Composites Technology & Training Center
The RCBI Composites Technology & Training Center in Bridgeport provides the direction, advice, and access to resources to help manufacturers win this lucrative class of contract. At RCBI we’ve already forged strategic partnerships with that are meant to spin off new relationships that will benefit manufacturers.
Partnership Between RCBI & NASA
Under the terms of a cooperative agreement and grant, RCBI operates a Center of Excellence for composites in support of NASA. Working directly with NASA engineers as well as local composites manufacturers, RCBI assists in the development of composites materials used for space flight vehicles.
This partnership with NASA is directly linked to RCBI’s core mission by inspiring students, equipping and invigorating the training environment, and infusing the West Virginia-area manufacturing sector with new opportunities for economic development.
Our commitment to quality and customer service earned the respected ISO 9001: 2000 registration during 2004.
By achieving and maintaining these rigorous industry standards, RCBI is reinforcing its commitment to the quality-approach it advocates to manufacturers as well as ensuring defense, NASA and prime contracts are fulfilled with quality documentation.
