Paul Deehan, CEO AWS Electronics Group, comments: ‘Achievement of the AS9100 certification at our Slovakia facility has been a key target on our company roadmap over the last two years. Our commitment to a number of customers to gain this approval before the end of 2017 has been achieved in good time thanks to the hard work, support and focus of all those involved. I am immensely proud of our team in Slovakia for securing the accreditation through the first audit.’
