Reliance Precision received the SC21 silver award for business excellence at a ceremony in Edinburgh hosted by Selex Galileo Ltd. and organised by ADS, the trade organisation for the UK's aerospace, defence, space and security industries. ADS manage the SC21 accreditation process and the stringent assessment of suppliers working towards the bronze, silver and gold award standards. A number of awards were presented at the event and a common theme emerged from all the companies participating - that the support of employees from across the business is the most essential factor for SC21 success. Roger Kenworthy, Reliance's Managing Director, accepted the silver award on behalf of the company's 220 employees and celebrated this proud achievement with the team on his return to Huddersfield.
At the ceremony Phil Curnock, from the SC21 project office, noted that there are now 540 companies engaged in the SC21 programme, with 55 bronze awards having been presented, 19 silver and 2 gold. Reliance is already planning for gold.
