Two companies, a thermal-processing-services provider and a specialty-steel manufacturer, recently received Nadcap accreditation.

Bodycote’s facility located in Empalme, Mexico, achieved Nadcap accreditation as well as prime approvals for Rolls-Royce Aero Engines, MTU Aero Engines and Pratt & Whitney Canada. The Empalme plant was established to support aerospace OEMs and the local supply chains in Mexico’s expanding aerospace industry.

In related news, Universal Stainless & Alloy Products has achieved Nadcap heat-treat accreditation at its Dunkirk Specialty Steel facility. The accreditation represents a step in the company’s move to premium alloys and more technologically advanced products.

Nadcap (National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) is the leading worldwide cooperative accreditation program of major companies and their suppliers designed to manage a cost-effective consensus approach to special processes and products and provide continual improvement within the aerospace and defense industries.
