TÃV SÃD Awarded Compliance Testing Contract by Cobham
FAREHAM, England, February 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
TÃV SÃD Product Service has received a Â£1.7 million contract from Cobham to provide environmental and EMC compliance testing services for its air-to-air refuelling systems. As part of the five year deal, TÃV SÃD will deliver testing, consultancy and design verification services to ensure that Cobham's systems satisfy compliance requirements.
Cobham is the global market leader for air-to-air refuelling, supporting over twenty air forces worldwide. TÃV SÃD will advise Cobham on compliance issues and contribute to design reviews to reduce time to market for new products. Advanced product testing equipment and verification expertise will be employed to help Cobham improve quality and promote standard operating processes across its business.
TÃV SÃD will be scaling up capacity at its sites to maintain current service levels, while supporting the new Cobham contract. The TÃV SÃD team will work both on and off-site, with Cobham able to access a remote monitoring service to review off-site tests in real time via a secure network.
"We have proven to Cobham that we are much more than a test house as we take a strategic view to ensure that systems comply, but without wasting time, money and resource on unnecessary activity. We look forward to working as part of their extended team to support product design and development, building our credentials as a trusted Cobham partner," said Jean-Louis Evans, Managing Director of TÃV SÃD Product Service.
