[ClickPress, Wed Jun 30 2010] Anglia Components, the UK’s leading privately owned electronic component distributor, strengthened its presence as a supplier of electronic components to defence and aerospace customers with the announcement that it has been qualified by the British Standards Institution (BSI) for the supply of IECQ-CECC approved product.

Anglia is already one of an elite few distributors to hold AS9120, one of the world’s most demanding quality standards, accrediting the company to supply components for safety critical flight systems for the aerospace and defence industries. It is also a signatory of the ADS SC21 programme. Before awarding the IECQ-CECC qualification, BSI examined Anglia’s processes for the handling, storage and management of product in detail, to ensure that full lot traceability of any IECQ-CECC certified devices passing through its warehouse would be maintained.

Commenting, Steve Rawlins, CEO of Anglia, said, “The BSI have satisfied themselves that Anglia has the skills, the controls and the documentation procedures in place to handle IECQ-CECC qualified product. Gaining this approval is a further significant step in demonstrating to our military and aerospace customers that we are fully capable to support their supply chain requirements.”

Anglia serves an extensive military and aerospace customer base and supplies high reliability components from franchises including AVX and Syfer. Anglia is working towards gaining formal recognition under the SC21 programme, and expects to achieve this within six to nine months.
