Reading time ( words)

Naprotek, Inc., a provider of electronic manufacturing services, has successfully renewed its AS9100D certification. With this milestone, together with the ISO 9001:2015 certification, Naprotek maintains the appropriate, consensus-driven quality benchmarks to serve the aviation, space and defense industries.

“Naprotek has been a consistent force in the EMS industry, providing Class III manufacturing to the Mil/Aero industry for more than 24 years, with approximately 36 percent of our business in the Mil/Aero space year-over-year,” stated Jayne Carthy, director of strategic business development. “We take great pride in renewing our AS9100D certificate and supporting the growth and long-term relationship with our customer base.”

AS9100 is an aerospace standard based on the ISO 9001 quality system requirements, adding more stringent requirements specific to the aviation, space and defense industry. The standard takes the requirements of ISO 9001 and supplements them with additional quality system requirements, which are established by the aerospace industry in order to satisfy DoD, NASA and FAA quality requirements.

The intent of the standard is to establish a single quality management system for use within the aerospace industry. The new AS9100D revision to the standard adds additional requirements addressing detailed process descriptions and the risks and opportunities associated with their operation; outside interested third party influences; human factors; and professional ethics.

In addition to its AS9100D certification, Naprotek is certified to ISO 13485:2016, ISO 9001:2015, IPC-A-610, IPC-J-STD-001, IPC-7711/7721 and ITAR registered.

Naprotek sets the standard for high-quality prototypes and Made-in-America production. The company specializes in mission critical products, and its processes and systems are focused on delivering award-winning quality.

Thriving Through Greater EMS Collaboration

08/23/2022 | Chris Peters, USPAE
Events of the past two years have clearly demonstrated the value of strong trading relationships. When materials become constrained, as in the recent microchip shortage or any of the pandemic-driven supply chain snafus, the companies that have those materials have a choice to make. Which customers will be put at the front of the line, and which will be placed at the rear? Too often, company executives assume that since they are a large buyer, they automatically will be prioritized when supplies are constrained. Research has shown that this is not always the case, and that assumption can leave a company in a weakened position.

IPC Mexico Continues to Grow

07/20/2022 | Barry Matties and Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
IPC Mexico has been growing for the past few years, and it’s no wonder: Mexico has become a major hub in the world of PCB manufacturing, spurred in part by reshoring as companies pulled work back from China during the pandemic. As the country’s maquiladoras thrived, IPC began expanding the Mexican educational and training operations, and the group recently named Lorena Villanueva as director of IPC Mexico. Andy Shaughnessy and Barry Matties recently spoke with Lorena and IPC Vice President of Education David Hernandez about IPC Mexico’s growth, as well as the office’s plans to provide PCB manufacturers the training resources they need to succeed.
