June 2017 – Why Does ISO 9001 and AS 9100 Certification Make a Difference?

Value for your money and a piece of mind; they are important considerations when you’re looking to having a product that is going to bear your name. This is why it is important to know the companies you hire have a ISO 9001 and AS 9100 Certification, a set standard in quality and customer satisfaction.

Why cut corners with an organization that may, or may not, have processes in place to ensure satisfaction? Why take risks with your reputation or leave it in the hands of an organization that hasn’t proven they can meet basic standards?


The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) aims to create a quality management process in manufacturing from a global perspective. An ISO 9001 certification means an organization has systematic processes in place, is able to reduce the impact should an issue occur, and have the ability to speed up recovery. In the most basic terms, an ISO Certification means there is a good solid foundation for implementing management standards and a process for control, improvement, and efficiency.

The AS 9100 certificate “drills down” on the ISO 9001 requirements and recommendations for the complex nature of aerospace and defense, highlighting the statutory and regulatory requirements decided by the International Aerospace Quality Group.

Both certifications center on a basic level of standards and having processes in place to improving the product requirements and preventative actions. Earning these certificates means a company is dedicated to quality and customer satisfaction. It means putting your product in the hands of a company that values its employee’s safety and its customer’s end product.

These values are the basis of The Omnicon Group’s commitment to exceeding the needs of our customers, and why we have achieved our ISO 9001:2008 and AS 9100 certification for all engineering and product development services.
