Trelleborg is the First Volume Manufacturer of Aerospace Seals in Europe to be Nadcap Accredited

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, at its European aerospace manufacturing center of excellence in Tewkesbury, England, now holds Nadcap accreditation after it completed and passed audit requirements. This is in addition to the Trelleborg Sealing Solutions facility in Fort Wayne, Ohio, U.S. that already holds the accreditation.Tewkesbury, UK

The Nadcap program is coordinated by the U.S. Performance Review Institute and is supported by all major manufacturers of aircraft and components. The global program identifies ‘special processes’ related to the manufacturing of aerospace components and prepares audit criteria for good practice in the execution of these processes, including the manufacture of elastomeric seals.

Chris Busby, Product Manager, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, Tewkesbury, says: “We at Trelleborg are very proud to be the first volume manufacturer of aerospace seals in Europe to achieve Nadcap accreditation. It’s the achievement of our dedicated team at our aerospace manufacturing facility in Tewkesbury, England. This accreditation proves that we are best-in-class in the demanding area of aerospace seal production.”

The Nadcap accreditation will be a key talking point when Trelleborg Sealing Solutions exhibits at the Farnborough International Airshow, England, from 14 to 20 July. Those attending the airshow will find Trelleborg Sealing Solutions on stand G8, hall 4.

Expanding Advanced Delivery Programs into Life Sciences and Medical Devices

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions will further illustrate its TVO through its Advanced Delivery Program at MD&M East 2014 Conference (Booth 2266). This is geared to support life sciences and medical device manufacturers by enhancing inventory management to optimize customers’ supply chains.

Luis Tissone, Life Sciences Director for Trelleborg Sealing Solutions in the Americas, says: “Our strategic sourcing services are delivering a competitive edge for our life Advanced Delivery Programs sciences and medical device customers, by leveraging our centralized purchasing resources to consolidate vendors and reduce purchase orders. We can manage inventory using forecasts, while also providing value-added handling and packaging services, including single/bulk bag and tag, kitting, assembly, special marking and surface treatment.”

Win-win situation

Improved process efficiencies have evolved from the traditional transaction-based supply chain to the optimized supply chain. This type of model creates a win-win situation where inventory and operating costs can be significantly reduced, cycle times shortened and part availability improved.

Visit us at MD&M East, Booth 2266

MD&M East attendees are invited to talk with our experts in booth 2266 about the value and substantial levels of return on investment that can be achieved by implementing an Advanced Delivery Program with Trelleborg Sealing Solutions. At the booth, Trelleborg will also showcase a broad spectrum of medical grade tubing and hose, seals, bearings and liquid silicone rubber products for life sciences and medical device applications
