|The L3 Sonoma EO Advantage
Our program-tested organizational and personal relationships extend to every phase of the supply chain. Whether applicable to a single-unit sale or a major acquisition, consistent performance is the yardstick by which suppliers are judged. To this end, Sonoma EO (L3 Sonoma) invested heavily in infrastructure, personnel, training, and product development.
L3 Sonoma employees offer unparalleled expertise in all aspects of turreted stabilized sensor systems, design, manufacturing, service and support. An AS9100C and EN ISO 9001:2008 certified supplier, we have been manufacturing gimbals and integrating sensors for ground, airborne, manned, unmanned, military and commercial applications since 1988. Thanks to our expertise in turret manufacturing and process control, we consistently deliver a high degree of product reliability, while keeping support costs significantly lower than that of our competition.
Lean is the principle behind our fanatical pursuit to eliminate waste from every business process. The ultimate goal, of course, is to provide world-class quality, delivery, and service to our customers at the lowest possible cost. The application of Lean in the workplace results in greater employee involvement and empowerment. That’s because improvement plans come from all employees -- not just from a select few. We have set aggressive goals by establishing a Lean Roadmap. This involves training employees in the Lean techniques while maintaining a focus on Kaizen (continuous improvement) events so that learning is reinforced by implementation of applicable concepts. By embracing Lean, L3 Sonoma promises to remain on the leading-edge, providing world-class quality and service to our valued customers at the lowest possible cost.
L3 Sonoma has an established Quality Management System (QMS), which currently is certified to AS9100C and EN ISO 9001:2008.
In addition, our company is certified as an FAA Part 145 repair station. FAA Part 145 certification enables us to meet current repair service contracts for the Light Utility Helicopter (LUH) and to prepare the company for future FAA certifications.
