Terma Aerostuctures receives Nadcap accreditation for composties
As the only Danish supplier, Terma Aerostructures Manufacturing in Grenaa recently received the NADCAP accreditation for composites
NADCAP is a global cooperative accreditation program for aerospace engineering, defense, 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 program requirements.
This results in a standardized 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 program.
“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 allow us to 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,” says Jørgen Laursen.
