Allen Tool Phoenix adds AS9100D Certification


Continuing with the momentum from our successful transition to ISO 9001:2015 in December, Allen Tool updated its QMS and passed the external audits to achieve AS9100D certification this May.


In addition to these certifications we have added some additional square footage with an addition to the back of our building. We have also added some new equipment to support Customer requirements and give us additional capacity.


This puts us in a great position to handle new business and pursue controlled, sustained growth in the future.



ISO 9001:2015 and NIST 800-171 Achieved


We have been busy in the 4th quarter with audits and certifications here at Allen Tool Phoenix Inc.


First in November we completed the 3 day transition audit to ISO 9001:2015. We had no new findings!


We also completed a full year of audits to the new Aerospace Standard AS9001 D. We hope to complete the external certification by the end of January. 


We also finished a third party Cybersecurity Risk Assessment audit to NIST 800-171. All recommended improvements to our system have been completed and have been verified by the Cybersecurity experts from The Advanced Institute for Manufacturing (AIM). They are part of the New York Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP).


The urgency to complete this was due to the Department of Defense DFARS 252.204-7012 requirement to meet the NIST 800-171 cybersecurity standard. The deadline was to be compliant by December 31st 2017 to continue to do business with the Government.


Congratulations to the entire team for supporting this.
