Umeco’s Structural materials operations in Derby and Manchester, UK, have been awarded certification to AS9100C.

David Bernard, Managing Director Umeco Structural Materials – Europe, said “The overall objective of AS9100C, the aerospace best practice standard, is to maintain and improve product quality and on-time delivery, and recommends following the quality tools routinely used for the automotive standard ISO TS 16949.”
