General Magnaplate — a world leader in the science of surface enhancement for metals and other substrates — has announced that its Arlington, Texas facility has achieved AS9100:D certification.

Companies earn AS9100 certification by proving their operations continually meet stringent quality requirements in order to indicate their products are safe and reliable for use in the aviation, space and defense industry (AS&D).

The certification affirms that General Magnaplate has implemented and maintains a quality control system with policies and procedures designed to promote continuous improvement. To that end, General Magnaplate continually ensures quality control through internal audits, comprehensive documentation, ongoing training and company-wide adherence to correct procedures including risk assessment, remediation and communication.

“We are very proud of our AS9100 certification,” said Ashley Russo, chief operating officer at General Magnaplate. “Our associates have embraced a philosophy of continuous improvement, and the certification reinforces customer confidence in our ability to set and fulfill stringent standards for quality.”


General Magnaplate traces its beginnings to the space program, and the AS9100:D certification is yet another example of its relentless commitment to provide the industry with world-class engineered surface enhancement products and customer service. Although AS9100 is a universal standard for the aerospace industry, customers in many industries look for the certification because it indicates a vendor’s dedication to excellence.
