Newport, South Wales, September 1, 2011 –TT Electronics Integrated Manufacturing Services (IMS) in Rogerstone, South Wales, has today announced the recent Nadcap certification of its Suzhou facility in China in support of a growing aerospace sector customer base. The Nadcap accreditation has been awarded in the category of Electronics Technologies - AC7120, for the company’s Electronic Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA), and represents a commitment to the aerospace industry on a global scale. The Suzhou facility in China will now form the basis of future approval of operations in the UK, US and Malaysia. 

Following a stringent auditing procedure, the Nadcap process and product certification is awarded by the Performance Review Institute (PRI), the only auditing company approved by the aerospace industry to offer official certification audits.  

TT Electronics-IMS divisional chief executive, John Molloy: “Nadcap is designed for the purpose of adding real value to the customer and supplier relationship, the manufacturing process and to the improvement of quality, which is exactly what we strive for as an organisation. To receive recognition from such an important and independent source, demonstrates that we have achieved the goals we set for ourselves, which in turn offers more peace of mind for our customer as they develop future business.”
