BROOKFIELD, Conn.—Nordex, Inc., a manufacturer of precision electromechanical parts and assemblies, reported that it has been certified to the AS9100D quality standard by the American Systems Registrar, LLC. AS9100D is the gold standard of quality certifications, building upon ISO9001:2015 to account for the high stakes involved in manufacturing for the aerospace industry.
“AS9100D certification is an important milestone for Nordex,” said Dan Agius, Jr., Nordex’s CFO and part-owner, in a company release. “We are ready to take our reputation for quality gears, machined parts, and assemblies to new heights by welcoming a wider range of clients from the aerospace sector.”
Nordex has been manufacturing in the United States for more than 60 years, and Agius credits the firm’s success to its commitment to innovation and improvement.
“We have relationships with clients who are Fortune 500 companies that go back decades. It is our constant goal to improve—to be the best manufacturer we can possibly be—that helps us to keep serving these customers,” Agius said in the release. “AS9100D certification is another achievement that demonstrates our commitment to continuously improve.”
AS9100D certification has helped Nordex improve all facets of its manufacturing operations, including its gear manufacturing.
“Nordex’s bread and butter is gear manufacturing,” said Nordex Vice President of Quality and Regulatory Affairs Randy Ketchum, in the release. “The gear industry constantly changes and advances. Becoming AS9100D certified has helped Nordex to build the tools we need to keep evolving with the industry.”
Nordex develops fully integrated turnkey subsystems to address the power transmission needs of customers in the medical, aerospace, defense, robotics, semiconductor, and factory automation OEM industries, the company said in the release.
“Our entire existing client base gains from these improvements,” Agius said. “AS9100D helps us to better run and manage our business, while improving our quality processes and better controlling our costs. This is a benefit to all of our customers.”
