Year 2000 Compliance

The Year 2000 Issue Defined
    From the earliest days, computers were programmed using two digits each for the day, month and year. This programming method became the standard to save limited and expensive computer storage space. If this issue is not addresses, computers may become confused and read the year as "1900" or "1980" instead of "2000" causing it to malfunction or provide incorrect data.

    Acqutek has an ongoing program of evaluation for ensuring that all products, hardware, software, manufacturing systems and business processes in offices and manufacturing locations worldwide are Year 2000 compliant. This program includes the review of all internally developed products including related software and all purchased software and hardware components which may be date-sensitive, as well as the review of all vendors for Year 2000 compliance.

    The year 2000 is not currently expected to create issues that would affect our ability to deliver high-quality products on time. More specific information on Acqutek Year 2000 compliance program is provided below:
