HUNT VALLEY, Md. -- April 22, 2013

TESSCO Technologies Incorporated (NASDAQ:TESS), a leading provider of the
product and value chain solutions required to build, use and maintain wireless
systems, today announced that it has successfully completed a full
recertification audit of its supply-chain quality management system and
maintained its ISO 9001:2008 and TL 9000 registration (TL6575).

The TL9000 Quality Management System is the telecom industry's unique
extension to ISO9001:2008 and was developed to meet the supply-chain quality
requirements of the worldwide telecommunications industry.

TESSCO is one of the first companies to update its measurement standards from
TL 9000-V Release 4.5 to 5.0, and the first company certified by National
Quality Assurance, U.S.A. (NQA) to achieve this compliance. The TL 9000
Quality Management System (QMS) Measurements Handbook Release 5.0 is a
comprehensive guide to measurements processing, usage, responsibilities and
requirements. It defines the minimum set of performance measurements to assess
progress and evaluate results of quality management system implementation. It
identifies performance measurements in the key areas of hardware, software,
common, outage and service quality.

To achieve this distinction, aspects of TESSCO’s business were audited by NQA,
an accredited organization under the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board.
“TESSCO is proud to be one of the first companies to update our certificate to
TL 9000-V R5.0/R5.0,” said TESSCO Senior Vice President Doug Rein. “This
important recertification represents our focus on maintaining the highest
standards of operational excellence and our proven ability to demonstrate
cost- and performance-based improvements of reliability and quality of
products, services, and supply-chain solutions.”
