St. Augustine, Florida – April 12, 2018 — Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CarlisleIT), a division of Carlisle Companies (CSL), has achieved AS9100 certification for its Blackburn, United Kingdom facility.
CarlisleIT's Blackburn site was established in 1988 as a joint venture between Rosenberger HF Technik GmbH & Co (Germany) and Micro-Coax Inc. (USA), to provide customers with the combined experience of two leading developers of coaxial interconnection products. CarlisleIT acquired the joint venture, including the Blackburn facility, in 2017.
"Our Blackburn location has built a reputation for offering excellent, cost-effective solutions to the complex, coaxial interconnection needs of our European customers in the Military & Defense, Aerospace, Test & Measurement, Medical and Industrial markets," said John Berlin, President, CarlisleIT.

Prepared by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG), with representatives from aviation, space, and defense companies in the Americas, Asia/Pacific and Europe, the AS9100 standardizes quality management system requirements. Used by aerospace companies around the world to improve quality, cost, and delivery performance at all levels of the supply chain, this certification is a product of an international effort to establish a single quality management system for use within the aerospace industry.
