TARBORO – Kanban Logistics has earned a certificate of registration for the AS9100 quality standard – the quality-management system recognized by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration as the standard for the aerospace industry.

Major aerospace manufacturers and suppliers worldwide have set the AS9100 standard as a condition of doing business with them. The certification applies to warehousing and logistics operations and was awarded by Management Certification of North America, an accredited certification body of the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board.

The AS9100 certification encompasses all provisions of the ISO 9001:2008 quality standard and other aerospace-related quality requirements.

“Kanban has delivered high-quality logistics services to aerospace companies for many years,” its president, William Wooten, said in the release. “This certification gives current and future customers an even higher degree of confidence that we have processes, procedures and systems built to the exacting standards of the aerospace and defense industry.”
