Qualification is an integral part of our business. It is a guarantee of our seriousness and of the high quality of our products. We qualify our suppliers, we qualify purchased parts and components, we qualify our processes and we qualify parts, subassemblies and products we manufacture. We test, validate and qualify so much that they account for more than 50% of our product price.
Starting with the design phase, all our products and components are tested rigorously against customer requirements, specifications, industry standards, regulations, robustness and overall quality.
Many qualifications are managed in-house with our own test equipment. However, when we don’t have the tools or the expertise to carry out some special tests, we work with a network of partners and laboratories, as well as accredited labs for the compliance to international standards, norms or regulations.
