  • Becomes first IRIS-certified thermoforming company in the Americas

    READING, PA – February 6, 2017 – Brentwood announced today that its heavy gauge thermoforming, trimming, and assembly departments successfully passed an audit to become IRIS certified. The aim of IRIS is to offer an efficient and transparent system for auditing railway suppliers, ensuring railway components meet globally recognized quality standards.

    The achievement of this certification is well-timed as rail authorities are increasingly seeking energy-reducing solutions, making weight savings an important design consideration. Thermoplastic options, such as those offered by Brentwood, provide a lighter alternative to traditional fiberglass reinforced plastic parts, and therefore, contribute to lighter vehicles and energy savings.

    “Brentwood is serious about bringing value to our customers,” says Geoffrey Young, Brentwood’s Transportation Product Line Manager. “By achieving the IRIS certification, we are proving our commitment to the future of the rail industry.”
