Sanmina-SCI Corporation, a leading manufacturing solutions company making some of the world’s most complex and valuable electronic and mechanical products, today announced that its India Design Center (IDC) located in the Madras Special Economic Zone (MEPZ) has been accredited with AS9100-Rev C for Avionics Systems and ISO 9001-2008 Certification.
These certifications further enhance Sanmina-SCI’s capabilities to support the complex requirements of the defense aviation and space markets. Revision C broadens the definitions of AS9100 criteria, creating more stringent controls throughout the manufacturing process and ensuring greater safety, efficiency and customer satisfaction along the entire product lifecycle.
“The aviation market is experiencing significant growth in India and most Tier I and Tier II companies are increasingly outsourcing to India to take advantage of incentives offered by the Indian government,” said Srinivasa Moorthy, vice president of Engineering and Head of the Sanmina-SCI India Design Center in Chennai. “The AS9100 certification enables us to provide our customers with the most advanced product customization services and total product lifecycle management. In addition, sustaining engineering services are available. These services have become important due to rapid obsolescence of some components and the issue of counterfeit components.”
