Terma Aerostructures Manufacturing in Grenaa, Denmark, has received the NADCAP accreditation for composites.
“With this composite certification, Terma Aerostructures as the first Danish company joins the composite industry of 85 companies in Europe,” says Jørgen Laursen, Senior Vice President, Aerostructures Manufacturing. “This stringent accreditation process will promote us as a leading aeronautics company that delivers quality composite products to companies like The Boeing Company, Sikorsky Aircraft, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Hamilton Sundstrand and Raytheon Company. The NADCAP certification also has the potential to lead to new opportunities throughout the aerospace Industry.”
NADCAP is a global cooperative accreditation programme for the aerospace engineering, defence and related industries. It is an industry-managed approach to conformity assessment that brings together technical experts from both industry and government to establish requirements for accreditation, accredit suppliers and define operational programme requirements. This results in a standardised approach to quality assurance and a reduction in redundant auditing throughout the aerospace industry because prime contractors, suppliers and government representatives have joined forces to develop the programme.
Terma is a supplier to the F-35 Lightning II (Joint Strike Fighter).
