To demonstrate our continued commitment to quality, we would like to announce that we have been successful in achieving Nadcap accreditation for Welding. This accreditation means that Futuramic is in line with NADCAP’s standardized approach to quality assurance, which replaces routine auditing with more in-depth, technically superior, special process audits, and it demonstrates Futuramics’s commitment to quality and safety while also providing increased customer satisfaction.
Upon receiving the accreditation, Vice President John Couch expressed that “Futuramic is now on the Nadcap accredited special process list for welding, joining our heat treating and Aerospace Quality System qualifications. Quality is at the foundation of all our operations and this will help to cement customer confidence in our welding processes as we aim to exceed industry standards.”
The aim of the Nadcap program is to assess process capability for compliance to industry standards and customer requirements. By achieving Nadcap accreditation, Futuramic has demonstrated their compliance.
“Compliance via Nadcap accreditation is a milestone in demonstrating manufacturing excellence.” said Joe Pinto, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at the Performance Review Institute. “By obtaining Nadcap in Welding, Futuramic has proved to the industry that they are committed to quality and aerospace safety.”
Nadcap is recognized as the international quality assurance standard for Special Processes used in the aerospace and defense industries.
