TURBOCAM India Achieves AS9100C Certification

Press release date: April 14, 2014

Salcete, Goa, (INDIA)– TURBOCAM India Private Ltd. (TIPL) has achieved AS9100C certification. The AS9100C is the international management system standard for the aviation, space, and defense industries. The certification provides TIPL with a comprehensive quality system for providing safe and reliable products in a key growth market where there is rising demand.

The AS9100C designation, considered the aerospace industry gold standard for quality assurance, is offered only to organizations that develop and produce aviation, space, and defense products while demonstrating strict adherence to quality, reliability, and safety standards. It ensures that the company has passed rigorous evaluations of its manufacturing processes to achieve the standard of quality required.

“Achieving the AS9100C certification is part of our ongoing effort to evolve, grow, and reinforce our existing ISO quality systems in support of our customer base,” said Savio Carvalho, TIPL General Manager. “We recognize a growing demand in the aerospace industry and have taken the necessary steps to become an implicitly trusted manufacturer of these products and parts. TIPL welcomes any challenge presented to us by current or prospective clients, and look forward to reaching our next goal.”

Heading the feat of getting TIPL AS9100C certified was Sunil D’Cunha, TIPL Quality Assurance Manager. “I started the process to satisfy the requirements of one of our main domestic customers," said D'Cunha. "Along the way, it became clear that this journey would strengthen our entire organization and could have many positive long-term effects to mature our QMS (Quality Management System) and provide opportunities for increased business growth and profitability.”

The entire process consisted of many steps, including making a vibrant and dynamic QMS that could be accessed by all on the internal network. It also included setting key performance indicators and objectives, such as on-time delivery, product conformity, and customer satisfaction index; and a gap analysis audit, where the assessor pointed out the various gaps the company needed to bridge for the transition from ISO 9001:2008 to AS9100C.

The final step was the Stage 2 Certification Audit, which was conducted for four days from March 24 to 27. All of the processes from engineering programming, production, training, sales, quality and calibration, stores and purchase, were rigorously audited.

“Mr. D’Cunha and his team did an exemplary job, but the process changes and improvements to achieve AS9100C certification touched nearly every department and employee,” said Carvalho. “I extend congratulations to our entire organization for this outstanding achievement.”
