Company Continues Multi-Disciplinary Initiatives for Organizational Excellence
AS9100 is an international aerospace standard governed by the International Aerospace Quality Group, which is composed of three primary regional entities, the Americas Aerospace Quality Group, the European Aerospace Quality Group and the Asia Pacific Aerospace Quality Group. This certification was granted after an extensive audit of Maxwell's Microelectronics unit verified that it meets aerospace industry-specific quality assurance standards for design, development, production, installation and servicing.
Michael Everett, Maxwell's Vice President, Technology Systems, said that the company is committed to continuous quality improvement across all of its product lines, and has created an internal quality infrastructure and culture that facilitate compliance with the requirements of such certification activities. He noted that the underpinnings of Maxwell's strong quality system are common to most certification standards.
"Standards such as these clarify for Maxwell what is necessary to conform to each industry's specific expectations and allow for the creation of a generalized quality system structure that is consistent with those requirements and expectations," Everett said. "By complying with the AS-9100 protocols, we enable our customers to reduce the amount of individual qualification and documentation activity they need to conduct to assure themselves of our qualifications as a vendor. The certification opens doors for Maxwell and our customers and facilitates utilization of our products with confidence in their quality."
