Delta Group Electronics' Arkansas Facility Earns AS9100 Registration


Delta Group Electronics, Inc. announced today that its Arkansas facility has received the highly-regarded AS9100 quality designation by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL).

Along with this certification, Delta Group has now earned 1509001:2008 certification at all of the company's five operations.

The ISO 9000 Series Standard is an internationally-recognized quality management system developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The ISO 9001:2008 registration defines the quality system requirements for a company to achieve the expectations of its customers and to provide a culture focused on continued quality improvement. Developed in 1997 by the American Aerospace Quality Group to promote quality standards across all aspects of air transportation, the AS9100 standard is directly aligned with the ISO 9001 requirements. The AS9100 registration contains additional requirements, clarification and interpretation of a company's quality system.

Delta Group Electronics initiated its quality certification process in 2000 and completed this first stage in 2001 by receiving ISO 9001:2000 designations at each of its then three facilities in New Mexico, California and Florida. In order to meet the needs of its customers and to enhance its overall quality system, Delta Group pursued the AS9100 upgrade such that the California, New Mexico and Arkansas facilities are now operating under this registration, with Florida and Texas operating under the ISO 9001:2008 registration. After receiving notice of the Arkansas designation, Tod Cummins, Delta Group's Corporate Quality Manager, commented that "the AS9100 certification for Arkansas highlights the company's long-term commitment to providing superior quality to our customers. The Arkansas staff should be commended for achieving the registration requirements of the AS9100 standard. This achievement allows us to objectively demonstrate our goal to exceed customer requirements and industry standards for quality product assembly."
