Standards are fundamental building blocks within industry, underpinning the credibility of new products and ensuring compatibility and interoperability. Gaining certification is therefore a key indicator of quality in a manufacturer, establishing an organization’s credentials as a reliable, quality supplier. C&K has an uncompromising approach to quality, and we invest heavily in our facilities, processes and products to ensure that they not only comply with but exceed the requirements of the various certifying authorities. Customers in our key markets can therefore be assured that we understand their specific requirements – and that we have demonstrated this by achieving the certifications relevant to their industry.
In the automotive sector, for example, IATF 16949:2016 certification indicates that a supplier belongs to an exclusive group of industry players. C&K recently announced that all of its manufacturing facilities had achieved this level of certification. Similarly, in Aerospace, our facilities in Newton and Dole are certified to AS9100 standard, demonstrating that our processes are aligned with the stringent demands of the aerospace industry. This effort and investment is recognized by our key customers such as Airbus Defense and Space, which has awarded C&K Master Supplier status for three consecutive years.
Our current certifications are listed below – and C&K’s culture of continual improvement ensures that these are updated whenever the changing requirements of our chosen markets demand it.
