commercial nuclearIntegrity lies at the heart of any organization, regardless of industry. Level of professionalism and perception of reliability are determined by the talent to remain flexible and operationally effective while consistently hitting expectations and maintaining the highest standards. Although particular standards of quality may vary by activity, there are essential service intangibles that remain inherently constant.

The International Organization for Standardization ensures universally recognized and accepted service standards worldwide. Headquartered in Switzerland, ISO reaches globally to develop, maintain, and administer voluntary sets of standards for products, services, and best practices. Covering virtually any trade, industry, size, or scope, ISO sets the bar for accepted standards of business professionalism.

At the top of numerous standards for various types of services, production, engineering, and manufacturing is ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems. An ISO 9001 designation provides a high level of uniform quality control specifications for any operation, public or private. Consistently meeting stringent requirements enables an organization, manufacturer, or service provider to deliver the absolute best product or service time after time and be recognized industry-wide.

In a similar vein, ISO AS9100 is a standardized quality management system covering the aerospace industry. Introduced in 1999 in America by the Society of Automotive Engineers and in Europe by the European Association of Aerospace Industries, AS9100 defines the most rigid and comprehensive requirements assuring quality and safety throughout space technologies and avionics.

The International Aerospace Quality Group drafted AS9100, and it sets the standards system–wide. AS9100 encompasses ISO 9000 as well as provides for additional requirements. To be able to do business in the industry of space aeronautics, an organization must be ISO 9000/ AS9100 compliant and specifically designated as such.

We fully recognize the benefit and necessity of following the AS9100 standards. Not only are we an AS9100C certified company, but we meet ISO9001:2000 certification as well. This certification is intended for use in any organization which designs, develops, manufactures, installs and/or services any product or provides any form of service. It provides a number of requirements which an organization needs to fulfill if it is to achieve customer satisfaction through consistent products and services which meet customer expectations.

Connectronics Corp. is a leading custom manufacturer of specialized connectors and interconnector systems with a heavy influence on the aerospace and avionics industries, as well as defense technologies. From research and development to design and fabrication, we produce some of the most durable and precise aerospace hardware found on earth.

This aerospace equipment is designed to operate within excruciatingly tight tolerances and to do so under extreme duress—subject to the most extreme environmental conditions imaginable. Aerospace engineering is a game of micro-, nano-, and even picometers. With the stakes so high and the line between success and failure so narrow, the strictest production standards possible must be met.
