  • Double Success for Keighley Labs

    Having one accreditation assessment is a stressful time for any business but Keighley Laboratories Limited is proud to have successfully completed two assessments just two weeks apart.
    The Heat Treatment division of Keighley Labs first underwent an intensive, week long assessment from BSI, successfully transitioning to AS9100 Rev D / ISO 9001:2015. This revised standard focusses on quality and continuous improvement being at the heart of the business.
    Debbie Mellor, Managing Director explained,
    “The assessment results from BSI provide reassurance that the company is robust and focused on continual improvement. The assurance marks demonstrate to our customers that we are committed to best practice and delivering value to them.”
    Just days after the successful completion of the BSI audit, the assessors from Nadcap’s Performance Review Institute arrived in Keighley to conduct a demanding four day audit for the Heat Treatment Nitriding process.
    Joe Pinto, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at the PRI said,
    “Congratulations to Keighley Laboratories Limited on successfully passing what may be aerospace industry’s most stringent process capability assessment audit. Nadcap audit criteria are widely acknowledged to be hard to meet and companies who succeed at doing so rightfully deserve recognition.”
    Mrs Mellor continued,
    “It was a challenging time moving from BSI transition to the Nadcap audit in such a short timescale. The quality and production teams showed great dedication, commitment and perseverance to enable successful outcomes for both assessments”.
