Mercury Systems Receives AS9100 Certification at Multiple Sites
ANDOVER, Mass. - Aug. 30, 2017 - Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com) announced that it recently received Aerospace Standard 9100 (AS9100) certification for its Mercury Defense Systems Advanced Design Centers located in Cypress, Calif., West Lafayette, Ind. and Huntsville, Ala., as well as its headquarters facility in Andover, Mass. These recent certifications add to the existing certifications the Company currently holds at many of its sites in the U.S. and Europe.
The aerospace and defense industry is highly regulated and demands the highest level of quality standards for the development and manufacture of products. Established by the International Aerospace Quality Group in 1999, the AS9100 Quality Management System (QMS) standard is recognized globally and has been widely adopted across the aerospace and defense industry to promote quality, safety and continuous product and process improvement. Mercury’s AS9100 certification validates that the Company has the necessary processes in place to meet the aerospace industry’s demand for safe, reliable products that meet or exceed the requirements of customers and regulatory authorities.
“These recent certifications are significant milestones for Mercury,” said Dean Holman, Senior Director, Global Mission Assurance. “The AS9100 certification is the standard to which aerospace and defense suppliers are measured, and it reflects the continuous improvement efforts and commitments made by our employees to deliver the highest quality engineering and manufacturing solutions. These certifications confirm that our product development along with our design and manufacturing processes meet the stringent requirements of the aerospace and defense industry. Achieving and maintaining AS9100 certification, coupled with our Zero Defect Initiative, maximizes Mercury's ability to deliver product of the highest quality to our customers in a timely manner.”
Mercury Systems is currently in the process of pursuing AS9100 certification at its West Caldwell, NJ Advanced Microelectronics Centers, with certification targeted to be completed before the end of the Company’s fiscal year 2018.
