Terry Moss, Sales Director of Stadium IGT, comments, “We gained our initial SC-21 Bronze award last year. All award holders have to re-apply each year to maintain Bronze status and ensure that the necessary quality standards are being maintained. Stadium IGT are fully committed to this important quality standard and we are very pleased to have successfully gained Bronze accreditation again this year.”

Gordon Webb, Deputy Quality Manager and SC-21 Champion for Staium IGT received this latest award from Neil McManus, VP and MD of Spirit AeroSystems Europe and current Chairman of SC21.

Webb comments, “This award demonstrates the commitment from both senior management and production personnel who have worked closely together adopting and improving our lean manufacturing techniques to continuously improve our business”.

SC21 is a change programme designed to accelerate the competitiveness of the aerospace and defence industry by raising the performance of its supply chains. International competition, together with the challenges posed by the Defence Industrial Strategy, necessitates rapid improvement in the effectiveness of UK supply chains. At the same time UK industry must ensure that it delivers competitive solutions for customers whilst maintaining profitable business growth.

SC21 companies are committed to working together through the two key streams of Performance, and Development and Quality to improve efficiency and productivity, remove duplication and lower overheads and costs.

The SC21 programme commits companies to achieving high performance in both Business Excellence and Manufacturing Excellence. Combined with common performance metrics for Quality and Delivery, the results of the programme will be a leaner and more effective organisation delivering win/win results within the UK supply chain.

SC21 companies recognise that sustained success in our industry requires collaborative working and positive relationships in all directions. Using the SC21 relationship code of practice companies can identify the level of relationship needed and objectively focus upon the areas that need improvement.

Organisations achieving and maintaining agreed criteria in terms of delivery, quality, sustainable improvement and the associated improvement frameworks (business and manufacturing excellence) receive recognition in the form of a bronze, silver or gold award sponsored by an SC21 company, regional partner or A|D|S.

Stadium IGT offers its customers a time and cost saving single source for complete in-house HMI control panel design and manufacture. For more information on Stadium IGT’s bespoke control and status panels or thin film backlighting technology call +44 23 8061 0818 or email sales@stadium-igt.com
