Directors and employees at Keighley Laboratories Limited are celebrating the successful results of two audits in recent weeks.
The Heat Treatment division has achieved the Nadcap (Heat Treating) accreditation for their Nitriding process, to add to the company’s growing list of accreditations and prime approvals. This achievement is important for Keighley Laboratories as it demonstrates their commitment to delivering the highest standards of Heat Treating to the aerospace industry.
“Congratulations to Keighley Laboratories on successfully passing what may be the aerospace industry’s most stringent process capability assessment audit,” said Joe Pinto, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at the Performance Review Institute. “Nadcap audit criteria are widely acknowledged to be hard to meet and companies like Keighley Labs, who succeed at doing so, rightfully deserve recognition.”
In addition, the Heat Treatment division has recently undergone a successful annual BSI reassessment for BSI BS EN 9100:2009; AS 9100 rev C accreditation.
Managing Director, Debbie Mellor, commented, “The range and number of accreditations held by Keighley Laboratories builds the support and confidence of our customers. They highlight the company’s achievements and strengths, particularly important in our competitive market. This confidence is demonstrated by customer interest in our new Gaseous Nitrocarburising process which is now up and running.
As part of our continuing strategy to increase business with the aerospace sector the Technical Services division at Keighley Laboratories plans to extend existing Nadcap (Material Testing Laboratory) scope to include chemical analysis.”
