ECCO (Electronic Connector Co.) a leading interconnect solutions provider, announced that it has been granted AS9100C certification for its quality system as an assembler of electronic connectors and related components.
Located in Chicago, Illinois, ECCO is an authorized partner of leading electronic suppliers that provides products and value added assembly services to OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and End Users in many high reliability industries such as; Aerospace, Military/Defense, Energy, Industrial, Medical, & Transportation, as well as to the U.S. Government.
“This is a great indication of ECCO’s commitment to quality and ongoing improvements in support of our customers” stated Kevin Hayes-Quality Manager at Electronic Connector Co. “While we have supported Aerospace customers indirectly for years, this now allows us to directly support Tier 1 companies such as Rockwell Collins and Boeing for production supply,” added Kevin.
“AS9100C Quality Certification has transitioned from being a unique operational differentiator into an Industry-Wide Aerospace requirement. Quality Systems expectations within the industry have standardized around the AES Quality Processes, so any business that wants to effectively compete in this space will continually meet and exceed the AS9100C guidelines.”
