- We have implemented a dedicated work methodology with the implementation of counter-verification tests on the material itself to ensure its compliance with the required specifications.
- We have the capability to manage certain special processes, such as heat treatment, which may be required for certain materials.
- The EN9100 standard is intended for organizations involved in the design, development, and production of aerospace equipment.
- Our Spanish company, GMAPSA, is specifically certified according to the EN9100 standard.
- It includes specific requirements for the aerospace industry, such as risk management, customer satisfaction, and product design and development.

Training & Empowerment
Regular training of our employees, about the final use of raw materials and their impact on safety.
Verification & Validation
Deployment of counter-verification tests using spectrometry on deliveries from manufacturers. This measure is also a response from PSD Aero to the increasing counterfeiting in the aerospace market.
Partnership & Communication
Commitment to communicate openly and transparently with customers on all aspects of product safety and quality. This is accompanied by establishing strong partnerships with suppliers.
Monitoring and Innovation
Continuous monitoring of the latest innovations and best practices in the aerospace industry to ensure that PSD remains at the forefront of safety and quality.
Our initiatives to optimize the aerospace supply chain
Fight against obsolescence
At PSD Aero, we take a proactive approach to address material availability issues. We have the capability to provide substitute materials that are as close as possible to the original material, whether it be a direct substitute material or a material obtained through a specific route that we define.
A concrete example is our work for Airbus Helicopter, where we were able to solve a stock shortage for a flex plate, a critical component of their helicopters. We identified a new supplier and determined the required heat treatment to replicate the properties of the original part.
As active members of the "Bureau de Normalisation de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace," we directly contribute to the development and updating of industry standards. We are involved in a dedicated group focused on steel and superalloys, working on key issues related to these essential materials. The work takes place at the European level, participating in the ASD-STAN/D4/WG3 and ASD-STAN/D4/WG/11 groups. We work closely with other industry leaders to continuously enhance standards and practices.
These initiatives showcase our willingness to go beyond our role as a supplier and become an active and engaged partner in the aerospace industry. We don't simply follow standards; we actively contribute to defining them.
