Precision connector and cable assembly distributor PEI-Genesis announced that its Southampton, United Kingdom, facility was recently certified to the AS9001C:2009 quality standard for the aerospace industry. The certification follows a two-year investment in preparation and audit processes, the company said. The UK facility joins PEI-Genesis’ Philadelphia headquarters and South Bend, Indiana, facilities in achieving the certification.
“This expanded AS9100C:2009 certification to our UK operation demonstrates our ongoing commitment to being a world-class supplier to the aerospace industry,” said Russ Dorwart, president and chief operating officer, PEI-Genesis. “This demanding endeavor forced us to reevaluate every process we use to develop, manufacture, and support our products and customers. As a result, we have expanded our excellent quality process to a truly world-class, global level, and we take great pride in our team that helped us accomplish this goal.”
AS9100C:2009 is a quality management standard within the aerospace industry. It includes all of the requirements of ISO 9001:2008 as well as additional measures, including documented systems for controlling the processes used to develop, manufacture, and sell product.
In a separate announcement, the distributor said it has added Amphenol’s Rhino series connectors to its product line up. The Rhino series combines the benefits of MIL-DTL-38999 Series III circular connectors with low resistance hyperbolic RADSOK contacts, extending the boundaries of high-power connector technology. The connectors satisfy market requirements for high power and voltage applications in harsh environments and are designed to meet the latest military and industrial specifications.
