Boeing has helped Danish machining company Multicut achieve AS/EN9100 certification, which increases companies’ opportunities to win supplier contracts.
Multicut, located in Vildbjerg, manufactures complex machined parts and subassemblies. Its certification is part of a Boeing industrial participation program that helps Danish companies of all sizes pursue high-technology manufacturing contracts.
“Through our work with Boeing to mature our quality management system for AS/EN9100, we have raised our process management to world-class standards and opened the door for future opportunities in the global aerospace industry,” said Multicut CEO and co-owner Lars Rasmussen.
The Boeing and Multicut collaboration began in 2009, with a Boeing Supplier Quality expert training Multicut employees on the quality management system requirements used across the aerospace industry. Throughout the preparation process, Boeing experts and a third-party specialist assessed Multicut’s operations and offered guidance.
“Boeing remains committed to partnering with Danish companies such as Multicut and enabling them to create and pursue opportunities for international growth,” said Rick Cisiewski, Denmark country manager, Boeing International Strategic Partnerships.
AS/EN9100 is an aerospace-specific certification, based on ISO 9001 manufacturing standards, that is required by most major aerospace manufacturers and their suppliers. Certified companies are registered in an industry database that advertises their capabilities to prospective customers.
Multicut uses state-of-the-art production equipment in its Lean manufacturing facility – including 9-axis turn-mill, 4-axis and 5-axis vertical and horizontal computer numerical controlled machines networked with robotic material handling systems.
