Add to my favorite
International fastener specialist TR Fastenings has achieved the AS9120 Certification following an extensive audit of its operations and in response to customer demand. AS9120 recognizes the continuing commitment to aerospace quality and conformance and places TR amongst a select group of companies that have been recognized for practicing the highest quality standards required in this sector.
The AS9120 Certification is specific to organizations holding and distributing Aerospace related components such as fasteners and is designed to ensure that parts are handled and tracked properly while they are en route from the original manufacturer to the end customer.
It adds almost 100 additional requirements specific to aerospace suppliers beyond the general manufacturing standard ISO 9001:2015, including traceability from receipt to delivery, counterfeit parts prevention and detection, and evidence of conformity and on-time delivery. All of which are critical for meeting the most stringent requirements of supplying components into the aerospace and defence sectors.
With a proven track record in these sectors, TR’s post Brexit strategy is to focus on differentiation by using its industry experience, technical expertise and proven capabilities to further expand its business within aerospace.
