Bahrain MRO company, Gulf Technics (GT), has been awarded the ISO 9001:2008 and AS/EN9120 certification following a detailed audit that covers all areas of operations at GT.
The scope covers the supply of aircraft components and associated asset management for air transport operations worldwide including the co-ordination of aircraft component repair and overhaul management services.
GT’s Acting CEO Mahmood Al Balooshi said: “Achieving the AS/EN9120 certification will put GT on the map, making us one step closer to reaching our goal and that is to become one of the best MRO providers in the MENA region.”
GT’s achievement in obtaining the AS/EN 9120 as well as ISO 9000:2008 certification will have a substantial impact on the components services that GT offers, setting GT as one of the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQC) certified components provider on the Oasis database.
