Micross Components' UK Site Receives BS EN 9100:2009/AS 9100 Rev. C Quality Certification

(PresseBox) (Crewe, England, ) Micross Components, a leading global provider of specialty electronic solutions, is pleased to announce that the quality management system (QMS) at its Crewe facility has achieved the next level in aerospace certification, having qualified to the standards of BS EN 9100:2009, also known as AS 9100 Revision C. The Crewe facility, which specializes in robotic solder exchange (GEIA compliant), BGA rework and reballing, and counterfeit detection, is one of three Micross sites to meet the updated standard. The other two facilities are located in the United States in Austin, TX, and Orlando, FL.

Standard BS EN 9100 is based upon international quality standard ISO 9001 and is specific to the aerospace industry. The 2009 revision expanded its scope to ensure application across the defense, space and aviation industries and placed increased emphasis on product and process improvement, as well as on-time and on-quality deliveries.

"Two factors drove our upgrade to the 2009 requirements," says Jamie Knight, Managing Director of Products and Services in the UK, "our long-standing commitment to our mil-aero customers and our company-wide commitment to continuous process improvement. The nature of our products and the programs and systems we support demands performance and reliability under the most extreme conditions. Achieving certification to the latest standard underscores our ability to meet the stringent requirements of our customers and the end customers they serve, enhancing our value to both."

The Crewe facility is one of two Micross production facilities based in the UK. The other facility, which is located in Norwich and performs up-rating of electronics components, die processing, and environmental test and failure analysis, is currently in the process of seeking qualification of its QMS to BS EN 9100:2009. The latest quality certificates for all facilities are posted on the Micross website at www.micross.com.
