Aircraft Propeller Service (APS) Earns AS9100D Certification

Aircraft Propeller Service, LLC (APS, Lake Zurich, IL), a commercial propeller maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) operation, receives its Certificate of Registration for having its quality management system (QMS) meet the compliance requirements of ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100D.

The AS9100D certification was attained by both APS headquarters in Lake Zurich, IL, and its Atibaia, Sao Paulo, Brazil, facility.

Covered by the certification are the full scope of APS’ processes, including: maintenance, repair, overhaul, inspection and sales of aircraft propeller systems, as
well as its chemical processing, coating, machining, surface enhancement, sealant and non-destructive testing services.

“This is another step in our quality improvement initiative,” says APS president and CEO, Daniel Colbert. “By adhering to our industry’s highest standards in quality management, we are conveying to our clients and other manufacturers our total commitment to high quality services and operations.”

APS originally secured its AS9100 Certification in 2017 after proving effectiveness in helping companies deliver better operating performance and profitability, as well as demonstrating to customers an overarching commitment to quality. With more OEMs demanding the certification of their suppliers and business partners, APS saw certification as necessary tool to remain competitive.
