We are delighted to share some exciting news that showcases our unwavering commitment to the highest standards of quality in the electronic components industry. After months of meticulous preparation, we are proud to announce that our company has achieved the highly regarded AS9120B accreditation for electronic components distribution. This achievement highlights our relentless pursuit of excellence and our commitment to providing our customers with the highest quality products and services.

Understanding AS9120B for Electronic Components

AS9120B is an internationally recognised quality management standard specifically tailored for distributors in the aerospace, defence and space sectors, which includes electronic components. This accreditation builds upon ISO 9001:2015 with additional aerospace, defence and space industry-specific requirements, with a particular focus on counterfeit mitigation, risk management, compliance, training, reliability, and traceability of electronic components. By achieving AS9120B accreditation, we have demonstrated our dedication to maintaining the highest standards in distribution to these sectors.

Key Benefits of AS9120B Accreditation

Superior Quality Assurance: AS9120B accreditation provides a robust framework for quality management systems, ensuring that our company adheres to strict quality control processes throughout the distribution of electronic components. We have undergone extensive audits and assessments to ensure our compliance with the stringent requirements of this accreditation. By implementing AS9120B, we can guarantee that our customers receive electronic components of the highest quality, minimising the risk of defects and ensuring their reliability in critical aerospace, defence and space applications.

Trusted Partnerships: Achieving AS9120B accreditation strengthens our position as a trusted partner within these sectors. It reinforces our commitment to quality, safety, and reliability, assuring our customers and partners that we meet or exceed the stringent industry standards. Our accredited status establishes a foundation of trust and confidence, enabling us to build strong and mutually beneficial partnerships with manufacturers, OEMs, and other stakeholders in the aerospace, defence and space sectors.

Enhanced Traceability: The AS9120B standard places significant emphasis on traceability, which is of utmost importance in these sectors. Our accreditation ensures that we maintain precise records and tracking systems for all electronic components, enabling us to trace the origin and history of each component throughout the supply chain. This traceability enhances product reliability and provides crucial information in case of any safety or regulatory concerns.

Continuous Improvement: AS9120B accreditation is another milestone in our journey towards continuous improvement. With this accreditation in place, we are committed to ongoing refinement and enhancement of our processes, ensuring that we stay at the forefront of industry developments and best practices. By continually improving our operations, we aim to exceed customer expectations, deliver superior service, and drive innovation within the electronic components distribution sector.
