FTG Announces its Partner in China has Achieved Nadcap Accreditation for Electronics
Toronto - November 18, 2015 - FTG announced today that Tianjin Printronics Circuit (“TPC”) has achieved Nadcap accreditation at its printed circuit board manufacturing facility located in Tianjin China. FTG and TPC entered a joint venture, FTG Printronics Circuit, in 2013 to offer printed circuit boards from China to Aerospace customers around the world and the Nadcap accreditation is a critical requirement from many of these customers. The accreditation is under the categories AC7119, AC7119 /1 and AC7119/3 Electronics: printed circuit boards. It is now one of only five printed circuit board manufacturers in China that have this Nadcap accreditation, and one of only three of these have been accredited to the supplementary AC7119/3 High Density Interconnect (HDI) printed circuit board / IPC 6012 class 3 requirements.
TPC received Nadcap accreditation for demonstrating their ongoing commitment to quality by satisfying customer requirements and industry specifications.
“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 work hard to obtain this status and they should be justifiably proud of it” said Joe Pinto, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at the Performance Review Institute. “PRI is proud to support continual improvement in the aerospace industry by helping companies be successful and we look forward to continuing to assist the industry moving forward.”
