ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., June 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nasco is pleased to announce its approval as a trusted supplier for the DLA. Nasco's induction to both the Qualified Suppliers List of Distributors (QSLD) and the Qualified Testing Suppliers List (QTSL) programs are the latest examples of our commitment to quality. This announcement comes after an extensive facility audit of Nasco's Quality Management System and its in-house inspection and test laboratory. These approvals allow Nasco to supply the DLA Land and Maritime divisions with Federal Stock Classes (FSC) 5961 (semiconductors) and 5962 (microcircuits) devices. These critical items are processed through Nasco's comprehensive counterfeit avoidance program and electrical testing procedures. In addition to these approvals, Nasco is contracted with Applied DNA Sciences to have its own SigNature DNA marking applied to devices that require forensic proof of authentication. This technology helps protect critical DoD weapons systems from the counterfeit epidemic on non-traceable legacy components.

The management team and staff are excited about the opportunities that come with Nasco's continual commitment and improvement to its quality system. As an approved trusted supplier for the U.S. government, this commitment to quality has attracted many new franchise lines such as IBM, Ametek, SunLED, EFC Wesco and Precision Resistive Products, just to name a few. 

Nasco is a woman-owned, HUBZone small business. Nasco has been a leading OEM parts distributor of Mil\Aero hardware, electronic components and Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) Services for over 12 years. We are ISO9001-2008, AS9120A, ANSI\ESD-20.20-2007 and CCAP-101 certified and have been awarded the Boeing Silver Performance Excellence Award for 2012.
