Sunburst Electronics Earns Major Recognition


Erie-based Sunburst Electronics is the first Pennsylvania manufacturer to earn the IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 Qualified Manufacturers Listing (QML) from IPC’s Validation Services Program for high-performance electronic assemblies.

Sunburst successfully completed an intensive audit based on two of IPC’s foremost standards: IPC J-STD-001, Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic
Assemblies and IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies. Sunburst exceeded the requirements for both Class 2 and Class 3 classifications. Sunburst is now listed as an IPC-trusted source. The company is the first manufacturer in Pennsylvania and only the fourth in the United States to receive this coveted recognition.

“It is very rewarding for Sunburst to achieve third party validation of our robust manufacturing and quality system. Sunburst Quality Management system, SQM, was designed to meet and exceed the highest industry standards in the medical (ISO 13485) and aerospace (AS 9100) industries allowing us to serve our customers with unquestionable qualifications,” said John Cline, Sunburst’s president and chief executive officer. “We are laser focused on quality and performance, and this IPC QML proves we deliver on that promise.”
