"This certification sets the highest level of protection to safeguard mission-critical aerospace components,”says president and CEO Rob Van Etten. “Attaining AS9120 requires substantial effort and commitment on the part of all of our employees, and demonstrates Brighton Cromwell’s dedication to ensuring customers are receiving genuine, authorized parts and components in the aerospace marketplace.”
