Lane Electronics, leaders in the assembly and supply of electrical and electronic connector products and systems for the aerospace and defence industry, announces that it has met the requirements needed for approval to AS9120.

AS9120 is specifically applicable to Distributors that supply product to the Aviation/Space/Defence industries and incorporates the requirements of IS0 9001:2008 Quality Management System (QMS).

According to Lane’s Managing Director Simon Hammerton, AS9120 is for those organisations that procure parts, materials and assemblies and then sell them to aerospace manufacturers and suppliers throughout the world.

“Meeting a new standard like AS9120 is testament to the management systems we have in place for the military and aerospace industries and will allow our customers in these high reliability sectors to have full confidence in our ability to supply components and assemblies that meet these exacting standards” adds Hammerton.
