Omnetics Connector Corporation announces that their design, production and QA systems have been certified.
Minneapolis, MN (Vocus) November 9, 2009 -- Omnetics Connector Corporation, the leading manufacturer of miniature high-rel connectors, announced that their design, production and QA systems have been certified to the ISO 9001:2000 (w/design) & AS9100 Revision B, International Quality System Standard.
The company's entire quality system was audited and certified by Smithers Quality Assessments Inc. (SQA), a leading independent accredited registrar. Smithers is fully accredited both by the Dutch Council for Accreditation (RvA) and the American National Accreditation Body (ANAB) and is a member of the Independent Association of Accredited Registrars.
ISO9001:2000 combines three standards of 9001, 9002 and 9003 into one and focuses specifically on the design and development procedures.
AS9100 was designed to enhance ISO9001 by focusing on the more precise expectations and requirements of the aerospace industry. AS9100 certification is rapidly becoming a minimum requirement for doing business with many aerospace original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Aerospace OEM’s maintain high levels of liability for their product standard and failure to correctly handle parts and materials can directly affect product performance.
Comments Darren Bentley, Manager of Quality Assurance: “Achieving these qualifications show Omnetics on-going commitment to our product, the industry and most importantly our customers. By continually improving the effectiveness of our Quality Systems Omnetics is demonstrating an understanding of the customers needs for performance, on-time delivery and quality which will only strengthen our relationships.”
Omnetics was formed in 1984 to deliver rugged, reliable interconnect solutions for the most demanding industries. The company has a fully integrated design and manufacturing plant in Minneapolis, Minnesota USA, where it produces micro and nano miniature interconnect products, featuring COTS, Standards and Custom connectors for industries such as Military, Aerospace, Defense, Medical and other technology oriented OEMs.
