Daico's engineering, manufacturing and quality teams have demonstrated conclusively that using the highest grade components, incorporating a well established material handling system and adhering strictly to proven processes and controls are the most direct and sustaining paths to high manufacturing yields, low rejection rates and customer satisfaction.

Our comprehensive Quality Management System is integrated throughout the operational and engineering functions of the company. Daico holds certifications to both AS 9100D and ISO 9001:2015 that certify the Daico Quality Management System has met or exceeded all the requirements of the International Aerospace Standards Requirements for Aviation, Space, and Defense Organizations. Our procedures and processes ensure our ability and responsibility for the conformity of our products and services to the enhancement of customer satisfaction, continual improvement, and growth of our company.

DOD-STD-1686 ESD Programs and Total Quality Management structured around DOD-STD-5000.51-G, are used in all assembly, test and inspection areas. Daico’s reputation for quality is a matter of record, spanning more than five decades of service to the defense and military sectors, we combine the selection of the highest grade components with an efficient material handling system and proven processes and controls.

Daico’s space and military experience also ensures competence and compliance in heavy documentation and traceability.

Resulting: highest manufacturing yields, the lowest rejection rates and consistent customer satisfaction.
