Lucas-Milhaupt Earns the AS9100 Certification Furthering Their Commitment of Quality to the Aerospace Industry
CUDAHY, Wis., October 27, 2017 – Lucas-Milhaupt Inc., a global industry leader in metal-joining products and technology is now poised to better serve its aerospace industry customers with the AS9100 certification. The rigorous process of obtaining the certification was well worth the journey enabling Lucas-Milhaupt to better comply with the demands of producing high quality products.
AS9100 registration ensures Lucas-Milhaupt customers that they have partnered with the market leader in every respect as the certification measures customer satisfaction, reduces risk, decreases defective product rates, focuses on continuous improvement and product quality. These high standards provide a picture of how the company is managed as a whole, leaving no question about the products and services they provide.
“We’re proud to be part of a group of manufacturers that are proactive in the industry and are committed to consistent systematic improvement,” said John Whitenack, CEO and President, Lucas-Milhaupt, Inc. “We have always been a great partner to our customers, and now we can be an even better one providing the highest quality products as quickly as possible.”
As an alloy manufacturer and fabricator, Lucas-Milhaupt maintains controls and traceability producing parts for customers, beginning with the raw material. This is a competitive advantage over other companies in the industry who must first purchase the parts and then resell them. Ultimately, this leads to improved quality and delivery time for aerospace customers. What’s more, if a customer requires help with designing parts, Lucas-Milhaupt’s brazing experts have the technical expertise and capacity to do so.
There is much to celebrate this year at Lucas-Milhaupt. The AS9100 certification comes on the heels of their 75th anniversary year. Through this time, they have grown into a global leader developing a unique business with comprehensive custom fabricating services, technical expertise and knowledgeable technical support. They have become one of the world`s biggest suppliers of brazing and soldering materials.
With its brazing legacy, Lucas-Milhaupt is a division of the global industrial company Handy & Harman, Limited. They hold the original patent and trademarks of many of the brazing alloys used by manufacturers and contractors within industry today. Coincidently, Handy & Harman celebrated their 150th Anniversary this year.
Lucas-Milhaupt plans to honor all of these milestones on Thursday, November 2, 2017 with an employee luncheon and a flag raising in celebration.
