Lane Electronics achieves renewal of JOSCAR accreditation
Lane Electronics, a franchised distributor for many of the industry’s major electrical and electronic connector manufacturers, is pleased to announce their continued association with JOSCAR, the Joint Supply Chain Accreditation Register.
JOSCAR is a collaborative tool used by the aerospace, defence and security industries to function as a single repository for pre-qualification and compliance information. By using JOSCAR an OEM can quicky and simply determine if a supplier is “fit for business” and a qualified Electronics Solutions Partner.
The accreditation is supported by leading defence OEMs including BAE Systems, Leonardo, Ministry of Defence, QinetiQ, General Dynamics and Raytheon and is comprised of a central register holding common supplier information which can be quickly accessed by all participating buying organisations. JOSCAR successfully reduces the time, cost and resources needed to provide information to major prime customers while avoiding duplication of information.
One of the key aims of JOSCAR is to ensure that the information that suppliers and third parties are asked to provide to their clients is proportionate to the types of goods of services being supplied. A dynamic two-stage process is used to ensure that the process is tailored, and therefore as efficient as possible.
Lane Electronics is a major source for all key connector types including circular, filtered, RF, coaxial, sub – miniature, backshells and adaptors, D connectors, aerospace, test & measurement, IDC, PCB connectors, edge connectors and connectors for rack and panel applications.
With a multi-million-pound connector and piece-part stockholding and next-day delivery, Lane Electronics are the preferred source across many industry sectors including defence, avionics, motorsport, marine, communications, medical, test and measurement, general industrial solutions and geophysical.
