Micro Precision joins SC21 best practice programme

Micro Precision Gear technology has signed up to the 21st Century Supply Chains (SC21) programme, developed by ADS, the UK aerospace, defence and security industries association.

SC21 is a comprehensive business improvement programme for companies in the aerospace and defence supply chains. It combines lean manufacturing excellence techniques with world-class approaches to management, quality and customer relationships across the supply chain. Suppliers that sign up to the programme agree to embark on a holistic effort to continually improve their manufacturing, delivery quality and innovation performance. Participants receive support for training and development and are assessed annually on their delivered performance and future plans, with bronze, silver or gold awards for companies achieving pre-determined standards.

Micro Precision MD Terry Grubb says: "SC21 has become the performance improvement standard that our aerospace customers increasingly expect. Our participation in the programme is a great way to demonstrate Micro Precision's commitment to world-class manufacturing and supply chain performance, and to help us achieve even higher performance in the coming years. SC21 is a truly meaningful award, since the assessment includes both real quality and delivery performance over the previous 12 months, and our plans for sustainable continuous improvement."
