Vectorply Corp. (Phenix City, AL, US), designer and manufacturer of advanced composite reinforcements, received ISO 9001:2015 certification Dec. 10, 2018. ASCB Accreditation Services Worldwide (Dorset, UK) certified Vectorply’s Quality Management System for the manufacture of reinforced fabrics, textiles and fibers. 

The ISO 9000 family addresses various aspects of quality management and the standards provide guidance and tools to ensure that products and services consistently meet customer requirements. ISO 9001:2015 is based on several quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement.

Vectorply’s composite reinforcement fabrics are targeted to the aerospace, transportation, and industrial markets and company says it designs its products to meet customers’ strenuous goals for strength, stiffness, weight and cost using E-glass, carbon fiber, aramid and other fibers. In July 2017, Vectorply officially opened its 53,000 ft2 Advanced Composite Reinforcement Center. The facility features a 38,000 ft2 manufacturing plant dedicated to producing the company’s VectorUltra line of advanced carbon fiber reinforcements, along with a 6,000 ftfacility for Vectorply’s Technical Services and Engineering Team that includes a fully-equipped test lab. According to Vectorply, ISO certification was vital to validate the production processes and quality assurance. 

“This accreditation allows Vectorply to meet the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 certification while maintaining the flexibility to change quickly, allowing us to continue to meet the evolving needs of our customers,” says Quality Assurance manager Jay Woodrow. “This is the first step in the journey.  We must maintain discipline each day through process execution, monitoring, customer satisfaction and continuous improvement.”


  • Composites 101: Fibers and resins

    Compared to legacy materials like steel, aluminum, iron and titanium, composites are still coming of age, and only just now are being better understood by design and manufacturing engineers. However, composites’ physical properties — combined with unbeatable light weight — make them undeniably attractive. 

  • Recycled carbon fiber moves into automotive

    Chery New Energy Automobile Technology Co. Ltd. in China has pledged to apply recycled carbon fiber from ELG Carbon Fibre to its eQ1 electric vehicle. The ultimate goal is to expand the fiber into higher volume vehicles.
