The solution

The MassMEP worked with Precision Engineering in the areas of…

AS9100C, ISO certifications, Amada laser cutting system, ERP/MRP system’s

The installation of an additional Amada laser cutting system, which is able to cut metal up to 1” thick has enabled PEI to simultaneously increase capabilities and capacity – relieving pressures on existing laser and punching equipment, to better meet customer delivery requirements.

MassMEP worked with President Liora Stone and her team to not only decide on AS9100 certification but to implement the process, achieve successful AS9100C certification , renewexisting ISO certifications, and find assistance in financing the project.

With MassMEP

With many jobs already requiring aerospace type standards of excellence and some customers already bridging both the commercial and the aerospace/military sectors, obtaining additional certification to AS9100 was the logical choice. Once a growth plan was in place, the question became how to achieve AS 9100 certification in a manner that enhanced and developed the current QMS, cost-effectively and without “making everybody crazy”. Precision Engineering contacted MassMEP.
