Quality Systems

Quality from ground to sky

Quality at EBAD is designed and built into everything we do. From our personnel to our products, from our management team to our customers, we adhere to the highest standards of reliable peak performance. As a company specializing in the aerospace and defense industries, we consistently strive to improve our products, performance and productivity.

Rooted in principles

Since the beginning, EBAD’s commitment to quality has been based on the high-reliability performance demands of the industries and markets we serve.  Rooted in the principles of MIL-Q-9858, NASA, and the Department of Energy quality system standards, EBAD has evolved and continuously improved its quality management system to meet the international and aerospace industry recognized models, AS9100D and ISO 9001:2015. EBAD has also recently been certified in accordance with NADCAP for AC7114/4 NonDestructive Testing Film Radiography in our Simsbury, Connecticut location.

Always reaching higher

To support these models, continually improve our system, and better satisfy our customers, EBAD is actively expanding its capabilities in state-of-the-art progressive-quality disciplines such as Lean/Six Sigma. Consistent with the ISO/AS model, EBAD’s quality management system is a process-based structure built on the following elements: Quality, Leadership, Resources, Customer Management, Engineering, Supply Chain, and Operations. EBAD successfully completed the transition to AS9100:2016 with a multi-site certification for our Graham, KY; Moorpark, CA; and Simsbury, CT facilities.
