Pacamor Kubar Bearings (PKB) completed recertification to ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100:2009. This certification represents an upgrade to the company’s previous AS9100:2004 classification.
To achieve certification, PKB demonstrated a comprehensive and effective quality management system that governs all areas of its operation. PKB was evaluated throughout every phase of the manufacturing process, including procurement, production, and testing to accounting, logistics, information systems and human resources.
The latest analysis also included a thorough audit of all policies and practices, confirming that they are applied with a commitment towards ongoing improvement. The quality system assessment was completed at PKB’s Troy, New York facility on April 4, 2012, including a review of all special capabilities necessary to develop and/or manufacture miniature and instrument ball bearings for the aerospace industry.
The AS9100 standard is an Aerospace Industry Specification derived from ISO 9001. The AS9100:2009 standard specifies the quality management system requirements for suppliers to the Defense, Aviation, and Space Industry. This upgraded AS9100:2009 standard supplements ISO 9001 by addressing the specific additional expectations of the aerospace industry, with special focus on improved quality, schedule, and cost performance.
