A quality approach
TenCate Advanced Armour has manufacturing facilities in France, United Kingdom and Denmark. Each plant has its own quality certification and quality team, but the quality systems follow a common quality platform ensuring our customers the standard high TenCate service from all facilities.
The common platform of our quality management for all the facilities is a certified management system, certified according to ISO 9001:2008 and AQAP 2110.
The common quality management system ensures, that throughout the processes each raw material, semi finished product and finished product can be identified and its history fully documented and traceable. The Quality management system extends through all the areas of contract performance such including design, product development, purchase, manufacturing, inspection, maintenance, packing, shipping and storage. All supplies and services managed to assure compliance with applicable contractual and regulatory requirements.
TenCate Advanced Armour always aims to lead in quality assurance levels and to achieve ever higher standards. The French facility is now EN9100 certified and the Danish facility is certified to ISO 14001, allowing a common quality platform while ensuring the best possible expertise and services within niche areas such as aerospace and automotive.
In relation to defence projects with offset obligations, TenCate Advanced Armour is dedicated to finding the best possible local sub-suppliers and contractors to ensure a high level of local content in the production, while at the same time ensuring that no compromise is made in quality standards.
