Advanced Composites Group Ltd achieves a 'First in the World' with Nadcap approval

Advanced Composites Group Ltd (ACG), part of Umeco Composites Structural Materials (UCSM) – a Division of Umeco plc, is the first company in the world to go through a pilot audit and be granted Nadcap approval for composite prepreg manufacture to AC 7124 and AC 7122R.

This accreditation follows the company's achievement to be the first prepreg material supplier to attain ISO/TS16949 certification for its business activities in the automotive industry, and underpins its commitment to manufacture and deliver high quality products to demanding standards.

The Nadcap accreditation, gained through support from Airbus and BAe Systems, enhances the company's existing AS9100 aerospace certification and further underlines its reputation for high quality products for the aerospace industry. ACG is also certificated for general operations activities to ISO 9001.

ACG manufactures polymer prepregs and composite tooling to very high standards, often exceeding market requirements. ACG puts a very strong emphasis on quality assurance, something which is considered as crucial to meeting customer's needs in the company's key markets. ACG's approach to Total Quality Management is fundamental to the company's continued success.

Jon Stowell, ACG Sales and Marketing Director, said:

"Our existing Aerospace certification already testified of the quality of our products. Attaining Nadcap certification further demonstrates that ACG's composites prepreg manufacturing process and products are of a very high standard and showcase best practice in the industry. This embeds ACG as a key player in the Aerospace supply chain."
