In keeping with our mission to become the recognized worldwide leader for foil gauge expanded metal and thin film expanded polymers, Dexmet Corporation is proud to announce that we have received AS9100:D and ISO 9001:2015 Certification for the aviation, aerospace, and defense industries. The company subscribes to the standard’s requisite features, including risk management and configuration control, while maintaining a proactive commitment toward customer satisfaction.



As a quality producer of precision expanded foils for lightning strike protection on composite aircraft & wind turbine components, we have always worked closely with our Customers to provide a product that exceeds their expectations.  Working as an ISO Certified facility for over fifteen (15) years, we recognize the value of having a quality/operations system that meets an established criterion for conforming to our customer’s internal quality standards. With the aircraft and wind power industry becoming prominent market segments for our company, the ability to conform to the industry quality requirements is essential for solidifying the business in years to come. Working off a solid operational and quality foundation built around ISO, implementing the unique requirements of the AS Standard was an easy transition. Our vice-president of engineering & business development, Mark Murdoch, along with Carlo Samartano, our quality manager and the entire management team, performed the task with minimal disruptions to the daily operation. Working with a quality organization like Intertek, the certification registrar, can facilitate the transformation by providing great insight and value to the certification process.

Receiving our updated AS9100:D and ISO 9001:2015 Certification will allow Dexmet to better conform to our customer’s individual quality programs. We are the only company with the breadth of experience with airframe, pre-preg, and wind turbine manufacturers to provide technical expertise and have the capacity and capability to provide support to the growing carbon fiber aerospace, and alternative energy platforms. We have repeatedly proven to our customers that we can maintain the rigorous quality standards at high production volumes to keep the supply line flowing.  This is an achievement that we are dedicated to and proud of.  We look forward to working with our current and future customers and will continue to provide the best available option for expanded materials in the industry.
