Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division, a trusted leading supplier of rugged video management solutions, today announced that its facility in Letchworth, UK has been honored with SC21 Silver Award status for the third consecutive year. Supply Chains for the 21st Century (SC21), managed by ADS, is an improvement program designed to accelerate the competitiveness of suppliers within the UK aerospace, defense and space industries by raising the performance of its supply chains. Suppliers are considered on the basis of their on time delivery, quality compliance, manufacturing excellence, relationship excellence and business excellence over a period of twelve months. The prestigious Silver Award specifically recognizes above 95.0% on time delivery and 99.5% quality compliance, for which Curtiss-Wright achieved 100% in both categories over the twelve month period. The SC21 award honors organizations that achieve and maintain the agreed targets in terms of delivery, quality, sustainable improvement, and the associated improvement frameworks (business, manufacturing, and relationship excellence).
“We are very proud that our excellent on time delivery and quality compliance have, for the third straight year in a row, been recognized by SC21 with its prestigious Silver Award,” said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense and Power.
Launched 12 years ago, it has grown into the largest Supply Chain Improvement program in the UK aerospace and defense sector. The program is endorsed by all major UK aerospace and defense companies and is managed by ADS at a national and international level (Australia, Saudi Arabia, etc.) working with SC21 participants, prime contractors, regions and regional associations, strategic partners, accredited practitioners, training partners, providers, assessors, and ambassadors. ADS represents and supports over 1000 UK businesses operating in the aerospace, defense, security and space sectors.
