Seminole, FL—Salvo Defense, the engineering services division 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 application specific safety and quality criteria. In addition to Salvo Defense, the Seminole location houses development, manufacturing, assembly, and test operations for other Salvo Technologies business units, including Salvo Coatings, Salvo Electro Optics (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 Eric Mackey, quality manager, Salvo Technologies. “To compete effectively as a vertically integrated franchise, our organization as a whole needs to operate at the highest standards of quality.” Salvo Defense functions as the design and engineering arm of Salvo Technologies, leveraging the other divisions to supply components, assembly services, and completed products. AS9100 registration allows them to be confident that they are delivering customers products that meet the industry’s most rigorous quality standards, top to bottom. NQA performed the final audits in early 2015. Salvo Technologies also maintains International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) compliance.
