AS9100 Rev C is an aerospace industry quality standard.

Coast Composites, based in California, supplies aerospace tooling for large, complex composite parts.

Hampson Aerospace's Tooling Solutions division also includes comprises Odyssey Industries Inc and Global Tooling Systems Inc, and these companies will undergo their Rev C audits in the coming months, reports Paul Walsh, Hampson Tooling Solutions CEO.

"Rev C is no easy certification to achieve given the added requirements of risk mitigation," he says.

"Aerospace tooling is a dynamic business with significant challenges due to the concurrent design and build process. Our teams have worked hard at upgrading our processes in programme management to deliver on these new requirements."
