In addition to existing ISO9001, ISO14001 and IATF16949 certifications, Aspocomp has now been accredited with AS9100 certificate.

AS9100 is the international Quality Management System standard for the Aviation, Space and Defense industry. AS9100 is developed and managed by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG)

AS9100 certificate shows commitment to demanding quality requirements of our aerospace customers and also benefits our other customers within other industries. Meeting these quality standards does not only show customers that our products are safe and reliable, it also ensures that our processes and controls are effective.

“We are one of few European PCB manufacturers that hold AS9100 certificate and it reinforces our strategic intent to be a leading edge PCB manufacturer for demanding technologies. Our team has done a very good effort in getting the certification done for the benefit of our customers,” comments Mikko Montonen, President and the CEO of Aspocomp Group. 

Quality manager, Antti Kangas recounts our journey to certification: “We started the process in 2019 by acquiring the 54 page documentation and making a gap analysis on our existing quality systems. Along the way we consulted other certified companies, used a little bit help from consultants and finally finished the Stage 2 audit in March 2021.”
