As it related to our offshore manufacturing , we utilize only facilities that are ISO 9001:2008 certified, and in some cases may include ROHS, TS16949, and other certifications. El-Com Systems performs source inspections and verification for all shipments from our offshore manufacturing facilities, followed by a secondary inspection per a defined AQL, at our facility in North America
El-Com guarantees our product and takes 100% responsibility for the quality, workmanship, and on-time delivery. With our duplicate capabilities in our offshore and local facilities, in the event that there are any problems and/or changes related to products manufactured at our offshore factories, we are able to modify, repair, or rework the product quickly in our Garden Grove, California facility, rather than ship it back to the point of origin and wait for a replacement. This greatly benefits our customers and important programs, by reducing the risks of delays.
