On the 24th April Nedschroef Aviation Fasteners GmbH officially achieved a key milestone in aviation business development for 2014 by successfully passing the EN 9100 audit. With this certification the company is allowed to directly supply fasteners into the aviation and aerospace industry on a global level. It is also able to source products from internal EN 9100 audited plants.
The first steps towards achieving the challenge of stepping into the aviation industry were taken in March 2013. The aviation industry is very different, explains Nedschroef, from the automotive industry, with which it has long been familiar, because of its special material performance sheets, technical process parameters and surface procedures.
Nedshroef sees this achievement as an important milestone in the history of the company and the next step of its long-term growth plans.
