The business is well on the way to securing AS9100 accreditation, that will open new doors and assist in driving the company forward with its devotion to quality, efficiency and productivity. A new SAP Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system is about to be launched to dramatically improve company processes and supporting the exceptional service offered to customers. Overseas, a full production line is being installed at its facility in the USA, aiming to achieve a oneweek premium delivery.
