IPC Mouldings says it has become only the fifth business in the UK to achieve the SC21 Gold Award.
The manufacturer which, this month is also celebrating 25 years as a supply chain partner in aircraft interiors, offers a range of services including mould tool design and manufacture, CNC machining, injection moulding using high performance engineering polymers and value-add assemblies to aerospace, medical and other industries.
Managing director of IPC Mouldings, Joanne Liddle, spoke of her delight at receiving the Gold Award: “We are thrilled to receive the SC21 Gold Award. This is an amazing achievement from an extraordinary team in IPC and reinforces our dedication to quality and delivery, ensuring that the products and services we provide to customers are of the highest standard.
“We have exceeded expectations going from an SC21 Bronze in 2015 to a Gold Award in 2019. To reach this pinnacle of excellence within the space of four years is an incredible accomplishment. Our team has worked effortlessly to create a culture of continuous improvement in line with our values and future vision for the company. All processes and standards are met, and continue to meet the required Gold framework.
The company’s journey throughout the SC21 programme has been sponsored by global giant, Collins Aerospace.
“We would like to thank our sponsor, Collins Aerospace for their commitment throughout the SC21 journey,” she added. “We would not have achieved the Gold Award without the continued support of this global leader in aircraft interiors.”
Collins Aerospace’s Stuart McKee said: “It’s fantastic to see IPC Mouldings achieve the SC21 Gold Performance Standard Award. In such a competitive market, it’s important that supply chain performance continues to improve and maintain exceptional standards. Through their hard work and dedication to SC21, IPC has proven that they have the necessary skills to deliver world class products and Collins Aerospace is delighted to have played a key role in supporting the company. Congratulations to all the team on this outstanding achievement.”
Dr Leslie Orr, director of ADS NI spoke about IPC’s success saying: “It is great to hear that IPC Mouldings has been awarded Gold in the SC21 programme. Being one of five companies in the UK that holds this award will only strengthen IPC’s relationship with their customers, as well as adding to the strength of the aerospace sector in the Northern Ireland region. Well done to all the team.”
