TTI introduces technical support
In contrast to the general market trend, TTI has invested in highly experienced personnel over the past couple of years to focus on design driven new business opportunities. The Business and Product development managers are strategically based in TTI’s sales branches across Europe and focus on a product area, either Interconnect & Electromechanical, Passive & Discrete, Power or Sensor. These specialists work closely with customers’ engineering teams and TTI’s sales teams, to select a range of products from TTI’s innovative suppliers to create the very best solutions. These teams demonstrate TTI’s commitment to providing a specialist service for the defence, aerospace and space markets.
There are major changes governing the supply chain management and the way exports are controlled covering defence, aerospace and space markets. For example, there is a major effort by US and European governments to remove the use of non-franchised distribution and brokers to avoid the supply of counterfeit products. TTI only ever supplies products from its authorized, franchised supplier base – this strictly-enforced 100% franchised parts policy with manufacturer’s warranty guarantees that the company can never supply counterfeit products.
TTI also has global polices in place for export control to ensure that the company complies with all international and national laws, rules and regulations. In addition, the company maintains an administration department in its European head office near Munich to assist any customer with export control queries. This department works closely with supplier partners and TTI’s corporate head office in the US, enabling it to offer customers support covering ITAR, other export and environmental controls, REACH etc.
Currently, TTI holds the following accreditations:
Mil-spec Qualified Connector Assembly in U.S. and Europe
EN9120, EN9100, ISO9001, ISO14001, ISO27001, IECQ-CECC certified
AEO – Certified
In Europe TTI also maintains audited processes to handle and supply MIL/DSCC and ESCC products. Its QPL-approved warehouse in Munich complies with MIL 790 which now controls the supply of MIL products into the European market.
TTI has a line card that offers its customers a wide range of product choice from the leading component manufacturers. One of TTI’s longest-standing focus partners in the defence, aerospace and space markets is Kemet. With a strong history including a wide range of tantalum and ceramic capacitors with MIL qualifications, Kemet is expanding the range of products it offers available for COTs Plus programs up to Space level: these products are designed and tested to meet the exceptional demands of hi-rel applications.
