ACR Recognized for Excellence by South Florida Manufacturers Association

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL - As a finalist in the 2010 South Florida Manufacturers Association's (SFMA) Manufacturer of the Year Excellence Awards program, ACR Electronics continues to meet and exceed quality and performance requirements because when it comes to saving lives, failure is not an option.

ACR management would like to thank the SFMA for including ACR in the 200-plus-employee category as a finalist and to applaud the category winner NIPRO Diagnostics and fellow finalist, Sikorsky Florida Assembly & Flight Operations.

ACR is recognized worldwide as the leader in the development and manufacture of safety and survival technologies.  Our products have always exceeded expectations, ensuring that when needed in an emergency, ACR meets real world demands and not just published specifications.  In other words, our testing efforts often begin where governmental standards stop.  "Quality" to us means x-raying PCB solder joints smaller than pinheads. It means knowing the exact chemical and metallic composition of every component in every one of our products.  It means developing test to validate every claim we make.  It means flat-out rejecting any failure ratio that our competitors consider acceptable.  Simply put, we believe any defect ratio at all in unacceptable, when lives hang in the balance.
