General Microcircuits, Inc. (GMI) Earns Certification as Qualified Manufacturer to IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610

Mar 09, 2015

IPC's Validation Services Program has awarded an IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) to General Microcircuits, Inc. (GMI), an electronics manufacturing company based out of Mooresville. N.C. GMI provides circuit board and integrated assemblies to manufacturers in diverse industries. To earn the QML, GMI successfully completed an intensive audit based on two of IPC's foremost standards: IPC

J-STD-001, Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies and IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies.

GMI met or exceeded the electronics industry’s Class 2 testing requirements for dedicated service electronic products. As a result, the company is now listed as an IPC trusted source capable of manufacturing in accordance with industry best practices. GMI and other trusted sources of suppliers can be found on IPC's QML/QPL (Qualified Product Listing) database at www.ipcvalidation.org.

Delivering quality assemblies on-time, every time, and at an optimal cost is no longer enough. Today’s discerning customers expect value to be qualified and quantified,” said David G. Dalton, president/CEO of General Microcircuits, Inc. “Systems need to be robust, integrated, and all aspects of an EMS provider’s operation must be gauged and measured. IPC’s Validation Services provides a framework to ensure an EMS company is meeting the criteria to provide value to its customers, its associates, its suppliers, and itself.”  

  “We looked at IPC’s Validation Services initiative in two layers. First, would it bring value to our operations? Second, would it be a differentiator for potential customers when comparing us to other EMS providers? Going through the Validation Services audit certainly added value,” added Nick Harris, vice president of global operations of General Microcircuits, Inc.

IPC's Validations Services QPL/QML Program was developed to promote supply chain verification. It also provides auditing and certification of electronics companies' products, and identifies processes which conform to IPC standards.

"GMI has differentiated itself from the competition by becoming part of IPC's global network of trusted industry sources," said Randy Cherry, IPC director of Validation Services. "We are pleased to recognize GMI as the newest member of trusted QML suppliers."
