Hartzell Aerospace Receives Nadcap Accreditation For Composites

Move Means Hartzell Will Be Able To Support OEM Tier 1 Suppliers

Hartzell Aerospace's Industrial Tube Company division has received Nadcap accreditation for composites. The Nadcap accreditation and subsequent upgrade of the manufacturing capabilities within the facility, positions Hartzell Aerospace ready to support the OEM, Tier 1 suppliers and subcontractors on upcoming programs and requirements. The new ITC clean room facilities are already being used for composite manufacturing of the recently awarded contract for low-pressure ECS ducting components for the Embraer 450/500 Legacy program, and carbon composite development units for the Airbus A350. Nadcap accreditation is recognition of ITC's commitment to continual improvement in aerospace quality in order to satisfy customer requirements and industry specifications. This accreditation complements the Nadcap Welding accreditation at Hartzell Aerospace's AcousticFab LLC. location.

Doug Wulf, Vice President of Operations for ITC said "I'm very proud of the effort we made to upgrade our facility to support our customers through attaining Nadcap accreditation. We are looking forward to continuing producing high quality, complex composite parts for the aerospace market under our new accreditation. We will continue to grow and upgrade our factory to increase our capabilities to provide higher value to our customers. Nadcap approval was an important step in our growth strategy."

Nadcap accreditation ensures that ITC will manufacture composite components to industry-supported methods and processes which result in dependable, high quality products. As ITC produces silicone and other elastomer products, Nadcap approval required complete separation of composite and silicone material storage and manufacturing. All composite manufacturing at ITC is now performed in Class 10,000 Controlled Contamination Area (CCA) clean rooms.
