Hartzell Aerospace’s Industrial Tube Company, LLC (ITC) division has received Nadcap accreditation for composites.
Hartzell say that the Nadcap accreditation and subsequent upgrade of the manufacturing capabilities within the facility, positions Hartzell Aerospace ready to support the OEM, Tier 1 suppliers and subcontractors on upcoming programs and requirements. The new ITC clean room facilities are already being used for composite manufacturing of the recently awarded contract for low-pressure ECS ducting components for the Embraer 450/500 Legacy program, and carbon composite development units for the Airbus A350.
Doug Wulf, Vice President of Operations for ITC said “I’m very proud of the effort we made to upgrade our facility to support our customers through attaining Nadcap accreditation. We are looking forward to continuing producing high quality, complex composite parts for the aerospace market under our new accreditation. We will continue to grow and upgrade our factory to increase our capabilities to provide higher value to our customers. Nadcap approval was an important step in our growth strategy.”
As ITC produces silicone and other elastomer products, Nadcap approval required complete separation of composite and silicone material storage and manufacturing.
