Advanced Composites Group Ltd (ACG) is the first company in the world to go through a pilot audit and be granted Nadcap approval for composite prepreg manufacture to AC 7124 and AC 7122R.
ACG explain that this accreditation follows the company’s achievement to be the first prepreg material supplier to attain ISO/TS16949 certification for its business activities in the automotive industry, and underpins its commitment to manufacture and deliver high quality products to demanding standards. ACG believe the Nadcap accreditation, gained through support from Airbus and BAE Systems, enhances their existing AS9100 aerospace certification and further underlines its reputation for high quality products for the aerospace industry. ACG is also certificated for general operations activities to ISO 9001.
Jon Stowell, ACG Sales and Marketing Director, said “Our existing Aerospace certification already testified of the quality of our products. Attaining Nadcap certification further demonstrates that ACG’s composites prepreg manufacturing process and products are of a very high standard and showcase best practice in the industry. This embeds ACG as a key player in the Aerospace supply chain.”
Element Materials Technology has completed the rebrand of four aerospace laboratories in the US and Mexico following its recent acquisition of Exova Group.
The new corporate headquarters of Banco Popular Español, the fifth largest banking group in Spain, is currently under construction in Madrid.
