Cindy, it was a pleasure to know you and to experience first- hand your vast Nadcap experience. Your “down to the ground” and practical approach took us from procedural to realistic and help us break away from any worries during our preparation for our first time CP audit.”– A.E.S., SPI QA Manager
I originally hired Cindy Klingler to help me revise our company FAA and Quality Manuals, (the final outcome was a complete FAA / AS9100 combine documentation package that was called “explosive” by an FAA Auditor). We have continued to work together for nearly three years, the changes go beyond compliance; there is a practicality to her methods that results in useful, easy to implement procedures. Her knowledge and expertise in the quality world is simply the best and I highly recommend her!”– D.R., Quality Manager
I would like to take an opportunity to offer a formal recommendation of services provided by The GWQ owned and operated by Cindy Klingler. Cindy started her career in the late 1970’s working at AnaCon Laboratories’, Inc. She effectively implemented operational and Administrative procedures, and all technical/quality documentation required at that time by military, aerospace and aircraft companies. She was instrumental in obtaining our Boeing approval and later in creating and implementing our Quality System which lead to our NADCAP accreditation.
Cindy was instrumental in upgrading our Quality System to meet the current Aerospace Standards. Thanks to her assistance AnaCon Laboratories, Inc. dba 1st Choice Consulting is again Nadcap Accredited and AS 9100 compliant.
Cindy is very knowledgeable with regard to Aerospace Level Quality System Requirements. She specializes in practical quality applications designed to bring Metal Finishing Companies (Chemical Processors) into full compliance. Cindy also has firsthand experience of the fundamentals of a Chemical Processing Laboratory and the quality systems required to maintain good analytical control.
I would recommend Cindy Klingler to any company in need of improving their quality system and/or efforts in obtaining Prime Contractor Approval (i.e. Boeing), ISO, AS or NADCAP accreditation.”– B.K., President and Owner
We first came to know Cindy Klingler while she was the Quality Manager for AnaCon Laboratories, Inc. We chose their service based on the Nadcap accreditation. We had a long running business relationship with Cindy and the lab.
We again contacted Cindy when we were pursuing our own Nadcap accreditation program. She had become an independent quality consultant, assisting the Metal Finishing Industry to meet varied quality requirements; including Nadcap.
Cindy joined our quality team that lacked experience in aerospace and defense industry requirements. She started with the most basic tenets of the Nadcap system and guided us through the maze of paperwork, changes needed in the quality system, testing and data recordings at each step of the process. Needless to say, it took lot of patience on her part but she persevered and we were able to obtain Nadcap Accreditation for our Aerospace Quality System in accordance with AC7004 and eleven special processes in accordance with AC7108 Chemical Processing.
We sincerely believe that, without Cindy’s knowledge, tenacity and patience, we would not have been able to achieve this accreditation in a timely manner.
We highly recommend her for any quality related programs.”
