QCMI Authorized to Operate an Approved FAA Repair Station
Santee, Calif. (PRWEB) July 31, 2014 — Quality Controlled Manufacturing Inc. (QCMI), a San Diego region-based precision machining manufacturer, is pleased to formally announce it was issued the USA Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Air Agency Certificate.
An Air Agency Certificate authorizes a repair station to perform maintenance on airplanes and airplane parts. Aircraft repair stations are required to certify the airworthiness of the parts on which they have performed maintenance.
Upon finding that QCMI complies in all respects with the requirements of the Federal Aviation Regulations relating to the establishment of an Air Agency, QCMI was issued the certificate on February 24, 2014 and is authorized to operate an approved FAA repair station with the following ratings: Limited Accessory and Non-Destructive Testing.
Since its founding in 1978, QCMI has produced complex parts for aircraft and gas turbines. It specializes in the precision machining of all metals including exotic alloys. The nationally recognized metal working company produces components with complex shapes, contours, exacting tolerances and stringent quality requirements. It manufactures parts and assemblies for the aerospace, power generation, Department of Defense (DOD), oil and gas, marine and heavy equipment industries.
Upon its authorization to be a FAA repair station, QCMI landed a substantial contract to rebuild integral components for a major aircraft engine manufacturer. In order to meet the demands of the new machining services, QCMI has added employees with both FAA Repairman Certificates and Airframe and Power Plant Licenses and has allocated equipment and space for the repairs in its 65,000-square-foot facility in Santee.
“By adding the FAA repair and overhaul station to our organization, we have enhanced our offerings to our customers in the aerospace industry. We now offer a comprehensive solution including engineering, production, repair and overhaul for their aerospace components and assemblies,” said QCMI COO/CFO Rick Urban.
“In order to continue QCMI’s growth, our executive team evaluated a number of risk-reduction opportunities to diversify and add more manufacturing services,” said QCMI Founder and CEO Bob Grande. “With decades of experience in the aircraft complex parts business, we invested both man-hours and funds to qualify and become an authorized FAA repair station. It’s both exciting and challenging — the work is exacting and draws on both our experience and lean manufacturing expertise.”
