PRI and AVIC International Enter MoU

Reading time ( words)

In late 2014, Mr. Joe Pinto, the Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer of PRI visited AVIC International, and met with Mr. Zhang Hui, President, and Mr. Xu Tongyu, Vice President of AVIC International Aero-Development Corporation (AVICADE). Both parties signed a memorandum and agreed work together in the area of AS9100 certification, promote Nadcap special process accreditation and relevant trainings to provide comprehensive support to the premier Chinese suppliers who intend to enter the aerospace industry. 

The Chinese aerospace manufacturing industry has been growing rapidly. Over the past few years, many private enterprises have entered the aerospace industry. But for most private enterprises, especially small and middle size companies, it is still difficult to meet the high technical standards and to integrate into the international aerospace supply chain. 

Currently, most aerospace primes consider the aerospace quality management system (AQMS) certification (AS9100/9110/9120) and the Nadcap accreditation as a mandatory requirement and a prerequisite for obtaining customer orders. PRI, as the sole administrator of the Nadcap program, has the experience and resources in special process, AQMS certification and trainings; meanwhile, AVIC International, as the main business segment of AVIC and the primary linking channel between the Chinese and international aerospace industry has a distinct advantage in market development, contract negotiation, and other business services as part of aerospace manufacturing projects, and has been committed to the international aerospace subcontract projects since its establishment. 

The strategic cooperation between PRI and AVIC International will help more enterprises enter the aerospace supply chain, and will play a positive role in strengthening the foundation of the Chinese aerospace industry.
