We have dedicated quality personnel on staff, whose primary responsibility is to ensure we are hitting every possible quality standard our customers expect.  All VRG sources undergo a stringent vetting process to work with us.  We are just as strict when it comes to our testing standards, engaging in only the highest-quality component testing from the most reputable testing organizations.

Our Quality Policy

We strive to achieve the highest level of customer satisfaction by delivering quality products and services, while continually improving our Quality Management System. We are committed to satisfying industry, legal, regulatory, and AS9120B/ISO 9001: 2015 requirements.

Did you know we are AS9120B/ISO 9001: 2015 certified?

The AS9120 Rev B Standard is specifically for distributors of aerospace industry hardware and materials.  It was created by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) and published by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).  This Standard is based on ISO 9001 and AS9100  international standards for quality management system requirements for aviation, space, and defense distributors.

The AS9120B certification attests that VRG Components also meets requirements beyond those specified in the previous revision AS9120A, such as risk-based thinking, process-based thinking (PDCA), change management, organizational knowledge, product safety, counterfeit parts prevention, awareness, and obsolescence.

“We are honored to receive this certification from Advantage International Registrar, Inc.  Earning this important certification required a great deal of hard work and commitment at every level of our organization.  It is yet another demonstration of our commitment to ensuring the highest quality services to our customers, specifically those in the aerospace industry.”
