All four Solar Atmospheres facilities recently obtained certifications to AS9100 Revision D and ISO9001:2015.

The facilities, located in Souderton, PA, Hermitage, PA, Fontana, CA, and Greenville, S.C., serve more than 18 industries including aerospace, automotive, defense, medical, and power generation.

Solar has held AS and ISO quality management systems registration certificates since 2001.

These latest releases are the most demanding international standards required of suppliers to the aviation, space, defense and medical industries. The certification preparation followed a rigorous process of evaluating existing procedures and aligning them with the new requirements. Solar’s quality management systems ensure continuous improvement in productivity, efficiency and high class product quality.

“A key portion of this latest revision highlights the need for top management’s commitment and risk assessment," said Edward Engelhard, corporate quality manager. "We at Solar have a daily commitment to quality vacuum thermal processing, from senior management on down. The adherence to strict specification requirements and to uncompromising process execution provides a service that not only meets, but often surpasses our customer’s expectations.”
