Do Certifications Really Matter?

Many industries require vendors to be certified for them to qualify to bid on a project.  This most definitely is the case when it comes to contract manufacturing.  JW Machine is one of the preferred providers of precision CNC machining services for industries such as aerospace, defense, and OEM parts manufacturing.  JW Machine is AS 9100 D / ISO 9001:2015 certified, JCP Certified and ITAR registered.  These standards are the most typical standards required to do work in the military contracting arena. Some of the contract manufacturing work our machine shop handles involves precision CNC machining processes such as milling turning, laser cutting, laser etching, laser engraving, close tolerance machining, and small part machining.

MIL-SPEC/MIL-STD are standards developed specifically by the Department of Defense (DOD) to standardize the production of military parts and components supplied from multiple manufactures.  A facility certified by the DOD to manufacture items for use by the military meets or exceeds the standards for sourcing raw materials, production and supply logistics.  These standards are used for everything from office supplies to weapons and nuclear submarine components. JW Machine is AS 9100 D / ISO 9001:2015 certified, JCP Certified and meets ITAR registration quality compliance.

AS9100 certification is an accreditation associated specifically with the aerospace Industry.  The standards established by the Society of Automotive Engineers ensure quality assurance in design, development, manufacturing and servicing of aerospace industry production. Our machine shop is AS 9100 D / ISO 9001:2015 certified.

ISO 9001 is a general certification which sets basic standards and guidelines for manufacturing products.  The ISO 9001 standards ensure the quality assurance programs are able to consistently provide products and services which meet minimum tolerances and are in accordance with regulatory requirements. JW Machine is a machine shop that has both AS 9100 D / ISO 9001:2015 certified quality control standards.

If you are in need of a quality machine shop that has numerous certifications and registrations, look no further.  JW Machine is exceptionally qualified to handle any of your contract manufacturing, milling turning, close tolerance machining, small part machining, laser cutting, laser etching and laser engraving needs.
