Rigging Firm Achieves Aerospace Recognition
Michael Gelskey Sr., CEO, Lift-It Manufacturing, Los Angeles, Calif., has announced the company's upgraded registration to the prestigious AS9100 Quality Standard. This is in addition to the ISO9001:2008 registration acquired initially in 2002.
AS9100 defines additional requirements within an aerospace quality management system that need to be addressed when operating to an ISO9001 Quality System.
Assigned the task to conform to the AS9003, Inspection and Test Quality System Standard by a leading aerospace customer last year, Michael Gelskey, Jr., vice president, had the forethought to go one step further and commit to the additional requirements of the AS9100 standard to place Lift-It at the forefront of suppliers available to the aerospace industry.
Michael Gelskey Sr. points to anticipated benefits including, "International recognition and respect, enhanced standardized processes and procedures, improved competitive position, improved quality and delivery for the customer base."
Lift-It is an industry leader in the manufacture and supply of quality rigging and has provided product training for 30 years.
