Following a six month tender and selection process during which the company was assessed on quality, technical knowledge, previous experience, as well as commercial and logistical capabilities. Altiplas was awarded the contract. The parts required will be manufactured from aerospace release titanium Grade 5 (TI 6AL 4V) material and be IND finished.They will be manufactured to the French AFNOR standards to NFL specifications.
Recently Altiplas has also completed the supply of bespoke fasteners and washers to a major UK company within the EADS group.

Altiplas is ISO 9001:2008 and AS9120 approved, demonstrating its commitment to quality, customer satisfaction and performance.  


RoHS

Altiplas are dedicated by providing a high quality customer service concerning environmental regulations including RoHS (Restrictiction of hazardous substances). EU Directive RoHS Directive has been recast and will transposed into UK law in January 2013. New guidance will be published on the B.I.S  website when available and REACH (Registration, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) EC 1907/2006.

Altiplas sources parts on a global scale in order to offer the best competitive prices to our customers. These parts are procured on a commercial basis with both manufacturers and other distributors where parts are not always traceable back to the manufacture and it is almost impossible to obtain the RoHS and REACH Compliance documentation after the receipt of an order
Some Manufactures may provide the compliance certification others may charge for this service. Our Client Managers’ and sales representatives will advise accordingly. Confirmation of compliance status is based on information provided by our supply chain network or in certain applications by independent UKAS Laboratory Compliance report. Altiplas takes all reasonable steps to confirm supplier statements regarding the absence of the restricted substances via a due diligence risk assessment process with an audit trial to support relevant documentation. It is further stated that these substances will not be intentionally used in the future. Altiplas is currently receiving many requests for compliance documentation but due to the new legislation which only came into force in January 2013.

The fastener manufacturing industry is currently reacting to this new directive and some delay may be experienced in obtaining the appropriate compliance certificates due this new regulation. Altiplas respectably requests that all future purchase orders/Enquires are endorsed with the compliance certification requirements. This will allow our procurement department to obtain the necessary compliance documentation at the time of order from our supply chain.
