We are pleased to announce that our European facility in Kirchheimbolanden, Germany, is now certified according to AS9100 Revision D (DIN EN 9100), the quality-management standard for the aviation, space, and defense (ASD) industries.
The success of the audit, by certifying body DEKRA, attests to the high standards consistent throughout the Ventec organization. The Group’s locations in China and the UK are also certified to AS9100 Revision D, while US locations were certified to ISO 9001 in 2020, giving OEMs and PCB fabricators access to a highly accredited supply chain for high-reliability laminates and prepregs.
Frank Lorentz, General Manager of Ventec's wholly owned subsidiary Ventec Central Europe GmbH, commented, “I would like to thank Matthias Rupp and the entire team in Kirchheimbolanden who have worked relentlessly to show that our systems fulfill the strict requirements of DIN EN 9100 (AS9100). We are particularly proud to be one of only a few companies in Germany to have achieved this certification in the past year, which provides the highest assurance of consistently exceptional service for our customers in ASD as well as automotive, industrial, and consumer sectors.”
Ventec’s German facility supports the Company’s complete product portfolio of high-quality products that includes high-performance polyimides, high-reliability FR4 products, the tec-speed range of high-speed/low-loss materials, and tec-thermal IMS materials. The site provides prepreg and laminate handling facilities including a dedicated laminate cutting room and temperature- and humidity-controlled ISO 7 (Class 10000) clean-room for epoxy prepreg cutting and packing.
Supplemented by the company’s main manufacturing sites, which are certified to the IATF 16949 automotive standard as well as AS9100 Revision D, the certification of Ventec’s German facility further strengthens the global network and boosts the value proposition for customers in all sectors.
