The company began in 2003 with supporting obsolescence components for Defense and Aerospace programs. The initial activity included procuring materials through manufacturing and test operations and delivering fully compliant devices against customer specifications. Back then, and to this day, our team was focused on sourcing the most highly-reliable, high performance active semiconductor surface mount components available. Our semiconductor industry connections are thus deep and thorough.
KCB recognizes that maintaining a strong quality system lies at the core of supplying Hi-Rel RF and microwave components. By following the guidelines of the AS9100 aerospace standards, we ensure that your requirements and expectations are completely understood and fully satisfied in our organization and throughout your product life cycle. KCB’s management team is committed to the development and continuous improvement of our Total Quality Management System. We are also committed to counterfeit parts prevention. KCB maintains documented procedures to control purchasing activities to ensure purchased product conforms to requirements on the purchase order. The type and extent of control that KCB exercises over the supplier is dependent upon the impact of their product or service on the quality of KCB’s product. All products purchased from suppliers, subcontractors and customer designated sources are inspected in accordance with the appropriate KCB Solutions procedure.
