Three Simrit aerospace sealing facilities earn AS9100 Revision C certification

Simrit, the general sealing products business of Freudenberg Sealing Technologies, today announced that three of its facilities – Ashland, N.H., Santa Ana, Calif. and Tillsonburg, Ontario, Canada – have been certified to the AS9100 Revision C quality management system (QMS) aerospace industry standard. This latest revision builds on the elements of the AS9100B standard and places an added focus on the processes a company employs to conduct business in accordance with the certification's requirements.

The original AS9100 standard was designed to meet the stringent, complex and unique demands of the commercial and defense aerospace industries. Earning the certification validates an organization's commitment to quality, and provides a comprehensive QMS focused on the areas that directly impact product safety and reliability. The latest revision evaluates a process, such as a contract review, based on customer-related processes, design and development, record retention, risk management, etc.

"Simrit's prompt achievement of the updated AS9100 Revision C certification is a testament to our diligence and unwavering commitment to product and process quality," said David R. Monaco, president, Simrit Americas and senior vice president, Simrit Global. "The aerospace industry requires precise practices and processes, and Simrit has proven yet again that it is committed to achieving and maintaining the proper certifications on behalf of our customers."

The Ashland facility, with more than 30 years of experience, designs and manufactures low to medium-volume radial shaft seals and aerospace radial shaft seals. The plant serves a variety of markets and is also responsible for manufacturing mechanical face seals.

The Santa Ana plant has more than 30 years of experience in the manufacturingof aerospace O-rings, plate seals and molded shapes. The facility is Nadcap-approved for critical aerospace applications and is the first O-ring plant in the world to receive this prestigious certification. Additionally, it houses an American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) certifiedlaboratory and produces nitrile, ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), silicone, fluorosilicone, fluorocarbon and per fluorinated elastomeric components.

The Nadcap-approved Tillsonburg plant is one of the most experienced facilities in the aerospace industry. It designs and manufactures aerodynamic seals and sealing products, including engine seals, thrust reverser seals, and door and window seals, for commercial aircraft and jet engines. The facility was recently named a United Technologies Corp. Supplier Gold Award winner for three consecutive years (2009 – 2011).

"With more than 100 years of combined experience in manufacturing aerospace-related sealing products, our Ashland, Santa Ana and Tillsonburg facilities offer customers a dependable industry partner," said Vinay Nilkanth, vice president global sales aerospace, Simrit.
