TRB Lightweight Structures (Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, UK) has successfully gained AS9100 (BS EN 9100) aerospace accreditation, adding to the IRIS (International Railway Industry Standard) and ISO 9001 certifications already in place. AS9100 is the industry-recognized standard of quality and risk management for the aerospace and defense industry aimed at improving service standards and product reliability.

The company says that obtaining AS9100 is part of its long-term strategic investment program in the growing aerospace sector, both in the UK and globally. Additional new capacity and capabilities in the design and manufacture of lightweight composite materials have been made by TRB over the last 12 months to meet the needs of both its existing aerospace and defense industry customers and to secure new business in the future. Recent investments for manufacturing composites include the procurement of a new 3M x 1.5M autoclave system, designed and manufactured to meet the requirements of PD 5500, as well as the installation of a purpose built 4000 sq-ft clean room to ISO 14644 classification standards.

 “As specialists in the design and engineering of lightweight composite solutions, we enjoy the challenges that the aerospace industry provides,” said Richard Holland, managing director of TRB. “Obtaining AS9100 now allows us to extend our expertise as an end-to-end service provider further into the heart of this demanding industry, as well as improving our service to existing customers in aerospace and defense.”
