Lutterworth, UK - Simrit, the industrial sealing products division of Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies, has announced that its Lutterworth facility in the UK has been certified with the expanded AS9120 quality management system certification.
"The expanded AS9120 certification to Revision A provides Simrit the global recognition of being a reputable supplier and is an accepted industry benchmark that we're proud to have achieved," said Vinay Nilkanth, vice president global sales aerospace, Simrit in a 26 Oct news release.
The AS9120 certification was specifically written by the aerospace industry in a concerted effort to improve quality and assure the integrity of suppliers to the industry. The AS9120 designation requires suppliers to focus on the areas impacting logistics, safety and reliability, and defines requirements for batch and lot traceability, records, airworthiness and evidence of conformance.
The Lutterworth facility provides warehouse and logistics services to key European aerospace customers and UK-based industrial customers. Earlier this year, the company's Santa Ana, California facility achieved the AS9100 recertification for product design.
