Now it had added the specialist Quality Management Systems for Aviation, Space and Defence Organisations certification Pr EN 9100 2016 (AS9100D:2016)
Pexa has grown and invested in its in-house production with tint lines for aerospace coatings and a manufacturing plant for specialist coatings for the optics markets. A redesign of its internal processes was implemented ensuring that they conform with this latest version of the important aerospace quality approval standard.
Dale Corns, Pexa’s quality and operations manager said: “We worked with our long standing external quality consultant, Phil Warrington to redesign our process maps and produced new flow and turtle diagrams for our business-critical processes. We also rewrote our Business Management System and incorporated new tiers of quality documentation to cover key processes and forms. Our accreditation provider EQA visited us at the end of 2017 for our triennial audit and added the Pr EN 9100 requirements. We are very pleased and proud to be awarded this new standard which sits alongside our EN 9120:2016 and ISO 9001:2015 accreditations.
“This is only the start of the process, as our continuous improvement group is now working on new procedures with new graphics for all our regular processes and we hope to have that whole package in place by the time of our first renewal audit which will be carried out in 2018 for the three accreditations (9100, 9120, 9001).”
