Attwater secures its transition to AS9100D

The AS9100 certification is the aerospace sector’s upgrade of the traditional ISO9001 standard. Attwater, a leading manufacturer and supplier of industrial laminates, composite materials and machined components, has successfully achieved accreditation to AS9100 Rev D, the leading standard for the aerospace industry’s supply chain.

The AS9100 certification is the aerospace sector’s upgrade of the traditional ISO9001 standard. When the ISO was revised to 2015 specifications, the AS followed by upgrading from its Rev C standard to the new Rev D.

The update ensures the aerospace industry can meet the constantly evolving needs of aviation, space and defence stakeholders, the company explains. “The crucial change is that the new standard doesn’t just focus on the traditional quality requirements but ensures a better integration with other management tools and business activities,” said Dave Swarbrick, Attwater’s Quality Director.

“This is ideal for Attwater as quality has always been central to the way we work, from constant proactive research and development keeping us ahead of the industry to annual customer satisfaction surveys which monitor our progress.”

“From our perspective, we’ve always had a high level of involvement from all our board members. The new changes are, in effect, our existing practises, and we are pleased to have that recognised with this new accreditation.”

This year, Attwater is marking its 150th year of manufacturing, having begun as a ship's chandlers in Preston, Lancashire, in 1868. Since then, the company has grown to become a leading manufacturer in many sectors, such as marine, power generation and aerospace.
