TROY, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pacamor Kubar Bearings is pleased to announce that they have successfully completed recertification to ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100:2009. This certification represents an upgrade to the company's previous AS9100:2004 aerospace classification.
To achieve certification, Pacamor Kubar Bearings demonstrated a comprehensive and effective quality management system that governs all areas of its operation. PKB was evaluated throughout every phase of the ball bearing manufacturing process, including procurement, production, and testing to accounting, logistics, information systems and human resources. The latest analysis also included a thorough audit of all policies and practices, confirming that they are applied with a commitment towards ongoing improvement. The quality system assessment was completed at PKB’s Troy, New York facility on April 4, 2012, including a review of all special capabilities necessary to develop and/or manufacture miniature and instrument ball bearings for the aerospace industry.
The AS9100 standard is an Aerospace Industry Specification derived from ISO 9001.
