Australian gear manufacturer, Ronson Gears, has been awarded accreditation to AS9100C Quality Management System Standard (Aerospace), paving the way for the company’s expansion into new markets internationally.
UK based Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance Limited conducted the audit late last year and awarded Ronson Gears the accreditation for its gear manufacturing and quality systems.
The accreditation is recognition of the company’s longstanding focus on quality, customer service and its ongoing investment in state-of –the-art equipment, says Ronson Managing Director Gordon New.
“We achieved ISO9001 accreditation in 1998 and have a proven record of providing quality services to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM’s) in a broad range of industries,” Mr New said. “We’ve supplied BAE Systems for many years as well as indirectly supplying well-known companies including Boeing and Lockheed Martin.
“The new accreditation means the company’s expertise will be more widely recognised globally,” he said. “Our agent in North America is already in contact with a number of potential new customers and we hope to branch into Europe as well in years to come.”
Ronson Gears was established in 1954 and is a family-owned, Australian company. It is a member of the American Gear Manufacturers Association and an Associate Member of Eurotrans and the European Committee of Associations of Manufacturers of Gears and Transmission Parts, which includes the British Gear Association.
Ronson Gears’ manufacturing equipment is used throughout the gear manufacturing process including CNC machining, CNC gear cutting, CNC gear grinding, CNC gear measurement and CNC gear tool sharpening.
