Northern Ireland-based injection molding company, IPC Mouldings, has again been given the Silver Award in the SC21 (Supply Chain 21) Aerospace Supply Chain Program. SC21 is one of the largest supply chain improvement programs in the UK’s aerospace and defense (A&D) sector. Managed by ADS on a national and international level, the change program is designed to accelerate the competitiveness of the A&D industry by raising the performance of its supply chain. To achieve the SC21 Silver award, a company has to consistently demonstrate assured quality and delivery performance, along with a commitment to growth.
IPC Mouldings is sponsored through the program by Collins Aerospace (formerly Rockwell Collins), the newly formed aviation giant which combines the strengths of two of aerospace’s leading innovators, Rockwell Collins and United Technologies.
IPC Mouldings supplies a full service with mold tool design and manufacture, CNC machining, production and assembly of components using high-performance engineering polymers for aircraft interiors and other industries. This award adds to the company’s portfolio of industry accreditations: ISO 9001, AS9100 and EFQM 4 Star.
Receiving the award, Joanne Liddle, managing director of IPC Mouldings said, “It is a very proud moment in the company’s 24-year history. As we celebrate receiving the SC21 award for a third time, it emphasizes our commitment to excellence, dedication to best practice and high-quality manufacturing, which are IPC’s core business values. The support of Invest NI and ADS throughout this program has been instrumental to our success.”
Liddle continued, “With an average performance of 99% quality and delivery sustained over five years, IPC Mouldings is proven to be consistent in business, manufacturing and relationship excellence and this award demonstrates that consistency of excellence to the wider industry and our customers.”
