Quality & Testing

As the trend toward greater outsourcing continues, the FDA and other regulatory bodies have increased pressure on OEMs to ensure that quality, safety and reliability are managed throughout the entire supply chain. By partnering with an ISO 13485- and ISO 9001-certified solutions provider customers can be assured that they are making the safest choice. Global Interconnect builds quality into the entire process from the ground up by performing our own routine factory audits of our assembly partners and raw material suppliers. GII supplies cables with UL ratings and maintain industry standards to insure a complete and dedicated quality management system. We can guarantee that reliability is engineered into our products every step of the way, which is critical to ensuring the safe and dependable operation of our customer’s finished products in the field — from the operating room, to critical patient care solutions, and performance-critical industrial/commercial applications.

Global Interconnect’s Asia-based team of engineers and senior personnel work hand-in-hand with U.S. based operations to oversee the manufacturing process from beginning to end. The result: the manufacture of all custom molded assemblies, cable harnesses, and connectors are overseen by the exact same engineers who designed them with the Asia team managing the day-to-day process.

We will work with your established methods for testing and reporting per your requirements and offer our assistance to enhance and validate your programs and first article testing.
