Las Cruces, NM-May 29, 2018: Vista Photonics, Inc.
announces that it has achieved accreditation for both the ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100D standards. AS9100 is a certification pioneered
by the Aerospace Industry and based off the ISO 9001 certification. This standard was developed to recognize reliable vendors
for the Aerospace Industry. Compliant companies are recognized on an approved vendor list, and this list is available to buyers,
procurement, and engineers in Aerospace and other Industries.
"Vista Photonics' achievement of this accreditation demonstrates a continued commitment to providing high quality gas detection and monitoring sensors that exceed our customers' expectations," stated Dr. Jeffrey S. Pilgrim, President and Founder of Vista Photonics. "AS 9100 Rev D was a critical achievement for us as it demonstrates our commitment to quality for all our customers, but is especially important for our clients in the Aerospace and Defense markets. With our Quality Management Systems, we now have proven success in design as well as manufacturing."
To achieve the certification,
Vista Photonics was required to participate in a multistep review process. The initial application was a written document that highlighted
the quality management system and process. Once the written application was approved a physical assessment was conducted. An auditor
validates the compliance of the facility, reviews the implementation of the process and determines the processes effectiveness. Once
achieving the initial certification, certification surveillance and scheduled audits will be in place regularly. This will insure
that compliance and protocols are continually improved and followed.
"Vista Photonics has demonstrated its commitment to world class quality Design and Assembly of Laser Based Optical Gas Detection and Monitoring Sensors by implementing and becoming certified to both the ISO 9001:2015 and AS 9100 Rev D standards. They have joined an elite number of organizations worldwide who have achieved certification to theses globally recognized quality standards," said Randy Daugharthy, Director of the Registrar Program at the Performance Review Institute Registrar. "PRI Registrar is proud to partner with Vista Photonics in this accomplishment and look forward to continued support of their objective of quality excellence."
