Nadcap recognizes Solar Atmospheres for its commitment to continual improvement in aerospace quality

Solar Atmospheres of California (SCA) received Nadcap (National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) accreditation for demonstrating their ongoing commitment to quality by satisfying customer requirements and industry specifications. President Derek Dennis notes, “Our California plant just opened in February 2011 and we were extremely motivated to better serve our customers by becoming Nadcap accredited. In less than 3 months we have achieved a goal that typically takes double that amount of time. The quick turnaround in reaching this quality milestone is a testament not only of our corporate commitment, but also the expertise and dedication of our staff. We are excited to add Nadcap to our quality approvals along with ISO 9001:2008, AS9100B for heat treating and brazing.”

A heat treat supplier with Nadcap accreditation is a supplier that has proven to be able to effectively meet the most demanding and stringent customer requirements that exist in the aerospace industry. “Achieving Nadcap accreditation is not easy. It is one of the ways in which the aerospace industry identifies those who excel at manufacturing quality product through superior special processes. Companies such as Solar Atmospheres work hard to obtain this status and they should be justifiably proud of it,” said Joe Pinto, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at the Performance Review Institute. “PRI is proud to support continual improvement in the aerospace industry by helping companies such as Solar Atmospheres be successful and we look forward to continuing to assist the industry moving forward.”
