Casablanca – TDM Aerospace has been awarded Qualified Processor approval by the Boeing Company. This achievement, officially published on 24 September 2021, caps over three years of effort during which the company moved from start-up through facility construction, staffing, equipment and system commissioning to final qualification by Boeing.
CEO Juergen Viehrig remarked, “This approval is testimony to the hard work and sustained effort of TDM team members, led by Quality Manager Asmaa El Wahbi, in partnership with Boeing’s Fluid Systems Standards and Research, Development and Technology organizations. The final audit, delayed more than a year due to COVID, was conducted on-site by Boeing in late June and confirmed TDM’s readiness to deliver production parts in January 2022 on-time, in accordance with our contract.”
The QPL designation by Boeing clears the way for endorsement and qualification by Spirit AeroSystems and Parker Aerospace, two new customers added during the COVID pandemic. TDM will begin to produce “First Articles” in early October, ramping up to full rate production by year’s end.
