Ricardo achieves prestigious aerospace quality accreditation

It has been announced today that Ricardo Performance Products – the manufacturing and assembly division of Ricardo plc – has secured the prestigious AS9100C aerospace accreditation for its manufacturing site at Leamington Spa, UK.
AS9100C is the quality management systems standard applicable to companies that supply to aerospace and defence industries. It incorporates all of ISO 9001 with additional industry specific requirements for aerospace.
Having supplied the Aerospace industry with complex manufactured components for the last eight years, Ricardo Performance Products decided to underpin its robust operations by creating and maintaining processes and working practices which adhere to the stringent requirements outlined in the AS9100C standard. The latest revision of the AS9100C standard targets a sense of process ownership across all functional departments, providing a level of confidence to the company's clients that the organization operates in a considered, measured and controlled environment that can deliver complex components and assemblies on time and to specification with the minimum possible risk.
“Achieving this accreditation required the long term engagement of each of the 150 members of our manufacturing staff and their commitment to continuously improve our business,” commented Ricardo Performance Products managing director Mark Barge. “This accreditation is not an end in itself, but instead a constantly reviewed recognition of our capabilities and commitment to being a trusted partner to the worlds most respected aerospace brands.”
