Achievement of the Highest Industry Quality Certification Establishes Tier One Status
The company announced its official certification to the IATF 16949 standard placing AER at the apex of automotive industry quality standards. With demand for electronic remanufacturing service on a steady rise, it has become essential for automakers and suppliers to have a tier one vendor option available. With the acquisition of the IATF 16949 certification, AER now holds equivalent quality standards to the nation’s top original equipment manufacturers (OEM’s).
“With the remanufacturing market becoming increasingly saturated with electronic service centers that do not qualify themselves to the same standards as the OEM’s we serve, it became clear to us that it was time to obtain the highest possible quality certification to set the standard in our industry” said Kim Quick, CEO of AER Technologies. Quick added that “Our customers demand quality that meets or exceeds that of new, and that’s what they’ll get with AER remanufactured product.”
IATF 16949 is the International Standard for Automotive Quality Management Systems. The standard was developed by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) and approved for publication by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Certified organizations demonstrate a process-oriented quality management system that allows for continual improvement, defect prevention and reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain.
AER Technologies, Inc., established in 1947, takes pride in being the highest quality source for automotive electronics remanufacturing and circuit board rework in the United States.
