ACG Attains ISO/TS 16949 Automotive Market Accreditation Standard

10 March 2009

Advanced Composites Group Ltd has attained Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance approval for ISO/TS 16949.

ACG says that it is the first carbon composite material supplier to qualify for TS 16949 and support the automotive industry’s drive to adopt lightweight, environmentally friendly technology. They say that this achievement paves the way to widening the group’s existing scope of supply of advanced composites materials into the global automotive industry, underlining an existing strategy to introduce cost-effective solutions that deliver benefits to a wider audience.

Qualifying for ISO/TS 16949 has always been a prerequisite to ACG’s goal of supplying its materials into rapidly growing global automotive businesses and it is, therefore, with great pleasure that the Group can now publicly acknowledge that it has been rewarded for its continuous improvement activities at its Heanor, Derbyshire, UK facility.

The Group considers attainment of this standard as an opportunity to bring about major improvements within its composites market supply chain.
