KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 16): Microelectronics components assembler JHM Consolidation Bhd has obtained the necessary certification for it to expand its clientele in the aerospace industry.
In a filing with Bursa Malaysia today, JHM said its wholly-owned subsidiary Morrissey Assembly Solution Sdn Bhd has been granted a certificate of registration for its quality management system (QMS) called AS9100 REV C and ISO 9001:2008, by BSI Group.
JHM said BSI Group is accredited under the Industry Controlled Other Party Scheme (ICOP) and the assessment was performed in accordance with the requirements of AS9104/1 Rev 2012-01 for the scope under "The Manufacture and Assembly of Electronic Lighting Modules".
ICOP is a globally harmonised aerospace QMS certification process defined by International Aerospace Quality Group, a Brussels-based non-profit association within the aerospace and defence industry.
In a statement today, JHM said the AS9100 is a global aerospace certification standard based on the ISO 9001:2008 quality system requirements in order to satisfy the US's Department of Defense (DOD), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) quality standards.
The group said this qualification paves the way for it to diversify and broaden its market share from automotive lighting module to the aerospace or aircraft supply-chain parts manufacturing globally, specifically in the manufacture and assembly of light emitting diode electronic lighting modules.
"Extension of production floor in two buildings is currently already in progress to cope with the anticipated increase in production volume from the aerospace business unit while an application to add job scope to include JHM qualifying as a Computer-Numerically Controlled (CNC) Machining Centre for aerospace mechanical parts had been made," it said.
JHM saw its share price fall eight sen or 4.15% to RM1.85 in the morning session today, giving it a market capitalisation of RM232.62 million.
