Sintavia achieves multiple quality standards and expands team

Sintavia, LLC, a leading metal Additive Manufacturing part manufacturer based in Florida, USA, has announced that in December 2016 the company’s metallurgical laboratory received ISO 17025 accreditation. The announcement followed the news that in November 2016 the company was awarded AS9100 Revision C certification.

ISO 17025 is said to be the highest recognised quality standard in the world for calibration and testing laboratories, whereas AS9100 is a leading global standard for quality systems in the aerospace and defence industries.

“As the first dedicated AM manufacturer to achieve ISO 17025 accreditation Sintavia once again is at the leading edge of the industrial application of AM technology,” stated Doug Hedges, Sintavia’s President and COO. “Serial production is all about serial quality and this achievement speaks to our commitment to the highest standards at every step of AM production. From when the powder arrives at our facility to when the finished parts leave the dock, we maintain complete control over the integrity of the product. Anything less would be a disservice to our customers.”

“AS9100 is recognised as the global standard for quality systems, even beyond the Aerospace & Defense industry,” added Hedges. “For Sintavia to achieve this certification strictly for the metal AM process is quite an achievement and recognition of the company’s outstanding quality system.”

“What a great year it has been for quality improvements,” added Alex Bencomo, Quality Manager at Sintavia. “To get both AS9100 certification and ISO 17025 laboratory accreditation in a single year is a significant accomplishment. As we grow, we are committed to staying focused and continuing to incorporate the highest quality standards in the industry.”

In December the company also announced the expansion of its team with the appointment of Carolyn Allan as Global Marketing Manager. Allan comes with a strong background in marketing for OEMs in critical industries, with nearly a decade of experience at Embraer Executive Jets and Terumo Cardiovascular Systems.

“I am excited to start a new challenge at Sintavia and look forward to working with the team to further communicate the company’s comprehensive AM offering,” stated Allan. “I am fortunate to join such an innovative company that has dedicated itself to the highest standards in the industry.”
