AURORA, Colo.—Advanced Assembly, a provider of quick-turn PCB assembly services, has received the AS9100D certification. The certification was awarded after an extensive audit conducted by NQA, a division of NTS, the company said in a release.

AS9100D is the quality standard for organizations that design and manufacture products — including parts, components, and assemblies — for the aerospace industry. Developed by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG), AS9100D provides quality management system requirements and indicates that a company is dedicated to improved quality, cost, delivery, and performance.

“Advanced Assembly is extremely proud to have achieved the AS9100D certification, which provides third-party validation of our commitment to providing the highest quality products and services,” said Lawrence Davis, founder and CEO of Advanced Assembly, in a statement.

Advanced Assembly has extensive experience working with aerospace and defense companies on prototype and low-volume quantity projects. The company counts “six of the top 10 aerospace and defense companies in the United States” as current customers. But the AS9100D certification expands the scope of projects that Advanced Assembly can assemble in its U.S.-based manufacturing facility, the company said.

“This is a tremendous accomplishment for our teams and the result of our unwavering focus on quality,” explained Jorge Ramos, quality assurance manager at Advanced Assembly, in the release. “The AS9100 certification proves we have the systems in place to deliver high-quality, assembled circuit boards, as well as a continual improvement process that will help us identify and eliminate problems in the future.”
