Standex International Corporation has announced that its Standex Electronics/Magnetico business, a military-aerospace electronic component and electromechanical assembly manufacturer, has been SAE AS9100 certified by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG). SAE AS9100 certification is a globally recognized aerospace sector standard that defines the quality system requirements for suppliers to the aerospace industry.

The aerospace industry established the IAQG for the purpose of achieving significant improvements in quality and safety, and cost reductions. The organization includes representation from aerospace companies in the Americas, Asia/Pacific and Europe.

"Mapping our quality management system to meet the stringent requirements adopted by the international aerospace industry provides a number of benefits to our organization," said Standex Electronics President John Meeks.

"Achieving AS9100 certification demonstrates our commitment to delivering quality products and services to our current customers. It also strengthens our ability to win new customers worldwide in the aerospace market," he added. Also, AS9100 certification provides Standex with access to the best practices of the aerospace industry and should reduce the number of customer and third-party quality audits.
