EireComposites Teo has been awarded Nadcap accreditation for composites processing, becoming only the second supplier of advanced composite structures in Europe to achieve this accreditation.
The accreditation follows in-depth auditing by the Performance Review Institute (PRI) and is in the category Composites Processing - which includes autoclave processing, highly-specialised liquid processing and thermoplastic press-forming techniques.
""Nadcap accreditation represents a major achievement for EireComposites and will allow us to grow our business even further, particularly in the most high-tech composites sector - aerospace,"" said Dr. Conchúr Ó Brádaigh, Joint Managing Director of the company.
EireComposites say that accreditation at this elevated level provides a new platform for the company, allowing it to develop new relationships with OEMs and their fellow Nadcap accredited suppliers. The company already lists in its customer-base companies such as Airbus, BAE Systems, Bombardier Aerospace, Spirit AeroSystems, Cytec Engineered Materials, Ratier Figeac and the Safran Group.
""Statistical process control, quality and total traceability are key to our success and fundamental to the accreditation. We have had to prove to the auditors at all levels that our clients' specifications can be satisfied, from receipt to delivery and with full quality assurance, to meet the strict requirements of the standard. We are both pleased and proud to gain this recognition”, said Dr. Ó Brádaigh.
EireComposites is believed to be the only Irish company and the second composites supplier in Europe to achieve the Nadcap accreditation. EireComposites will be exhibiting at the Paris Airshow, from June 18th to June 22nd , in Hall 3, stand E2.
