GF Additive, also known as the GF AMotion Center, located in Novazzano, Switzerland, reports that it has obtained three recertifications for its outstanding quality management system. The recertifications include Nadcap, EN 9100 and ISO 9001:2015.

Nadcap, formerly known as the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program, is a company level accreditation based on specific processes used by aerospace suppliers such as heat treatment, conventional machining and welding among others. It proves that a company meets the highest quality requirements with regard to special processes in the aerospace industry. Nadcap accreditation is conducted based on specific criteria and by highly qualified inspectors, as aerospace is a very sensitive industry where special requirements are placed on the products.

The Georg Fischer company explains that in addition to the customers, the aviation authorities also set high standards, therefore GF has not only to display its strengths but also has to be aware of any safety risks of its products and always try to reduce them to a minimum. For this reason, GF Additive is said to be one of only six companies worldwide that hold this accreditation according to checklist 7110/14.

GF states that it passed the EN 9100 certification with top marks in terms of improvement potential and without any deviations from the quality guidelines. Similar to Nadcap, EN 9100:2018 is an international standard for design, development, production, assembly and maintenance for the aerospace industry. The EN 9100 certificate represents the modern definition of quality and aims to ensure the safety, reliability as well as the quality of the products, which has been proven with excellence.

The ISO 9001:2015 norm indicates the sustainable and systematic market positioning of the company, whereby the demonstrably fulfilled requirements should lead to the development of trust and image enhancement among customers and stakeholders. It is based on four fundamental principles that are applicable to all organisations, regardless of type, size or product: process orientation, risk management, continuous improvement and orientation to customer satisfaction. The certificate is internationally valid and recognised worldwide through the IQNet partnership.
