Certification Process

To achieve ISO 9001:2015

AFW had to lay the groundwork for a quality management and manufacturing roadmap. This required the team to implement a business plan that defined a systematic approach to managing our service processes so that we consistently turned out products that satisfied our customers’ expectations and that would meet the auditing standards set forth by ISO Standards.

Part of this certification management plan was to ensure consistency throughout our process:

  • Acquisition of quality materials
  • Craftsmanship of a friction weld
  • Implementation of quality control standards
  • Inspection of the pieces
  • Inventory control

The Quality Management System (QMS) team’s drive was to build a level of confidence that would attract new business in the industries that AFW serves.

To quote our QMS team leader, “We outlined a plan and thoroughly went through each step of our process to ensure that the corrective and preventative measures were in place to meet this goal. It took years of preparation and implementation, but it was worth the effort.”
