“The achievement of this standard is a significant milestone in PCT’s Aerospace Division’s strategic road map as it not only confirms our serious intent to enter the aerospace market but it is also the key foundation block upon which to build the aerospace business. AS9100 C/ EN 9100:2009 standard is considered the first key to unlocking access to the aerospace industry and as of today PCT are one of only two composite manufacturing companies within the UAE that have achieved certification to this highly valued international aerospace quality standard ”, said Hannes Waimer, Managing Director.

This achievement will enable the aerospace division to pursue more complex work packages from a wider range of customers, however, PCT are under no illusion that they can stop here.
