The Exact Group retains the SC21 Silver Award

Newry-based precision engineering and composite finishing company, The Exact Group, has retained its Silver Award in the prestigious SC21 Operational Excellence programme for the second consecutive year, demonstrating the company’s commitment to maintaining its high-quality performance standards within the aerospace industry.

The Exact Group became the first company in Ireland to enter the programme at Silver Award level back in 2020, deviating from the generic route of an initial Bronze Award. Since then, the company has overcome the challenges of the pandemic and continued to develop its skills and capabilities, which has ensured a culture of continuous improvement.

Despite this however, our team’s commitment and productivity never waived, and we are delighted to accept this award as recognition of their efforts.

“We remain committed to excellence, and dedicated to best practice and high-quality engineering, so this award is testament to that. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsor, Collins Aerospace for their support in helping us achieve this award.”

Managing director of Collins Aerospace in Kilkeel, Stuart McKee, congratulated The Exact Group saying: “Well done to all at The Exact Group on maintaining the Silver Performance Standard Award. This award is well deserved, and is recognition of the company’s hard work and dedication to SC21, as well as its exceptional standards.”

Director of ADS NI, Dr Leslie Orr said: “I would like to congratulate Stephen, Ronan and all the team at The Exact Group on their recent Silver Award, which showcases the company’s commitment to supply chain excellence within the aerospace industry. It is companies like The Exact Group that help contribute to the strong industry we have established here in Northern Ireland. I wish the team every success going forward.”
