Gasbarre Press Group receives Association of American Railroads Certification
After a quality system audit performed in August 2015, Gasbarre Technologies has received its M-1003 Quality Assurance Program Certification from the Association of American Railroads (AAR). Good through August 2018, this certification applies specifically to the manufacture of tank car service equipment and the recondition/repair and qualification of tank car service equipment.
In early 2009, Gasbarre received its Tank Car Facility Registration. At that time, this registration was all that was required for us to manufacture rail car service and ancillary parts.
In 2014, the AAR began discussions and passed a new requirement that all facilities manufacturing service parts must become a certified facility. Service parts in the rail industry are established as any part that could cause a safety issue in the event of a failure or accident. The compliance of our system is audited by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA).
The “key” elements of the system embody quality, traceability of all aspects involved in manufacturing of the parts, and safety.
This Certification was critical to Gasbarre Technologies’ focus to become a premier supplier of service parts to the Railroad Industry.
