Airline Hydraulics achieves ISO 9001:2015 Certification

Airline Hydraulics Corporation, a regional supplier of fluid power, automation, electrical control, and safety products and engineered systems, has received ISO 9001:2015 certification.

This upgrade from Airline’s previous ISO 9001:2008 certification follows an extensive analysis of its quality systems by SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. This certification includes the Bensalem, Pennsylvania, headquarters and six other company locations. By achieving ISO 9001:2015 compliance, Airline is assuring customers of their commitment to consistent delivery of quality products and services.

Released in October 2015, ISO 9001:2015 is the latest release of the Quality Management System standard set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISO 9001:2015 provides a number of requirements that must be fulfilled in order to insure a continuous improvement environment that enhances customer satisfaction. SGS auditors confirmed that Airline’s Quality Management System is established and implemented at all of Airline’s certified sites in accordance with the requirements of the ISO 9001:2015 standard.

“Our compliance to the ISO 9001:2015 standard assures our customers that Airline has a formal Quality Management System in place. An organization with an effective Quality Management System will typically meet customer expectations far better than an organization without such a system. More and more organizations are requesting that their suppliers have ISO 9001:2015 certification. By achieving this certification, Airline will be more efficient, address potential quality or business risks, and increase the satisfaction of our customers,” said Charles Accisano, Airline’s quality assurance manager.

Joseph Miceli, chief executive officer of Airline, added, “I am extremely proud of all of our employee/owners for the commitment, diligence, and hard work that all have contributed to achieve this certification. This also is validation of the past efforts and focus on Total Quality that Airline has been known for in the industry and with our customers, and now has culminated in achieving this important certification as official recognition of the processes to support our goal of customer satisfaction.”
