Sheet metal subcontractor KMF (Precision Sheet Metal) has maintained the prestigious Silver SC21 aerospace recognition after reviewing its second annual assessment since winning the award last year.
The certificate was presented top KMF's Business Development Manager, Lyndon Royall, by Rolls Royce's Global Supply Chain Executive, Andy Page, at the A.D.S Pavilion at Farnborough Air Show.
"This ongoing recognition to SC21 Silver is confirmation of the commitment of everyone at KMF towards building on the work we are doing for customers in the aerospace sector. We have made a significant investment in the KMF Advanced Solutions, and we are seeing turnover growth from existing customers and an increase in serious inquiries for potential new business," said Lyndon Royall.
KMF is one of just 29 UK companies awarded SC21 at the Silver level, and the award is playing a significant role in opening doors to new business for the company from the aerospace community.
KMF's Advanced Solutions facility was created as a stand-alone business unit specifically to cater for the aerospace, medical and other demanding industry sectors.
The management systems that it already had in place within its central sheet metal manufacturing facility were instrumental in the rapid initial accreditation just over a year ago.
From taking the decision to apply for SC21 Silver it took KMF just six months to achieve its goal having 12 months of data to evaluate.
