The aerospace industry continues to expand dramatically and has become an increasingly significant part of Virtium’s business. Our customers in aerospace are understandably demanding and exacting in their needs for powerful, secure and reliable solid-state storage and memory products. Moreover, they need to be assured that Virtium adherers to the highest standards of quality management established for the aerospace ecosystem.
Virtium has proudly adhered to those high standards for many years, though now we’ve upped our game: We’ve achieved ISO/AS9100 Rev C (AS9100C) compliance, a widely adopted standard for quality management for the aerospace industry. (You can view the certificate of registration here.) This achievement gives aerospace-systems makers the assurance that the processes by which we design and manufacture our industrial-grade SSDs and memory meet the stringent standards established by the International Aerospace Quality Group.
Our AS9100C compliance is a result of significant investment and several months of implementing further quality assurance protocols across the Virtium’s existing ISO 9001-compliant manufacturing and distribution operations.
This AS9100C compliance demonstrates Virtium’s commitment to continuous quality improvement and investments in the necessary systems and infrastructure to ensure the highest product quality for all of our storage and memory solutions. Virtium continues to forge lasting relationships with not only tier-one OEMs, but also all of those in the value chain of this market sector. The AS9100C compliance provides Virtium with a lasting competitive advantage and reassures end users of the high quality of Virtium’s industrial/embedded storage and memory solutions.
Eddie Martinez, Virtium’s director of quality and project sponsor, summed up our newly earned compliance nicely: “This achievement is both exciting for our company and one that will benefit all customers and markets we serve.”
We couldn’t agree more, Eddie!
