A Preston-based engineering specialist has been recognised for its commitment to quality and delivery performance this week as the Farnborough International Airshow went ‘virtual’.
TGM, part of the £43million Aero Services Global Group (AS.G), was given the SC21 Bronze award for its ongoing ability to manufacture complex components to customers supplying some of the world’s largest airplane manufacturers and primes.
These awards are a critical performance indicator for the sector and has helped the manufacturer secure over £1.5m of new contracts during the last twelve months.
Sarah Stephens, Managing Director of TGM, commented: “It’s great to play a small role in the first ever virtual Farnborough International Airshow and a massive lift for our staff to be recognised for our SC21 Bronze Award for the third consecutive year.
“We specialise in long-bed CNC machining and, traditionally, have supplied into tier 1 customers in aerospace and increasingly defence. Working towards these globally recognised standards helps open doors and gives us confidence to aggressively push our strategy of moving up the supply chain and actively securing work with the primes.”
The Aero Services Global Group has made a commitment that all of its companies will work towards some form of SC21 involvement and this decision has been reinforced by Arrowsmith Engineering securing Silver for the 4th successive year, AMF Precision Engineering immediately starting the journey and German-based Ludolph targeting the SC21 Operational Excellence Award.
Phoenix CNC, renowned for its Aircraft on the Ground and speed shop support, will join the SC21 Competitiveness and Growth programme, the ADS-backed intensive booster programme.
Simon Weston, Managing Director of AS.G, concluded: “We were founded in 2015 with the aim of developing a highly specialist group, which could help a global customer base to consolidate their supply chains through innovation, efficiencies and excellent value for money.
“SC21 has been a fantastic vehicle for helping us deliver on our promise and we want to ensure that all relevant companies we own are operating to the highest possible standards when it comes to quality and delivery.”
