Electronics component distributor Allied Electronics, Fort Worth TX, has received its AS9102A certification, is a quality management standard specifically designed to enhance and preserve the integrity of the supply chain for stocking distributors who supply products to customers within the aerospace industry.
“Allied is committed to maintaining the highest levels of integrity within the supply chain on behalf of our customers,” says Kenneth Bradley, Allied VP of supply chain & operations. “This new standard builds upon, and incorporates the requirements of ISO 9001:2008, a certification that we’ve held for some time. This, however, sets an even higher bar for supply chain integrity, and is something that customers in the Aviation, Space and Defense industries increasingly seek when determining which suppliers to work with.
Gaining AS9120A certification involved a complete review of Allied’s Quality Management System processes and documentation to ensure that all the requirements within the standard were met. After completing the process, Allied was awarded its certificate in August, 2014.
“Allied has always focused on providing our customers with the highest possible quality in terms of both products and services,” Bradley adds, “and this certification is one more concrete example of that commitment.”
