Governors America Corp. receives AS9100D certification

AGAWAM, Mass. – Governors America Corp. (GAC), a veteran-owned, Massachusetts-based global manufacturer of engine solutions, has received its AS9100 certification. An international aerospace manufacturing standard, the AS9100 ensures that an organization has a quality management system capable of consistently providing products that meet statutory and regulatory requirements.   Many aerospace manufacturers require AS9100 approval from its suppliers.

“This certification will open up new doors for us and further proves the quality of what we produce,” said Governors America Corp. president Sean Collins. “For more than 35 years, we have been developing and manufacturing essential parts for almost everything that moves. This certification raises us to a new level, allowing our body of work to grow and expand.”

Receiving an AS9100 certification requires a rigorous application process that can take years to complete, including a two-stage audit. The certification is valid for three years, with a surveillance audit completed each year to ensure compliance with a set standard and a re-certification audit prior to the expiration.

“This rigorous process was made even more difficult due to the restrictions of the pandemic, which delayed our obtaining the certification,” continued Collins. “But all the time and effort was worth it. We are known for power generation in multiple industries and this certification will allow for further expansion into the aerospace arena, a competitive and advanced market.”
