Industrial Supply Co. receives aerospace ISO certification

Industrial Supply Company announced that it has received ISO AS9120 certification, a prestigious quality management systems standard applicable to organizations that resell, distribute, and warehouse aerospace components.

The standard was developed to address matters such as chain of custody, traceability, and availability of records. AS9120 is based on the general manufacturing standard ISO 9001, but is more stringent, with nearly 100 additional requirements specific to aerospace distributors, focusing on areas that affect product safety and reliability.

Streamlined documentation, improved audit and surveillance efficiency, and enhanced supplier performance are just a few of the advantages of being AS9120 certified.

"It is a very challenging recognition for which to qualify and it shows the strength of our entire team," said Chris Bateman, CEO of Industrial Supply, headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah. "This certification sends a message to current and future customers that Industrial Supply is a company committed to quality and continuously improving on our deliverables as a valuable supply-chain partner."

The certification was issued by global certification agency NSF International.
