POLYRACK founds Aerospace
With the foundation of POLYRACK Aerospace, in the second half of 2020, the POLYRACK TECH-GROUP has a new, independent subsidiary at its headquarters in Straubenhardt, Germany. This is how the case and system solution specialist intends to serve the aerospace industry supplier market with customer-specific products in the future.
Under the direction of the managing directors Andreas Rapp and Patrick Mees, POLYRACK Aerospace GmbH will focus on the realisation of customer-specific solutions for this market.
These include electromechanical components made of metal and plastic, including individual rugged system platforms in various housing designs with IP65+ protection and optimised heat dissipation according to military standards, Air Transportation Racks (ATR), rugged backplanes according to MIL standards for CPCI, VMW/VME64x and OpenVPX for extreme requirements as well as mechanical components and the development and integration of I/O boards according to customer specifications.
"Our principle in the further orientation of the POLYRACK group of companies is to further develop our target markets in the long term and to build up new customers,” explained Managing Director Andreas Rapp.
Despite the current situation regarding COVID19, in which individual companies in the industry are suffering a drop in sales, POLYRACK sees aerospace as a future market. However, this also involves very high demands in terms of quality and possible risks. Therefore, the company decided the foundation of an aerospace themed subsidiary several years ago, in order to be able to prove to its customers the quality management requirements of aviation according to DIN EN 9100 with an official certificate.
The DIN EN 9100 standard is fully compliant with the widely used ISO 9001 standard and contains further requirements regarding safety, quality and reliability in the aerospace sector. POLYRACK is aiming for this certificate in the beginning of 2021.
