Our Gardena Ca. facility certification has been updated to ISO 9001:2000 and AS9100:2004 Revision B

To our valued customers:

In our continuous effort to provide better products and service to our customers, we are embarking on a reorganization of our company.  We have established our headquarters as Magnetika LLC at 4429 Losee Road, North Las Vegas, NV. 89081.

Our Gardena Ca. facility has recently received certification to ISO 9001:2000/AS9100:2001.  The facility has also established a clean room to manufacture MIL-STD-981 Space Components and has the capability to perform real-time x-ray microscopy inspection.  In addition we have decided to consolidate our Lakewood, New Jersey, and Phillipsburg, New Jersey manufacturing facilities.

We are in the process of acquiring, and expanding a 60,000 sq. ft. building in Bethlehem, Pa.  We intend to consolidate both of Magnetika's New Jersey facilities into this modern state-of-the art manufacturing plant, and expand our capabilities into larger higher power magnetics.  The new facility will also include an independent, DSCC certified, environmental testing laboratory.  We expect this to be accomplished by the summer of 2004.  In the meantime our New Jersey operations will be conducted out of our Phillipsburg, New Jersey facility and operations at our Lakewood facility will be discontinued at the end of February, 2004.  Any qualification issues that occur as a result of this consolidation should be discussed with your Magnetika sales contact.

For the time being, our Magnetika/East facility in Marlborough, Ma. will remain a freestanding entity with purchase orders issued and business conducted as usual with Mr. Bill Hubbell as its General Manager.

Effective February 23rd 2004 all other purchase orders should be issued only to MAGNETIKA, which is the entity that owns all Magnetika designs.  Parts will be manufactured at a Magnetika wholly owned facility consistent with qualification and specification requirements.

We are also in the process of consolidating our customer service departments with Mr. Francis Ishida taking charge of this effort, assisted by Ms. Chris Candisky as our customer service contact on the East Coast, and Ms. Rosa Elizarraraz as our customer service contact on the West Coast.  (Please see attached list of names, addresses, phone numbers and fax numbers for all of Magnetika's facilities).

Of course please feel free to continue talking to any of our other people like Tom Chew or Frank McMahon who will be concentrating on our sales and marketing efforts.

We appreciate your past business and look forward to providing you with the quality and service you have come to expect from Magnetika.

Sincerely,
Peter B. Caloyeras
