DACO Scientific Achieves AS9100 Accreditation

Product Announcement from Daco Hand Controllers

In their ongoing commitment to quality assurance for their aerospace, defense and other demanding environment customers, Daco Scientific, a 28 year manufacturer of high quality joysticks, control grip, trackball, yoke control handle and specialty hand controllers, recently attained AS9100 registration. Accreditation to this well-known aerospace standard shows how Daco has built on years of continuous improvement.

Quality is demonstrated in Daco's dedication to the design and manufacture of manual precision positioning controls and optical encoders for military and industrial applications, both to established designs and to specialized customer requirements.

Daco's quality policy includes the following statements:

"Working together we aspire to provide our target customers with the fastest solution to their specialist hand controller needs. Quality means consistently meeting or exceeding our customers' expectations, the first time, every time"

They meet these benchmarks today and two recent examples of the fastest specialist hand controller company in action demonstrate this continued dependability:

- A military customer required an urgent pull-forward of four customized joysticks; they were shipped within four weeks.

- Another urgent in-the-field specialist joystick replacement was shipped in three working days (Daco was ready in two but the customer did not know which facility the unit should be sent to).

In both these cases, no specific support agreement exists. The flexibility / capability of Daco's supply chain, staff and systems all play their part in providing customers with the solutions they need, fast and in compliance with Daco's accreditation to AS9100, ISO 9001:2000 quality management standard.
