JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Umeco’s Structural materials operations in Derby and Manchester – UK have been awarded certification to AS9100C.
David Bernard, Managing Director Umeco Structural Materials – Europe, said: “The overall objective of AS9100C, the aerospace best practice standard, is to maintain and improve product quality and on-time delivery, and recommends following the quality tools routinely used for the automotive standard ISO TS 16949.”
Compliance to AS9100 Rev C confirms strong management and commitment to quality improvement within Umeco while serving its Aviation, Space and Defence customers. Customers in other sectors are guaranteed comparable quality assurance through accreditation to associated standards and certification. AS9100 Rev C introduces additional requirements, including: addressing project management; ensuring the product realisation process is planned and managed in a structured and controlled way; formally addressing risk management process; documenting process control to identify and address special requirements, critical items, and key characteristics; measuring on-time delivery and product quality; and ensuring appropriate actions are taken if the planned objectives are not achieved.
