(Minneapolis, Minn. — May 23, 2016) Diversified Plastics, Inc. was awarded a Silver Certificate by Eclipse Aerospace, Inc., elevating the company on the Eclipse Aerospace Certified Supplier List. Eclipse Aerospace, which is part of ONE Aviation Corporation, is a manufacturer of personal jet aircraft based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Eclipse Aerospace regularly monitors supplier quality, and after a recent review, Diversified Plastics achieved the next supplier level. “Moving from bronze to the silver supplier level at Eclipse Aerospace was the direct result of delivering First Article Inspection (FAI) reports in a timely manner with all the dimensions matching print specifications during the past six months,” said Annette Lund, vice president, Diversified Plastics. “Our work with Eclipse Aerospace involved several transfer tools and it was important to keep parts in production during the transfer. We did that by producing FAI parts that were approved the first time, which can be difficult with tools built by another supplier.”
FAI reports are used by the aerospace and other manufacturing industries to ensure the very first part produced meets all engineering design, dimensional specifications and all visual requirements. Additionally, all processes have to be verified and documented. “We have stringent quality procedures — from the moment we receive the purchase order to shipping the final product out the door,” said Joni Davis, sales engineer at Diversified Plastics. “We not only need to produce parts to specifications, but also provide documentation supporting all aspects of our quality program, from process controls and parts traceability to certifications and employee training.”
