Quality Production Limited (QPL) Announces ITAR Registration

Oregon Electronics Manufacturing Services Company Implements Full ITAR Compliance to Position for Growth in Aerospace and Military Markets

HILLSBORO, OR--(Marketwire - December 1, 2010) - Quality Production Limited (QPL), a leading electronics manufacturing services company specializing in turnkey manufacturing of high mix, complex products for military, avionics, industrial, medical, and energy management markets, today announced that it has instituted organizational structures and procedures to comply with ITAR regulations governing the export and import of defense-related articles and services. For QPL this entails maintaining tight controls over electronic and paper designs, drawings, and specifications, as well as customer furnished equipment. ITAR compliance will offer QPL a critical ability to secure business with companies whose products are subject to military export controls.

"Growth in aerospace and military markets led us to undertake the demanding task of implementing an ITAR compliance program," said Tom Hauge, president of QPL. "We have a number of customers who have a preference for working with QPL, but could not award us with those projects requiring ITAR compliance. Our new ITAR compliance enables us to provide them full service on all projects." 

The timing of the initiative is opportune for QPL. In March 2010 the Obama administration established the National Export Initiative (NEI) with a charter to help the US transition from the most severe financial and economic crisis in generations to a sustained recovery. Hauge continued, "Our ITAR registration will allow us to be more responsive to existing customers, and to win new opportunities with aerospace and military customers and partners."

Rather than create a separate group that only works on ITAR related projects, the entire QPL facility will be ITAR compliant. "We see integrating these processes company wide as a way to secure the intellectual property of all our customers," said Hauge. "Since the majority of our documentation is already in electronic form, the process changes were straightforward."
