IPC's Validation Services Program has awarded an IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) to Alternative Manufacturing, Inc.

To earn the QML, AMI 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.

AMI 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. AMI and other trusted sources of suppliers can be found on IPC's QML/QPL (Qualified Product Listing) database at www.ipcvalidation.org.

AMI is very proud of achieving IPC validation to J-STD-001. For years, IPC standards have been AMI’s guidelines for workmanship quality,” said Kim Vandermeulen, CEO of AMI. “With this third-party validation, we can convincingly convey to AMI’s customers that the processes and workmanship employed are meeting or exceeding industry standards.  AMI is pleased to achieve this milestone and establish itself on the leading edge among EMS providers in this way.”
