Greene Tweed’s Central Engineering (CE) Materials Test Lab recently completed its final Nadcap accreditation audit for Non-Metallic Materials Testing (NMMT) of composite materials.
In support of Aerospace’s strategic initiative, this positions Greene Tweed as one of only a few aerospace companies that have attained this accreditation as validation of the company’s materials testing capabilities and its position as a composite solutions provider. To achieve this standard, Greene Tweed’s CE lab completed an audit against the highest standards for special process controls, test completion, and validation.
This in-house accreditation adds to Greene Tweed’s responsiveness to new product development requests while expanding production material and customer product certification capabilities. It also enhances Greene Tweed’s capability to meet the increasing demand for composite components in new aircraft.
Jeff Sweinhart, Nadcap NMMT Project Leader, said, “This accreditation adds Greene Tweed to an exclusive list of Aerospace industry suppliers who have achieved this level of testing recognition. This achievement is a testimony to CE’s continued commitment to quality and accuracy in our laboratory operations, capabilities, and data outputs.”
Nadcap (the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) is a global cooperative accreditation program for aerospace engineering, defense, and related industries. The Nadcap program is administered by the Performance Review Institute (PRI), and was established in 1990 by SAE International.
