Park Electrochemical Corp. (Melville, N.Y., USA) announced on Jan. 11 that its wholly owned subsidiary, Park Aerospace Technologies Corp., has received accreditation by the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (“Nadcap”) for composite parts manufacturing. PATC has also achieved AS9100 certification.

As a result of its recently completed facility expansion, PATC is now able to offer its customers in the aerospace industry a full range of aerospace composite materials development and manufacturing capabilities, as well as aerospace composite parts design, assembly and production capabilities.

“Achieving Nadcap accreditation is not easy: it is one of the ways in which the aerospace industry identifies those who excel at manufacturing quality product through superior special processes. Companies such as Park Aerospace Technologies Corp. work hard to obtain this status and they should be justifiably proud of it,” says Joe Pinto, vice president and COO at the Performance Review Institute. “PRI is proud to support continual improvement in the aerospace industry by helping companies such as Park be successful and we look forward to continuing to assist the industry moving forward.”
