Raymor Industries Inc. (TSX VENTURE: RAR), a leading developer and producer of single-walled carbon nanotubes, nanomaterials and advanced materials, announces that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Raymor Aerospace has received AS 9100 certification for its thermal spray coating operations. The AS 9100 certification of the company's quality system, achieved after intense auditing, is a major milestone and a prerequisite in becoming an approved supplier to the major aerospace Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). With this AS 9100 certification, coupled with the company's recent major expansion of its thermal spray coating production capacity, Raymor Aerospace will become an important supplier of thermal spray coating services to the aircraft landing gear industry in the aerospace sector. Furthermore, Raymor Aerospace intends to add various processes in order to provide the landing gear OEMs with a strategic "one-stop shop" for their coating, grinding, surface treatment, and testing needs.
Raymor Aerospace Receives as 9100 Certification; Achieves Major Milestone for Entry Into Aircraft Landing Gear Market
BOISBRIAND, QUEBEC, CANADA | Posted on April 11th, 2007
AS 9100 is an ISO 9001 based set of standards that addresses the stringent quality requirements of the aerospace industry, from commercial aviation to defense. Certification against AS 9100 standard requirements can be applied to virtually any area of the aerospace industry throughout the entire supply chain. It covers areas such as design and manufacture of equipment, aircraft accessory supply, replacement parts, supply and maintenance, overhaul and repair services.
SGS Canada certified Raymor Aerospace to the AS 9100 standards. SGS is the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. With more than 48,000 employees, SGS operates a network of over 1,000 offices and laboratories in 75 countries around the world.
Raymor Aerospace was founded earlier this year to address the growing need for HVOF (High Velocity Oxy Fuel) spray coating services on components for airplane landing gears and other commercial and military aircraft applications. Canada is home to one of the largest concentration of landing gear OEMs and subcontractors in the world. HVOF spray coating has become the standard for landing gear coatings on the latest line of new commercial aircraft, including the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Airbus A380. HVOF is also in the process of becoming standard on older model aircraft still in production, including the Boeing 737, which alone provides the potential for the coating of up to 2500 parts per month once HVOF suppliers are approved. HVOF spray coating is the best alternative technology for hard chrome plating, and is ideal for both the coating of new components and for the repair and overhaul of worn components.
Stephane Robert, President and CEO of Raymor Industries, had the following to say:
"Our AS 9100 certification is an important milestone for Raymor Aerospace. This certification recognizes our quality system as being on par with the best quality systems in the aerospace industry. With our seven (7) thermal spray coating units, coupled with this AS 9100 certification, many new opportunities are now available to Raymor Aerospace. All is now in place to complete supplier qualifications and begin processing large orders from the aerospace industry."
