BIRNS, Inc.’s world-class molding facility is now NAVSEA S9320-AM-PRO-020 certified. The US Navy’s Submarine Maintenance Engineering, Planning and Procurement (SUBMEPP) department recently awarded the certification to BIRNS for Molding and Inspection Procedures for Fabricating Connector Plugs for Submarine Outboard Cables.
An ISO 9001:2008 certified global leader in the design and manufacturing of unique lines of high performance connectors, custom cable assemblies, penetrators and lights, BIRNS is proud to receive the coveted Navy qualification—making it one of only seven such commercial organizations in the country. As a result, BIRNS is now an approved vendor to fabricate, mold and inspect outboard cable assemblies and components for the Navy.
This certification was granted after an extensive audit by Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) personnel, during which the BIRNS cable assembly, termination and quality assurance teams demonstrated absolute adherence to the exacting procedure of the NAVSEA Technical Manual. “We are very proud that the BIRNS molding facility received PRO-020 status,” sayrs Eric Bins, President and CEO. “We’ve been serving the US Navy for more than 50 consecutive years with subsea lighting solutions and extreme depth connectors and cable assemblies, and this certification is a key component of our continued, growing military partnerships.”
