J-Squared Technologies Inc., Mississauga ON, a 25-year-old Canadian owned and operated company with a business unit in the United States to support the North American electronics marketplace, has invested heavily in expanding its MRO services – initially targeted towards the MIL-Aero based customers.
In addition to its distribution business, J-Squared has been focused on supporting and supplying electronic products and services into the military, aerospace, industrial, energy, transportation, medical and communications market sectors.
Full MRO support services are customized to every client’s needs, including assembly, integration, prototyping, repair, rework and test. This provides ‘cradle to grave’ services and support for its customer’s end products utilizing J-Squared’s Integration and MRO facilities.
Value-added proposition supports customers to the ‘next level’
“This value-added proposition really helps us provide that next level of support for our customers,” says J-Squared VP marketing Maria Turavani.
The move is highlighted by a significant investment in a state of the art repair lab, furnished with best-in-class diagnostic and rework equipment. This includes a fully ESD compliant work environment.
To ensure that J-Squared enhances its capabilities to service the MIL-Aero market, the company has added senior staff members with a deep understanding of its inner workings. J-Squared is in the process of implementing AS9100C and Transport Canada AMO Certifications, while also being ISO 9001/2008 and Controlled Goods certified. A committed member of the aeronautics sector, J-Squared is an active member with the Ontario Aerospace Council (OAC), Women in Aerospace (WIA), and National Business Aviation Association (NBAA).
Expanding services to MIL-Aero customers
“We’re not coming in new to these sectors. We are adding the necessary resources and experienced staff to augment our support,” adds J-Squared president, Jeff Gibson.
The enviro-controlled facility is completely secure, ensuring IP protection to each and every customer, says Gibson. The firm also employs a specific anti-counterfeit policy, which assures that only valid components are used.
“It it very important that we can provide additional capabilities to enable our customers to receive complete solutions from J-Squared. Our goal is to support our customer’s products from inception to the end-of-life for each product,” Turavani says. With these additional capabilities new Mil-Aero customers are emerging from international markets, as well as increasing services to their existing customers within Canada.
J-Squared provides complete product lifecycle management support for its customers. Typically customers require a standard warranty (typically one year), extended warranty dependent on customer requirements and support services for legacy sustainment.
