Composites One distribution center and truck

Composites One announced today that EAGLE Registrations Inc., a third-party certification body who audits businesses to meet international standards, awarded several Composites One LLC locations the AS9120 RevB Multi-Site Certification, which includes the ISO9001:2015 Standard.  Those locations include Lenexa, Kansas; Monessen, Pennsylvania; Rock Hill, South Carolina; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Santa Fe Springs, California.  The Composites One corporate headquarters in Arlington Heights, Illinois, also received certification as a support location. The assessment was performed in accordance with the requirements of AS9014/1:2012.  EAGLE Registrations is accredited under the aerospace Registrar Management Program.

The Composites One/BMB Solutions Composites location in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, also received the AS9120 Rev B certification using a local accredited registrar.

AS9120 is an aviation, space and defense quality standard based on the ISO 9001 quality management system and supported by the International Aerospace Quality Group. The standards are published by the ANAB (ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board) International Organization of Standards and require third party independent confirmation of conformance to the standards. The AS9120 recognizes Composites One as a compliant, reliable and preferred supplier to the Aerospace Industry.  The AS9120 designation puts Composites One in a unique position to service aerospace and advanced composites customers who require this certification. Previously, Composites One was only certified at its Monessen, Pennsylvania, location. This new designation now brings the total to five U.S. distribution locations, along with one in Canada, with more to come in the future.

“This is a major accomplishment for the organization and credit goes to those who led this effort,” said Leon Garoufalis, President & COO of Composites One.  “Our Distribution Center and Corporate Teams put in a great deal of extra work to make this happen – on time and with no major non-conformities identified during the audit.”
