Cambridgeshire-based Hardide Coatings, which develops tungsten/tungsten carbide metal matrix coatings and applies them to engineering components in a range of industries including oil and gas, precision engineering and aerospace, has been awarded Nadcap Merit status for coatings.
CEO Philip Kirkham said (www.hardide.com
): “We are extremely pleased to have achieved this within two years of being Nadcap-accredited.
“This is testament to the skill of our staff and their dedication to delivering a top-quality product and service.”
Having demonstrated its on-going commitment to quality by meeting customer requirements and industry specifications, Hardide Coatings has been granted an accreditation that lasts until 31 January 2021 (instead of having its next audit in 12 months).
Michael Hayward, COO of the Performance Review Institute (PRI), said: “Nadcap accreditation is universally acknowledged as a significant undertaking.
“Validating compliance to industry standards, best practices and customer requirements, Nadcap has long been incorporated by the aerospace industry into their risk mitigation activity.
“Some companies, such as Hardide Coatings, go even further to obtain Merit status, and it should be proud of its achievement.
"A less frequent audit schedule means a reduction in audit costs and the associated pressures.
“It also demonstrates the trust that the aerospace industry has in Hardide Coatings, based on its past performance in Nadcap audits.”
