3A Composites Core Materials has received its APQP4Wind certification from the Danish Wind Industry Association.

The APQP4Wind project is an initiative started by the Danish Wind Industry Association to simplify and strengthen the quality assurance demands (APQP) and product release process (PPAP) across the entire wind value chain. The aim is to set aligned standards for all suppliers and sub-suppliers nationally and internationally, replacing company specific procedures. The APQP4Wind project is currently developing the industry-specific quality assurance standard, which will ultimately be rolled out in the wind industry globally.

“We are proud to lead the APQP4Wind certification implementation within the composites industry,” says Roman Thomassin, CEO of 3A Composites Core Materials. “Our number one priority is to assure that when it comes to meet our customers’ requirements and quality expectations we speak the same language. We are looking forward to continuing this journey with our wind customers as we move towards a global standard.”

“We will carry on our efforts to support wind competitiveness through following the standards and best practices set by the industry,” adds Eric Gauthier, President of Global Key Accounts of 3A Composites Core Materials.

To achieve this milestone 3A Composites Core Materials has been focusing on the main major elements required by the APQP4Wind certification for over a year:

  • Understanding customer’s demands;
  • Proactive feedback and corrective actions;
  • Design within the process capabilities;
  • Analysis and mitigation of failure modes;
  • Verification and validation;
  • Design reviews;
  • Special control and critical characteristics.
