. 

Steve Grundahl, president and founder of Midwest Prototyping, stated, “By achieving the AS9100 certification, we’ve opened up a new avenue for digital manufacturing – we can provide our technologies and expertise directly to aviation and aerospace companies of all sizes. We see this certification as a critical step forward to developing true digital manufacturing solutions for our customers.”

Nate Schumacher, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Midwest Prototyping, who oversaw both the AS9100 Rev. D and ISO 9001:2015 implementations, commented, “The AS9100D certification process examines our entire operation. From the moment we quote a project or purchase raw material, to the finished product and the way we ship an order, our customers can have even more confidence in the quality of our work.”

Schumacher continued, “I’m extremely proud of our team and their efforts to bring our organisation to the next level and the benefits this programme brings to both Midwest Prototyping and our customers.”
