Superior Quality Control Solutions
Superior Machining Company is an ISO 9001:2015- and AS9100D-certified American contract manufacturer. Our robust quality control system provides the high level of precision and consistency that aerospace and defense manufacturers need, without exception. We do this with a keen focus on quality metrics. Superior utilizes Statistical Process Control (SPC) methods to ensure that our facility operates at peak production without being over extended, and the result is a Parts Per Million (PPM) well below the industry average.
We also ensure quality by employing experienced quality personnel utilizing CNC coordinate measuring machines (CMMs). All of these things help us limit wasted time and materials, which add up to effective cost control for our clients.
What ISO 9001 and AS9100 Certification Mean at Superior Machining
Consistently producing quality aircraft components is about much more than cost control – it’s about limiting your risk. We do this by being AS9100- and ISO 9001-certified. Maintaining these certifications ensure that our facility and practices meet comprehensive quality standards. Everything from our inspection and testing procedures to our product documentation has to meet stringent requirements for us to keep our certifications.
Being certified also ensures that we’re capable of certain quality controls, like lot traceability and internal audits. Ultimately, these certifications are a hallmark of our quality as an aerospace manufacturer and indicate that we are a company that can be trusted.

When manufacturing components for defense projects, accuracy, process control and documentation are essential. At Superior, we have the experience, certifications, staff, and equipment required to competitively produce critical aerospace parts on time.
We are an ITAR-registered contract manufacturer capable of producing controlled defense and military aircraft parts and providing material and lot traceability, including DFARS material controls. To ensure we provide this precision, our facility is certified for both AS9100 D and ISO 9001:2015.
We also utilize SPC for many of our quality and performance metrics, including a temperature-controlled quality room with multiple fully automated CMM’s (coordinate measuring machines) to ensure accurate measurements.
