Seminole, FL—Salvo Coatings, a member of the Salvo Technologies Inc. group of companies, is pleased to announce that its Seminole, Florida facility is now AS9100 Registered. Maintained by SAE International, AS9100 is a key quality management standard for the aerospace industry. AS9100 encompasses the ISO 9001 standard, augmented by other applicationspecific safety and quality criteria. In addition to Salvo Coatings, the Seminole location houses development, manufacturing, assembly, and test operations for other Salvo Technologies business units, including Salvo Defense, Salvo ElectroOptics (Salvo EO), and 4D Tactical. 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. “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 Patrick Kelly, vice president of technology 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.” “Working within the AS9100 framework, we can assure both internal and external customers that our coatings will not just meet but exceed their expectations,” said Eric Mackey, quality manager at Salvo Technologies. “When we do our job, we free them to focus on the engineering aspects of their system where they bring the most value.” NQA performed the final audits in early 2015. Salvo Technologies also maintains International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) compliance.
