Astral Air Parts is a part of the Qualified Suppliers List for Distributors (QSLD.) This certification by the Department of Defense exists as a program to implement best industry practices for use in the DLA Troop Support Construction & Equipment & Industrial Hardware supply chains’ acquisition process. The program pre-qualifies distributors to supply certain parts or pieces based on a strict assessment of their applied process controls. This ensures that the products distributed by Astral Air Products conform to the six specifications and contractual requirements set down by the Department of Defense.
The program exists to improve competitiveness for the defense industry. Companies officially DFAR certified benefit from improved product quality, reduced time in the overall product life cycle and an increase in customer satisfaction. It also allows us to work closely with government projects, including those for the Department of Defense.
