Attwater gains international accreditation

The internationally-recognised standard is awarded by the International Aerospace Quality Group and is most commonly found amongst companies in the aviation, space and defence sectors and throughout the supply chains.

It denotes the highest calibre of product design, manufacture and maintenance and is backed by companies such as BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin and Rolls-Royce.

Attwater's quality director Dave Swarbrick said: "The full aerospace audit passed with only two very minor non-compliances, proving once again that we're one of the best in the industry at what we do.

"At Attwater, we take our compliance very seriously. It gives customers confidence in the quality of our work and it ensures we are operating to the highest of standards."

Attwater, which specialises in industrial laminates and insulation materials, exports to more than 40 countries around the world including Spain, France, New Zealand and Malaysia.

Attwater products are used in countless applications throughout the world, including, aerospace, rail, automotive, marine, defence, white goods, switchgear and test equipment manufacture.
