Intelliconnect retains SC21 Silver Performance Standard status

Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd has been awarded the silver performance standard to the SC21, Aerospace, Defence, Security and Space Industry Supply Chain Programme for a second year.

The award is granted by ADS, the Trade Organisation for Aerospace, Defence, Security and Space. Over its lifetime, the programme has had over 850 active participating companies signed up to the principles of SC21 and engaged in a continuous performance improvement journey. Participants range from SMEs to primes contractors.

Roy Phillips, Managing Director of Intelliconnect, comments: "We are very pleased that we continue to meet the stringent requirements of SC21. Since achieving our first bronze award in 2016 our whole team has continued to work toward continuous improvement, and I have to congratulate them all for their great efforts. The award is recognised throughout our major markets and is a key part of our supply chain excellence journey."

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.

Recognition can occur only after all of the SC21 required framework elements have been proved to meet the required criteria in terms of delivery, quality, sustainable improvement and the associated improvement frameworks including business and manufacturing excellence.

Roy Philips continues: "This is a major achievement for a business of our size without having the support of a prime defence subcontractor. In the current political and economic environment, it has never been more important to us and it will ensure our position at the top table of suppliers to aerospace and defence industries."

Meeting the requirements of the SC21 accreditation provides Intelliconnect with an important tool to manage and improve the company and has already had a positive effect on their business. SC21 provides a robust framework for operational improvements at minimal cost to the business by applying lean production principles and tools combined with a continuous improvement philosophy.

Phillips concludes: "Compliance to SC21 will increase our manufacturing efficiency and competitiveness, goals we have been striving to meet internally for a very long time."
