Creative Composites receives AS9100C registration

After earning ISO9001:2008 certification in 2010, Rapid River, Mich.-based Creative Composites has received is AS9100C accreditation.

Advanced composite structures developer and manufacturer Creative Composites Inc. (Rapid River, Mich., USA) reported on Jan. 5 that it has received AS9100C accreditation after its quality and production systems were audited by American Systems Registrar (Wyoming, Mich., USA). 

“We received our ISO9001:2008 certification in the fall of 2010, and right away we started looking to the next level,” says Brad McPhee, president of Creative Composites. “We knew we needed to continually improve our systems, and many potential customers were requiring the AS9100 registration just to be considered as a potential supplier. We identified what it would take and found that our operations were already meeting many of the additional criteria. After reviewing the timing and resource needs, in April of 2012 we scheduled our registration stage 1 audit for October, giving us seven months to get our systems and documentation in place.”

Creative also provides 5-axis CNC machining and waterjet cutting services, along with MIG- and TIG-welding, bonding, assembly and painting services.
