VIRTEX Earns AS9100 Certification in Austin, Texas, Facility


Reading time ( words)

VIRTEX has been certified to the AS9100 Rev. D quality management standard at their Austin, Texas, facility. This certification pertains to the aviation, space and defense quality standards and signifies VIRTEX's ongoing commitment to serving their customers in a market with exceedingly stringent industry requirements.

Adding the AS9100 certification to the Austin location strengthens VIRTEX's competitive position and is a testament to their commitment to quality. Adding this certification to their already-proven experience comes at a perfect time, as the Army Futures Command announced they were moving to Austin this past December. AS9100 is the international quality management system standard for the Aerospace, Space and Defense (AS&D) industries and AS9100 Rev. D is the most current standard. The standard provides manufacturing suppliers with a comprehensive quality system for providing safe and reliable products. AS9100 is managed by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) and based upon ISO 9001.

"VIRTEX has a long and proud history of being certified to the most rigorous standards like ISO13485 and 21 CFR 820 for the medical industry. Adding AS9100 certification is a natural and required progression, given our strong presence as an electronic manufacturing service provider (EMS) in the military aerospace and defense markets," said Brad Heath, president and CEO of VIRTEX. "Texas boasts the second-largest aerospace and defense market in the country, so it is critical that we can continue to support our A&D customers in other geographic regions in their Texas subsidiaries. To do that, we needed to meet the stringent certification requirements of AS9100. We intend for VIRTEX to be the go-to leader in the Texas aerospace and defense EMS market and this is a mark of our commitment."

R&D Takes Back Seat Amidst Chip Shortage—But It Shouldn’t

12/08/2022 | Malcolm Thompson, NextFlex
As the global chip shortage continues, companies may be tempted to put research and development on the backburner to conserve capital and prioritize production. A primary area of focus has been on increasing production capabilities to meet demand. In this drive to increase capacity, R&D has fallen to the wayside as some companies consider scaling back to refocus on the expansion of manufacturing capacity at current technology nodes. This is a hard choice to make for any company, and even R&D giants like Apple, known for its dedicated investments in innovation, have had to cut R&D budgets below original projections.
