Horsham, PA, December 6, 2013—EFE Laboratories, Philadelphia’s oldest contract manufacturer and OEM of electromechanical software and engineering solutions for communications, industrial controls, aerospace, and medical device industries, announced today that the company is now AS9100C certified. The AS9100C is the international management system standard for the aviation, space and defense industries. The certification provides EFE Laboratories with a comprehensive quality system for providing safe and reliable products in a key growth market where there is rising demand.
The AS9100C designation is considered the aerospace industry gold standard for quality assurance, offered only to organizations that develop and produce aviation, space and defense products while demonstrating strict adherence to quality, reliability and safety standards. It ensures that the company has passed rigorous evaluations of its manufacturing processes to achieve the standard of quality required. All major Aerospace regulators including the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the National Aerospace and Space Administration (NASA) endorse the current version of AS9100, Revision C.
“Achieving the AS9100C certification is part of our ongoing effort to evolve, grow and reinforce our existing ISO quality systems in support of our customer base,” says Kip Anthony, President and CEO of EFE Laboratories. “We recognize a growing demand in the aerospace industry and have taken the necessary steps to become an implicitly trusted manufacturer of these products and parts. EFE welcomes any challenge presented to us by current or prospective clients, and look forward to reaching our next goal.”
Aerospace companies are known for having some of the most demanding regulatory requirements in manufacturing. Not only did EFE Laboratories achieve the AS9100C certification without findings, but the company is also one of the few in the region to certify its design team, which is mandatory for any aerospace design projects.
With many of the nation’s leading aerospace manufacturers in the Philadelphia region, including Lockheed Martin, Sikorsky, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, and more, EFE Laboratories’ AS9100C certification puts the company in a prime position for growth.
EFE Laboratories offers build-to-suit capital equipment such as box builds, control panels and cable harnesses. EFE relies on cutting-edge skills and industry-leading expertise to meet the ever-changing electrical and electromechanical assembly challenges of its clients. Additional capabilities include programming, design engineering, and providing operations support to startups and growing manufacturing enterprises such as Haliburon, Ingersoll Rand and General Electric.
