Programme for improving the UK aerospace and defence supply chain awards Silver Accreditation status to ITT Interconnect Solutions facility
ITT Interconnect Solutions has announced that its UK facility has been awarded Silver Accreditation in the Supply Chains for the Twenty First Century (SC21) national aerospace and defence supply chain improvement programme. Against a background of increasingly intense international competition, achieving supply chain improvement is crucial to the continued success of the UK aerospace and defence industry: SC21 was set up four years ago with the aim of delivering real results and modernising the UK supply chain through the participation of companies of all sizes.

Of over seven hundred companies in the SC21 programme, ICS Basingstoke becomes one of only six to reach silver status since the programmeís inception and achieved the additional accolade of immediate elevation to silver level following an intensive year-long audit process. The formal presentation conferring SC21 accreditation on the company will take place at the SC21 Task Force meeting in November in Blackpool and will be attended by representatives from the UK Ministry of Defence, Airbus, British Aerospace, Thales, Bombardier, GE Aviation, Lockheed Martin UK and Rolls-Royce.

ICS Basingstoke is a preferred supplier to Thales, who formally nominated it to join SC21 in early 2009. British Aerospace (BAe) also provided key support and encouragement to the company throughout the formal recognition process which reflects the contribution and commitment of its supply chain. Being part of SC21 gives ICS the opportunity to network with other leading companies in the aerospace, defence and security sector and to participate in a coordinated effort to improve the industriesí supply chain. The network also provides the opportunity for ICS and other SC21 companies to learn of the latest developments in the sector at an early stage. To maintain their Silver Accreditation, SC21 companies have to undergo an annual re-accreditation process and demonstrate continuous improvement in business practices, manufacturing practices, quality and full on-time delivery.
