By building quality into all of our operational processes, we ensure the continuous improvement we need to consistently provide our customers with superior technologies.

The 16.5 Oath is the result of efforts to improve our operations following a quality incidentin the 1960’s , and serves as the foundation for the AP Division Quality Policy.
