SDV JFK obtained AS 9120A Certification to Meet Strict Aerospace Standards

August 14th, 2015

Although SDV New-York (JFK), USA office, has been compliant for many years with the systems of quality management related to the aerospace industry, it eventually came time to pursue an actual certification in order to meet the stringent requirements of this sector.

After almost one year of diligent work, SDV JFK has completed all prerequisites necessary to gain this accreditation. We are now pleased to announce that the AS 9120A certification has been attained since July 22, 2015.

The new certification represents a significant step beyond our current ISO 9001 certification as it provides assurance to aerospace customers that we ensure products / components are properly sourced and tracked. In addition, it will allow us to expand our commitment to continuous improvement.

The scope of activity covered by the new certificate is Aircraft Parts Management (packaging, warehousing, distribution and domestic and international transport).

We are proud of this accreditation and view this as an important achievement for SDV USA,” said Laurent Chantegros, Aerospace Director for SDV USA. “This demonstrates our commitment to deliver best-in-class supply chain and logistics services to the Aerospace industry. Quality and Compliance are key attributes in the Aerospace industry and the AS 9120A certification allows us to meet our customers’ requirements by adopting and fully supporting a formal quality process of continuous improvement.”

Many efforts, hard work and outstanding contributions were made by the JFK Team!
