The dedication and determination of the staff at KMF (Precision Sheet Metal) have been rewarded with Silver SC21 aerospace and defence accreditation.
With the opening of its Advanced Solutions facility, KMF has committed significant investment to the aerospace, security and defence in addition to the medical sector, in which it already has long-term partnerships.
The company has increased its appeal to companies looking to outsource precision sheet metal assemblies by gaining the prestigious Silver SC21 accreditation by joining a very small, but respected, group of UK manufacturing businesses.
"At the time that we decided to submit ourselves for the SC21 programme there were fewer than ten companies that had achieved Silver accreditation, out of a supplier base of thousands," said Terry Kimberlin, KMF UK Sales Manager.
"This highlighted the difficulty of reaching this level of accreditation, but we were confident that given the systems that we already had in place would fit neatly into the SC21 programme and, with some minor adjustments to other areas of the business, it made sense to aim for the Silver Award from the outset."
" To be in such a small group of firms, in what is a very competitive market sector, is a major boost to KMF and to all of the employees that have contributed to the success in gaining Silver SC21 status, and the ongoing growth in the business as a whole."
KMF was helped through the process by TPT Consultancy & Training to gain the approval, which is overseen by A|D|S, the trade organisation tasked with advancing the UK Aerospace, defence, and security industries.
