UTC Aerospace Systems receives Nadcap accreditation for composites
UTC Aerospace Systems’ Engineered Polymer Products (EPP) facility in Jacksonville, Fla. recently received Nadcap (national aerospace and defense contractors accreditation program) accreditation for manufacture of aerospace composites. The company’s EPP team specializes in designing, manufacturing, testing and servicing acoustic and structural composite products for both military and commercial applications. Nadcap is a worldwide cooperative program comprising aerospace prime contractors to ensure competency, capability and consistency of companies performing “special manufacturing processes.” The Performance Review Institute (PRI), which governs the Nadcap program, conducts 5,000 audits of manufacturing processes around the world annually, providing independent accreditation. EPP’s Composites accreditation is the second such accreditation earned – it follows a Chemical Processing accreditation achieved in August 2013. Both accreditations certify to customers that EPP meets the most stringent aerospace industry quality standards.
