Seminole, FL—4D Tactical, a strategic member of the Salvo Technologies Inc. group of companies, is pleased to announce that its Seminole, Florida facility is now AS9100 Registered. 4D Tactical produces innovative personal protective equipment for a variety of markets, including law enforcement, defense, medical, industrial, and professional athletics.
“At 4D Tactical, we recognize that lives can depend upon the performance of our equipment,” said Maria Iburg, production manager at 4D Tactical. “Complying with quality best practices as outlined in AS9100 helps us to ensure that our products consistently deliver the protection our customers expect.” Maintained by SAE International, AS9100 is a key quality management standard for the aerospace industry. It includes the ISO 9001 standard, but goes a step further with other application specific safety and quality criteria.
“Although we have previously demonstrated ISO 9001 compliance in our production facility, we recognize that in today’s demanding marketplace, that alone is not enough,” said Eric Mackey, quality manager at Salvo Technologies. “To compete effectively as a vertically integrated franchise, our organization as a whole needs to operate at the highest standards of quality.”
In addition to 4D Tactical, the Seminole location houses development, manufacturing, assembly, and test operations for other Salvo Technologies business units, including Salvo Coatings, Salvo Defense, and Salvo Electro Optics (Salvo EO). The organizations achieved compliance and will maintain it in cooperation with Salvo EO, which has been AS9100 registered at a previous location. Registration affirms that processes follow specified quality management best practices to ensure that products manufactured at the location will meet or exceed customer expectations.
NQA performed the final audits in early 2015. Salvo Technologies also maintains International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) compliance.
