IPC's Validation Services Program has announced Alternative Manufacturing Inc.'s (AMI) IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) recertification. AMI is an electronics contract manufacturing company based in Winthrop, Maine and provides PCB assembly, wire harness production, and product assembly for a variety of industries. To earn recertification of the QML, AMI successfully completed an intensive audit based on two of IPC's foremost standards: IPC J-STD-001, Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies and IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies.

AMI met or exceeded the electronics industry’s Class 2 testing requirements for dedicated service electronic products. As a result, the company maintains its listing as an IPC trusted source capable of manufacturing in accordance with industry best practices. AMI as a trusted supplier source can be found on IPC's QML/QPL (Qualified Product Listing) database at www.ipcvalidation.org.

“The recertification process validates our commitment to excellence throughout the entire manufacturing process and acknowledges the efforts of each AMI employee owner,” said Greg Boyd, AMI president and CEO. “Each employee not only met but exceeded the expectations set forth by the IPC QML. By achieving and maintaining certification, our current and future customers can be confident in their choice to partner with AMI to support their manufacturing requirements.”

IPC's Validations Services QPL/QML Program was developed to promote supply chain verification. It also provides auditing and certification of electronics companies' products and identifies processes which conform to IPC standards.

"By recertifying, AMI has differentiated itself from the competition by continuing to be part of IPC's global network of trusted industry sources," said Randy Cherry, IPC director of Validation Services. "We are pleased to recognize AMI in this great achievement."
