Turnings Plus, LLC – AD9100D Certification Gap Analysis

With the help of: Missouri Enterprise


Turnings Plus, LLC, established in 2019, specializes in precision machining across various industries, including aerospace, food manufacturing, printing, gear manufacturing, and automotive. Their dedicated professionals have earned recognition for delivering high-quality products on time. Turnings Plus prioritizes top-quality parts, competitive pricing and personalized customer relationships. Located in Washington, Missouri, their advanced facility handles various materials and production needs ranging from prototypes to large orders. Turnings Plus offers quick delivery services, prioritizing partnerships with their customers to simplify their machining needs.

The Challenge

Turnings Plus is dedicated to providing the highest standards of product performance, cost efficiency, and reliable turn-around times. Many aerospace manufacturers and suppliers will only work with AS9100-certified partners because this certification helps ensure organizations have adequate quality management systems in place. Turnings Plus was new to the AS9100 aerospace industry and had little background as to what the requirements were, so they then turned to Missouri Enterprise, part of the MEP National Network™, for guidance.

Turnings Plus wanted to ensure they were meeting the requirements of their customers and were going to do what it took to achieve those requirements. Amber Terschluse, owner and CEO, “A quote we value in our business is by Theodore Roosevelt, 'Nothing worth having was ever achieved without effort.' This speaks to the life of business in general, without putting effort in, you can’t have success.”

Before the help from Missouri Enterprise and the AS9100 certification, we lost everything from one of our largest customers until we could obtain the certification. Working with you was a smooth process.
