Amphenol Aerospace Released from D38999 Mil-Spec Stop Shipment

Sidney, N.Y. August 2016 – Amphenol Aerospace has been released from the “Stop Shipment” restriction imposed on all military specification MIL-DTL-38999 Series I, II, III connectors.  Additional Mil-Spec connector series are being released from “Stop Shipment” as approved.

Changes in industry standards emphasizing zero-defect component manufacturing and more rigorous change controls were major precursors to the restrictions put on Amphenol Aerospace.  As a result, Amphenol Aerospace is pioneering these industry changes and working with the standards community on additional changes.

“It’s difficult for any manufacturer to be placed on a ‘Stop Shipment’ restriction,” said Ryan Fisher, Amphenol Aerospace’s General Manager.  “However, we feel that succeeding through this rigorous process and working intimately with the standards community, will only strengthen our position in the military and aerospace industry as the interconnect leader,” said Fisher.  “Our rapid response to the situation has led to practices and policies within Amphenol Aerospace that, I believe, will result in industry-leading supply and process controls over our mil-spec product.  Our customers and distribution partners will greatly benefit from these changes.”
