Aero Hardware & Parts Company, Inc. was founded in 1963 by Al Maiolo. Our company began with five employees and one facility in New Rochelle, New York. Today, we are one of the leading distributors in the world of spare parts, AN, MS, NAS and Boeing hardware, as well as Chemicals (sealants, coatings, paints, hazardous and non-hazardous) and specialty products.
As a worldwide supplier of hardware and chemicals for commercial and military aircraft, Aero Hardware recognizes the need to be extremely quality conscious in every aspect of our operation. For many years we maintained an excellent quality and delivery record under MIL-I-45208. In 1996 we embarked on an effort to become certified to the ISO 9002 quality standard. We were ISO certified in February of 1997 and since then we have passed each annual audit by a leading independent registrar. In March of 2003, in order to ensure that our quality practices conformed to recognized industry standards, we successfully completed a lengthy process to become certified to the new ISO 9001:2000 standard. Over the last 5 years we have also been audited to, and found compliant with, the quality requirements of AS 9100:2001, AS9120 and FAA Advisory Circular AC-00-56. Our downloadable Quality Certifications – one for AS9120, one for AC-00-56 – are available by clicking the NQA logo icons.
