Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd has been awarded Bronze Signatory Status to the SC21 Aerospace, Defence, Security and Space industry, Supply Chain Programme.
SC21 is a change programme designed to accelerate the competitiveness of the aerospace and defence industry by raising the performance and reliability of its supply chains. International competition, together with the challenges posed by the Defence Industrial Strategy, necessitates rapid improvement in the effectiveness of UK supply chains. At the same time UK industry must ensure that it delivers competitive solutions for customers whilst maintaining profitable business growth.
Roy Philips, Managing Director of Intelliconnect Europe Ltd, states: "This is a major achievement for a business of our size without having the support of a prime defence subcontractor. And I must congratulate all concerned within Intelliconnect who put so much effort into making it happen, all of whom should take great pride in their achievement."
Recognition can occur only after all of the SC21 required framework elements have been proved to meet the criteria in terms of delivery, quality, sustainable improvement and the associated improvement frameworks including business and manufacturing excellence.
Phillips continues: "Meeting the requirements of the SC21 accreditation has not only given us a fantastic tool to manage and improve our business but is already having a positive effect on our business. SC21 provides a robust framework for operational improvements at minimal cost to our business by applying lean production principles and tools combined with a continuous improvement philosophy. We are sure this will increase our manufacturing efficiency and competitiveness. These are all goals we have been striving to meet internally for a very long time."
