>Kingfield formalises its aerospace credentialsThursday, 24th April 2008 posted by Nick Taylor
In recognition of our growing presence in the aerospace sector Kingfield has become a corporate member of both the Midland Aerospace Alliance and the Society of British Aerospace Companies (SBAC). SBAC is the UK’s national trade association representing companies supplying civil air transport, defence, homeland security and space products.
Alan Oldale, Kingfield’s Continuous Improvement Manager states “As we have been operating within the aerospace sector for some time we thought it was sensible that we take on a bigger role within the aerospace community on both a local and national level. One initiative we will be participating in is called 21st Century Supply Chains, also known as SC21.
SC21 aims to improve the competitiveness of the aerospace and defence industry. With international competition increasing, the participation of companies like Kingfield Electronics to the UK supply chain is crucial to delivering real results from this improvement programme.
Our aerospace customers are global market leaders in their respective fields and as a result of working with these companies we have benefited significantly from their input into our business via audit routines, joint programmes and other initiatives. As a result we have a ‘leaner’ organisation and able to take an active part in the SC21 initiative”.
