Velocity Composites has reached a major milestone in the development of its first ever US facility.The 40,000 sq. ft. facility, which has been developed to support Velocity’s operations in the world’s largest aerospace manufacturing market, has been granted key AS9100 and AS9120 status.The approval matches similar accreditations at the company’s UK site which were renewed in 2022.The new facility in Alabama will build and supply all the composite material kits as part of a new customer agreement, covering a diverse range of high-performance composite structures across military, civil and business jet programs, and helping the customer’s sustainability and efficiency objectives, supporting the aerospace industry’s push to achieving significant environmental and sustainability improvements in this decade.The site has been upgraded to the required clean room standard, where it will also include Velocity’s propriety digital technology and latest manufacturing systems. Velocity’s industry-leading software helps to improve sustainability in the composite supply chain, by reducing waste, making efficiencies and improving traceability.It is expected that site approvals and first article tests at the Alabama facility will be completed by the end of 2022, followed by volume production in Q1 2023, with all programs transferred to Velocity Q3 2023.To identify growth opportunities in Aerospace Composites Materials Market: Trends, Forecast and Competitive Analysis, please visit https://www.lucintel.com/composites-in-aerospace-market.aspx
