The Middlesex, VT, US production facility of Web Industries Inc.’s (Marlborough, MA, US) Aerospace market team announced Jan. 16 it has earned accreditation from Nadcap (the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) covering the facility’s composite cutting and kitting operations. The official certification for Web Middlesex is to the requirements of AC7118 Rev F and was granted in November of  2018.
