Quality

Total Quality Control

Offering you the very highest in quality products and services isn't a goal; it's standard operating procedure.

When it comes to contract manufacturing, there is no compromising on quality. Our commitment to quality is reflected in every facet of our operation. From our state-of-the-art equipment to our highly skilled SMT and Hand Soldering Teams, we are certified and trained by NASA and the IPC to meet the following industry and government standards. Our adherence to these standards provides our customers with the assurance they need to trust us with their most costly and complex assemblies. Other companies may claim to be compliant, but being certified entails defining, documenting, measuring and maintaining a complete system to ensure the quality you expect and deserve is there.
