ITALEAF: Skyrobotic Announces EN9100:2009 and ISO9001:2008 Certifications for the Italian Facility
- Skyrobotic, a leading manufacturer of unmanned aircraft systems (drones), continues to strengthen its commitment to aerospace industry
Skyrobotic, a company active in the development, design, production and marketing of unmanned aircraft systems (SAPR) in mini and micro classes for civil and commercial use, part of Italeaf Group, has been certified EN 9100: 2009 (equivalent in technical terms to AS 9100C and JISQ 9100 2009) for the facility of Nera Montoro, Italy, in the “design, production and after sales service of unmanned aircraft systems”.
This is the result of a two-year investment in the processes of preparation and auditing carried out by the company, which qualifies Skyrobotic as the first independent company in the production of drones under 25 kg in Italy to qualify according to the strict criteria of the European standard that describes a system quality assurance for the aviation industry. Its equivalents are the AS 9100 in America and in Asia JISQ 9100.
The EN ISO 9100:2009 is specific qualification for the aerospace industry, fully comprehends the ISO 9001:2008 (certification obtained simultaneously from Skyrobotic) and creates transparency in the aerospace sector. The focus is not only on process orientation, procurement and risk management. Due to long development times, it’s equally important to manage documents, configuration and development, and is applicable to aircraft manufacturers and increasingly also their suppliers.
“It is a very important result – stated Mr Stefano neri, Chairman of Skyrobotic and Italeaf – which marks a further important watershed for the Skyrobotic industrial qualification on a competitive continental market, that is facing the issue of regulation and limitations for professional use of the unmanned aircraft systems. The strategic and industrial choice to qualify our excellent quality control system to a level of international class, we believe to contribute to strengthen the Italian and European UAS ecosystem, helping to broaden the possibility of applying the technology of drones to always major industrial, professional, commercial and service sectors”.
“The certification EN 9100:2009 to our industrial facility plant in Narni (Italy), obtained by the independent and accredited certification body Dekra, demonstrates our ongoing commitment to be a world-class supplier in the aerospace industry. We are very proud of all our employees who have worked hard to achieve this result – says Federico Zacaglioni, CEO of Skyrobotic – This demanding endeavor forced us to improve every process we use to develop, manufacture, our unmanned aircraft systems and support our customers. Skyrobotic is a company that pursues continuously measurable improvements. Our customers in the field of aerial work requiring a very high level of quality product and we have the responsibility to aanswwer effectively to their needs. The Group’s commitment is to continually surpass expectations with deliveries and quality standards higher and higher”.
