ANAHEIM, CA, June 20, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Electron Beam Engineering, Inc. (EBE), a state-of-the-art electron beam and laser beam welding company, has earned the AS9100 Quality Management System certification. EBE is one of only a handful of precision welding job shops to achieve such a distinction after a rigorous evaluation process conducted by NSF International.
AS9100 adds quality assurance expectations for design, development and production work that apply specifically to the aviation, space and defense sectors - in addition to the contractual and applicable legal and regulatory requirements. Issued by Americas Aerospace Quality Standards Committee (AAQSC), this certification demonstrates proficiency within the particular sectors that EBE has serviced for more than two decades. EBE has also been granted ISO 9001:2008 certification, an international series of quality assurance standards for manufacturing and services industries.
"Earning the AS9100 Certification is, in many ways, a crowning achievement for EBE," said the company's founder and CEO Richard Trillwood. "I am incredibly proud of this certification. The whole EBE organization has worked tirelessly toward this goal for many years, and to be holding the certificate today proves that we are truly a leading force in the fusion welding business."
The Nadcap AC7004 Aerospace Quality System and AS7003 Welding accreditations, which previously were granted to EBE, complement the new AS9100 as it is process specific and technical, Trillwood said.
"For many years, EBE has provided the highest level of welding services to the aerospace and medical industries, and now the AS9100 Certification is the culmination of decades of great services, control and quality for our clients," said Grant Trillwood, General Manager of EBE. "Our company always has upheld the highest level of excellence by putting quality first. As EBE continues to grow and evolve with the changing needs of the market, we will maintain that level of quality and service."
The work that EBE has provided for its clients has spanned the galaxy, ranging from the welding on NASA's Curiosity Rover - which is currently exploring Mars - and fighter jet components to precision work on medical implants and innovative medical devices.
