Ventec International Group Co., Ltd., a world leader in the production of polyimide & high reliability epoxy laminates and prepregs and specialist provider of thermal management and IMS solutions, has announced that the company headquarters in Suzhou has successfully been re-certified with AS9100 Revision D in accordance with the Aerospace Supplier Quality System Certification Scheme EN 9104-001:2103 by Bureau Veritas Certification.
Both Ventec’s China and UK facilities are certified to AS9100 Revision D quality standard, providing OEM’s and PCB fabrication customers servicing the aviation, space and defense industries access to a fully accredited supply chain for high reliability laminates and prepregs.
The AS9100-D re-certification follows the award of a further critical quality certification last year when Ventec received International Automotive Task Force (IATF) 16949:2016 certification which denotes requirements for a quality management system for organizations within the automotive industry.
To qualify and meet the strict certification criteria of both certifications, Ventec’s material manufacturing & supply processes undergo a thorough assessment for stringent aerospace and automotive requirements. Attaining and maintaining certification is critical to Ventec’s mission to consistently offer aerospace- and automotive-grade materials to the market.
“Quality management certifications reflect our commitment to meet and exceed the increasingly stringent industry requirements for aerospace- and automotive-related products. Our customers can rest assured that our manufacturing processes & supply chains consistently meet their strictest requirements and expectations. Going through the extremely rigorous certification processes validates our leading position as a supplier of superior quality and reliable PCB materials in all business segments that we are engaged in,” said Mark Goodwin, COO.
From manufacture through fabrication and global delivery, Ventec's high quality product portfolio of polyimides, high reliability FR4, tec-speed range of high speed/low loss materials and tec-thermal range of IMS materials are all covered by the accreditations.

The British Motor Museum in Warwickshire, housing the world's largest collection of historic British cars, was venue for the 2022 Annual Symposium of the Institute of Circuit Technology on June 8, which attracted a substantial gathering of manufacturers and suppliers from the UK printed circuit industry. ICT chair Emma Hudson reflected upon lessons learned during the pandemic lock-down and how the industry has successfully adapted to circumstances. She commented that the UK’s PCB fabricators are extremely busy, as she introduced an outstanding conference programme including a keynote from the incomparable Happy Holden.

Things are heating up in the world of PCB design and manufacturing as well. In the past week, we published quite a bit of news—some good, some not so good. Some of the news is mixed, as we see with the EMS industry shipments rising YOY in April, but falling from the previous month. It’s nice to see NASA investing in American small businesses, but they didn’t really have a choice, did they?

I recently spoke with PCB Technologies’ Jeff De Serrano, Yaniv Maydar, and Alon Menache about their new venture, InPack. They explain their plans to focus on advanced packaging, miniaturization, and other high-end technology, with much faster time to market, and they offer a view of the global market as well.
