Recognition of product Quality and Safety is ever present in all of Heatron’s manufacturing and design processes. Heatron’s Quality Management System (QMS) is certified and registered by UL DQS Inc. (ISO 9001:2008) and has passed the rigors of the Semiconductor Supplier Quality Assessment (SSQA).
While Heatron is not recognized under other standards, our QMS allows for compliance to most medical, aerospace, automotive, transportation and semiconductor standards. We have the ability to perform FMEA’s, Design review and validation, Process and Product Validation, FAI’s and PPAP’s to support your product launch and ongoing production.

Conflict Materials/Minerals Position Paper
As a leading supplier of electrical heating and lighting items to many of the major manufacturer’s around the world, Heatron is sensitive to worldwide issues and our corporate responsibilities. Consequently, even though Heatron is not a public corporation, we too are committed to eliminating the use of Conflict Materials/Minerals, as defined in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and will to the best of our ability avoid doing so in our products and processes.
Moreover, in support of the spirit of the law, Heatron will request from its major suppliers confirmation that they provide Heatron only products that are free of Conflict Materials. To the extent we are able to do so; we will not use any suppliers who use any minerals from the Democratic Republic of the Congo in products supplied to Heatron.
Finally, while recognizing that it is not always possible to trace the source of minerals co-mingled during the processes of manufacturing, Heatron will continue to investigate and comply with the Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition’s directives.
