Seminole, FL—4D Tactical LLC, a member of the Salvo Technologies LLC group of companies, is pleased to announce that its Seminole, Florida facility is now ISO 9001 compliant. “Achieving ISO 9001 compliance underscores our commitment to quality,” said Heidi Dennis, vice president of operations at 4D Tactical. “The customers who buy our products regularly place themselves in life-or-death situations. The ISO 9001 framework enables us to guarantee that our products will perform when and where they need them.”
In addition to 4D Tactical, the location houses development, manufacturing, assembly, and test operations for three other Salvo Technologies business units: Salvo Coatings, Salvo Defense, and Salvo Electro Optics LLC (Salvo EO). Being co-located in the Seminole building enables 4D Tactical to work with its sister divisions to produce innovative new products and optimize existing designs. Maintaining ISO 9001 compliance as a group ensures that the results of any collaboration will meet the same high standards established by 4D Tactical for its customers.
“Achieving ISO 9001 compliance was essential for Salvo Technologies as an organization,” said Eric Mackey, quality manager at Salvo Technologies. “We serve a range of high reliability markets where lives can depend on the performance of our products. Because the entire Salvo Technologies primary facility maintains compliance, our customers can be confident that every Salvo product satisfies rigorous quality standards.”
NQA will perform the final audits in March 2015. Salvo Technologies is currently pursuing AS9100 certification across all divisions with ISO 9001 being the first step. It also maintains International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) compliance.
