Defense Supply Center Gives Maxwell Microelectronics QML Certification

10/16/2003 - Maxwell Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: MXWL) announced that its Microelectronics product line has qualified for inclusion on the Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) by earning the QML class “Q” certification granted by the Defense Supply Center – Columbus.

This QML certification and listing confirm that Maxwell’s Microelectronics’ design, manufacturing and other operational processes meet demanding military specifications (MIL-PRF-38535) for quality and reliability.

Michael Everett, Maxwell’s Vice President, Technology Systems, said that the company is committed to continuous quality improvement across all of its product lines, and is actively pursuing numerous other industrial certifications such as the recent International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2000 certification of Maxwell’s Power Systems group. The company anticipates similar certifications in the near future for its other product lines.

“Having Maxwell’s Microelectronic components listed on the QML is a powerful statement to our customers that the products they purchase from our company are built with carefully documented, reliable processes that ensure high quality,” Everett said.

Everett noted that the Q certification qualifies Microelectronic parts to one class of the QML. He said that Maxwell now is working toward achievement of the higher, QML-V certification, which is the specific standard for space system microcircuits, and anticipates V level certification for some of its products in the near future.
