Sintavia becomes one of the first aerospace manufacturing companies to achieve the latest AS9100 standard

November 3, 2017

Sintavia, LLC, Davie, Florida, USA, has received AS9100 Revision D certification, becoming one of the first aerospace manufacturing companies to achieve the latest AS9100 standard. By meeting these new requirements, Sintavia reports it will improve its quality system by including, among other things, risk-based thinking and maintaining organizational knowledge.

“New requirements were added to the standard,” stated Doug Hedges, Sintavia’s President and COO. “Some of these requirements we have always done since the beginning because they are simply good business practices. Now we are one of only a handful of aerospace companies in the world that has the new Revision D certification.”

The new AS9100 wording lends itself towards methods for institutionalising and maintaining critical organisational knowledge, for which Sintavia uses Granta software. In addition to assessing risk at contract review or quoting, Sintavia also assesses process risk, corporate risk and opportunities within every process in the company.

“Although passing the audit with zero findings was a rewarding accomplishment, we will strive for continuous improvement,” added Alex Bencomo, Sintavia’s Quality Manager, “It’s important that we stay focused on remaining the quality leader in the world of metal Additive Manufacturing.”
