MANUFACTURING
Process

The manufacturing process is guided by a clear ISO 9001:2015 certificated procedure structure and controlled via an all encompassing ERP system to provide part and material traceability.

Controlled, well developed procedures and experienced staff are key to be able to produce complex parts in the very short lead times as ordinarily required by our customers.The initial production of each new part to us will proceed on a ‘1 off’ prototype basis undertaking the full manufacturing procedure in order to fully prove out the process prior to running the full batch quantity required.
