URtech Manufacturing, a North American provider of end-to-end Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS), is pleased to announce the certification of its Florida facility’s Quality Management System to AS9100D. With this milestone, together with its ISO9001 and ISO13485 certifications and ITAR registration, URtech’s Florida facility has the appropriate, consensus-driven quality benchmarks to serve the aviation, space and defense industries.
URtech manufactures and integrates electronics for a diverse range of end markets, with each industry having specific quality and traceability requirements. At the core of URtech the company provides manufacturing processes and quality systems that support industry compliance with a strong foundation of high quality and repeatable manufacturing and test.
Michael Wallace, VP of Business Development & Customer Programs stated, “The enhanced QMS at our Florida facility allows us to efficiently provide component traceability, assembly traceability, FAI reporting and other critical device record keeping activities for our defense, aerospace and avionics customers.”
AS9100 is an aerospace standard based on the ISO 9001 quality system requirements, adding more stringent requirements specific to the aviation, space and defense industries. The standard takes the requirements of ISO 9001 and supplements them with additional quality system requirements, which are established by the aerospace industry in order to satisfy DND, DOD, NASA and FAA quality requirements.
The new AS9100D revision to the standard adds additional requirements addressing detailed process descriptions and the risks and opportunities associated with their operation; outside interested third party influences; human factors; and professional ethics.
URtech has manufacturing sites in Toronto, Canada and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, managing its mechanicals, PCB and custom component supplier community for non-ITAR accounts. For more information, visit www.urtechmfg.com.
