APEM is also a NATO listed manufacturer (No F7507). Our production lines have been audited and accredited in order to ensure the traceability of our military products.

Finally, for new products, APEM has implemented a rigorous development process, based on the APQP method. For product qualification, APEM has its own test laboratory, meeting international safety and quality standards.
APEM has extensive product ranges for harsh and military environments. Our catalogs feature a multitude of configurations based on MIL and CECC qualified products.
We can, for example, modify the actuator or locking lever system to meet your need.
MIL and CECC standards do not cover all applications, nor all products.
Therefore, APEM also offers catalog products not approved to MIL or CECC, but perfectly adapted for military use.
It is the case for our “I” range pushbutton switches, Multimec 5 PCB switches, ES emergency stop switches, TS, HS and NV micro joysticks or FG and 3000 joysticks.
