AS9100 is among the highest international quality management standards for the aircraft, space and defence industries.  The AS9100 Quality Management System standard promotes continuous product and process improvement and ensures that specific processes are used in the manufacture of production components.

Ken Hagan, the Division President of SPIROL Shim stated “These industry leading quality system certifications represent the ongoing commitment by the entire team at SPIROL to high quality, high value, flexible and responsive manufacturing, and customer service.”

“SPIROL continues to be a unique and responsive industry leader in both short run and large volume manufacturing by stocking a wide range of standard raw materials, having low or no tooling costs on low volume orders, and in-house secondary processes like heat treating, passivation, machining, grinding, and value-added assembly and kitting.  This is all supported by a team dedicated to ensuring SPIROL’s performance and quality meets and exceeds our customers’ most challenging applications.  This certification exemplifies our relentless pursuit of continuous improvement.”
