North Carolina-based Wilbert plastic services already serves the automotive, leisure craft, and industrial sectors.

The announcement was made by company president and CEO Greg Botner. AS9100 was instituted by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) in 1999. AS9100C, the third revision of an international quality management standard for the aerospace industry, is a certification under the ISO9001 series that demonstrates a manufacturers' ability to meet various regulatory requirements, including legal and safety standards. The certification improves customer trust and satisfaction while ensuring reliability per the manufacture of aerospace components.

"The AS9100C expands our manufacturing capabilities within the plastics industry," said Botner. "It also offers aerospace customers a new option, one with more than 50 years of plastics experience, to choose when considering plastic products. We're ready to explore these avenues in the year ahead and move into this industry."

Wilbert plastic services acquired the AS9100C for aerospace in the fall of 2013. The certification was specifically awarded to the Belmont location. Added Botner, "This facility allows for the high-quality production of aerospace components or products and is strategically located to offer a wide variety of thermoform products to the industry. We're eager to demonstrate our capabilities."

The manufacturer also holds the ISO9001 certification in addition to ISO14001 and TS16949.
