Sanmina-SCI Gets Defense Department Certification

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Sanmina-SCI Corporation (Nasdaq: SANM), a leading manufacturing solutions company making some of the world's most complex and valuable electronic and mechanical products, today announced it has successfully achieved certification and qualification to Military Performance Specification MIL-PRF-31032 for the Owego, New York, printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing facility. This achievement recognizes Sanmina-SCI's best-in-class manufacturing processes, and its ability to meet the stringent requirements for products developed for the military. The certificate was awarded by the Defense Logistics Agency Defense Supply Center in Columbus, Ohio, a division of the Department of Defense.

The Sanmina-SCI Owego facility provides fabrication of complex, multi-layer PCBs, including quickturn prototyping, new product introduction (NPI), gateway manufacturing and volume production. In order to achieve MIL-SPEC, the Owego facility created an executive-level technical review board to supervise production of all military products, implemented special training in its micro sectioning labs, converted its internal documentation to match the MIL-SPEC criteria, and utilized the verification and certification of a third-party lab to ensure the highest integrity.

“Sanmina-SCI's understanding of the sensitive distinctions necessary to design and manufacture mission-critical military products has enabled us to create trusted partnerships with our defense and aerospace customers,” said Steve Bruton, President & General Manager, Sanmina-SCI PCB Fabrication. “This latest accomplishment highlights the state-of-the-art quality systems in our Owego operations and enables us to ensure the highest standard of product reliability for our armed forces.”

To be MIL-SPEC certified, products must be manufactured in the United States and pass a rigorous laboratory analysis. In addition to Owego, Sanmina-SCI's San Jose and Costa Mesa, California facilities are also MIL-PRF-31032 certified, adding to the company's status as one of the premier electronic manufacturing companies for defense and aerospace Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in the country.

Sanmina-SCI makes some of the most complex and valuable electronic and mechanical products in the world, manufacturing mission-critical products. The company's global footprint and complete end-to-end supply chain solutions allow OEMs to compete effectively in today's marketplace.
