Twelfth TT manufacturing site to earn IAQG accreditation, Eastleigh now certified for manufacture of human machine interface assemblies for aerospace.
Woking, UK, 5 May 2021 - TT Electronics, a global provider of engineered electronics for performance critical applications, today announced that its Eastleigh UK facility has achieved AS9100D certification for the manufacture of systems for the aerospace industry. This certification marks TT’s ongoing commitment to provide innovative, safety-critical solutions to the global aerospace supply chain.
AS9100, standardised by the globally recognised International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG), is considered the highest international standard for quality assurance across the aviation, space, and defence industries, and has been widely adopted to promote quality, safety, and continuous product and process improvement. Upgrading the Eastleigh facility to meet AS9100D, the most current version of the standard, was the result of a lengthy audit process in which TT demonstrated a high level of excellence in all areas of the company’s quality management system. The Eastleigh location is the twelfth TT location worldwide to meet the rigorous requirements of AS9100 certification, strengthening the company’s position as a leading aerospace manufacturing partner – dedicated to providing custom technology solutions.
“This certification is an important step in our aerospace growth strategy. Our facility in Eastleigh, which is also SC21 accredited, specialises in the design and manufacture of aircraft interior solutions for commercial aircraft,” said TT Electronics EVP, Charlie Peppiatt. “TT has supported technology innovations in this sector for decades, including lightweight, space-saving, and power-efficient cabin signage and mood lighting. While we have always been focused on providing our customers with quality products and services, achieving the AS9100D certification is a well-earned achievement that confirms our steadfast emphasis on quality management.”
TT Electronics’ Eastleigh plant has manufactured HMI products for the aircraft interiors market for over 30 years and holds SC21 accreditation, a designation that recognises its commitment to increase the performance of suppliers and ultimately their supply chains within the UK aerospace, security, space, and defence industries. The company first supplied passenger control units (PCUs) for the world-first lie-flat beds that debuted in the 1990s and are still in use today. TT’s control panel and signage solutions are onboard many major airlines globally, including business and first class cabins.
