Ronkonkoma, NY (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
Lintech Components has recently been audited by the Independent Distributors of Electronics Association (IDEA) and has been granted certification to their newly released QMS-9090-A Quality System Standard.
The standard, established for existing IDEA members, builds onto Lintech’s current AS9120 and ISO 9001 Quality Management System, adding requirements for the detection and mitigation of counterfeit electronic components. Since Lintech has maintained a robust counterfeit avoidance program for several years, the audit passed with no findings.
“Lintech is proud to be one of the first Independent Distributors to receive IDEA’s QMS 9090 certification. This certificate builds on to our already multi-layered quality management system, and is testimony to Lintech’s core philosophy of strong quality control and best practice solutions for our highly valued customers,” stated Ken Linden, President of Lintech Components.
