Quadrant Achieves AS9100C Certification
Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products (EPP) announces the successful completion of AS9100C certification for its Belgium and UK locations serving the global aerospace industry. This significant achievement makes Quadrant the first manufacturer to offer AS9100C compliant engineering plastic stock shapes, further strengthening its long-term support for customers in this sector.
AS9100C is the recent update to the widely-adopted and standardized quality management system for the aerospace industry – EN 9100. The international standard specifies the requirements for a quality management system of organizations that design, develop, produce, market or distribute products for the aerospace industry.
Certification of Quadrant’s site and Technical Center in Tielt, Belgium, and its UK Todmorden location is the latest milestone in Quadrant’s commitment to meet the sector’s increasing need for reliable quality management from its global supply chain. Quadrant develops and supplies stock shapes and machined parts from the qualified facilities. Its AS9100C registration includes design & development, manufacturing, machining, warehousing, sales, marketing and distribution of engineering plastics and components for aviation, space and defense applications.
“AS9100C compliancy gives Quadrant a formal qualification for meeting aerospace industry quality requirements worldwide, even within a more complex supply chain", comments comments Frank Johänning, Global Market Manager Transportation & Aerospace at Quadrant EPP. According to the company, Quadrant offers the largest portfolio of engineered and high performance thermoplastics for the aerospace industry. Materials like Duratron, Fluorosint, Ketron or Techtron are the base for applications such as handles, grommets, brackets, fasteners, seals, connectors and wear parts used in hydraulics, engines and nacelles, air frame and wings, and within aircraft interiors.
