AS9120 recognises the continuing commitment to aerospace quality and conformance and places TR amongst a select group of companies that have been recognised for practicing the highest quality standards required in this sector. 

The AS9120 Certification is specific to organisations holding and distributing Aerospace related components such as fasteners and is designed to ensure that parts are handled and tracked properly while they are en route from the original manufacturer to the end customer.

It adds almost 100 additional requirements specific to aerospace suppliers beyond the general manufacturing standard ISO 9001:2015, including traceability from receipt to delivery, counterfeit parts prevention and detection, and evidence of conformity and on-time delivery. All of which are critical for meeting the most stringent requirements of supplying components into the aerospace and defence sectors. 

With a proven track record in these sectors, TR’s post Brexit strategy is to focus on differentiation by using its industry experience, technical expertise and proven capabilities to further expand its business within aerospace.
 
Kevin de Stadler, Sales Director at TR Fastenings commented: “It was a long process but the rigorous work behind it further strengthens TR’s position within this sector and guarantees the highest level of competence. It’s proof that we are committed to being a major player in the supply of fastenings to the aerospace and defence industries and continuing to increase our footprint.

“It will open up opportunities such as improved performance against competitors and expansion of our UK market. We also hold ISO 9001 and 14001, however, AS9120 sets us apart in the industry and now firmly positions us at the forefront of fastener provision in this highly regulated sector.”
