MarVac Assemblies Earns IPC QML


Reading time ( words)

IPC's Validation Services Program has awarded an IPC/WHMA-A-620 Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) Class 2, to MarVac Assemblies, a value-added division of Marsh Electronics, Inc., located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Following an initial audit by IPC, MarVac Assemblies becomes one of the IPC trusted sources and suppliers meeting the stringent requirements of the Qualified Manufacturing Listing (QML) based on one of IPC's foremost standards: IPC/WHMA-A-620, Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies.

MarVac Assemblies contacted IPC to review its manufacturing processes using the IPC Standard Gap Analysis (SGA) program in December 2018. Through the SGA program, the wire assembly manufacturer looked to improve its production methods before moving to the IPC Validation Services QML recognition program.

During the IPC Validation Services QML audit in May 2019, MarVac Assemblies met or exceeded the requirements for the electronics industry’s rigorous classification, Class 2, which is intended for dedicated service electronics products. The company is now listed and recognized as an IPC trusted source capable of manufacturing in accordance with industry best practices.

“MarVac Assemblies is excited to have achieved the QML recognition from IPC,” said Steve Banovich, MarVac Assemblies manager. “Beginning with the IPC SGA, we looked at going through the validation process not only as another way to bring value to our current customers, but that same value to our new customers. IPC Validation Services has helped us achieve the value our customers expect to see.”

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

"Different from other audit programs, IPC's Validation Services Programs uniquely provides technical and in-depth assessments of products and processes in accordance with IPC standards," said Randy Cherry, IPC director of Validation Services. "We are pleased to especially recognize MarVac Assemblies for becoming a member of IPC's network of trusted QML suppliers."
