Libra Industries Renews ITAR Registration for All Manufacturing Facilities


Reading time ( words)

Libra Industries, a privately held electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider, has renewed its ITAR registration for its Dallas and Ohio facilities. Libra Industries has worked hard to earn and maintain an impressive array of certifications and registrations in addition to ITAR, including ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485-2012, AS9100C:2009, UL, CSA and FDA.

Steve Schwaebler, Libra Industries' Vice President of Operations, commented, "Our ITAR renewal is part of our continued commitment to our customers who support the Homeland Security and Military efforts for our country."

From its five state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Northeast Ohio and Texas, Libra Industries serves a diverse base of industries such as medical, military/aerospace, industrial and LED lighting. The company seeks customers who require customized solutions with technically sophisticated manufacturing and quality requirements.

ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) and the EAR (Export Administration Regulations) are export control regulations run by different departments of the US Government.  Both are designed to help ensure that defense related technology does not get into the wrong hands. The more stringent of the two sets of regulations was written for articles with direct defense-related applications.  Articles specifically designed or otherwise intended for military end-use are enumerated on the United States Munitions List (USML) or the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) Annex and therefore controlled by International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) which is administered by the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) at the State Department. 

Items, services and information are all covered by the ITAR regulations. The most controlled items are Significant Military Equipment (SME) which have ‘capacity for substantial military utility or capability’ such as tanks, high explosives, naval vessels, attack helicopters, etc.

Libra Industries continues to invest to provide customized manufacturing solutions to help make its customers more competitive and improve their profitability. For more information, click here.

Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Smart Data

04/07/2021 | Sagi Reuven and Zac Elliott, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
