Bodycote Chard achieves SC21 Supply Chain award

Bodycote, the world’s largest thermal processing services provider, today announced that its Chard facility has become the first subcontract heat treatment plant in the UK to enter the SC21 Supply Chain programme at Silver Award level.

SC21 is an improvement programme, with strict criteria, designed to accelerate the competitiveness of the aerospace and defence industry by raising the performance of its supply chains, and has three award levels: bronze, silver and gold.

To achieve any level a company must have achieved minimum scoring criteria for business and manufacturing excellence models; must have a robust continuous sustainable improvement plan and must have achieved minimum standards in delivery and quality performance for all of their key customers for a rolling 12 month period.

To be awarded Silver, companies must have achieved between 95-99% on delivery, between 99.5-99.9% on quality, and demonstrate excellence in a sustainable improvement programme and associated framework. This achievement by Bodycote demonstrates the consistently excellent levels of quality and quality infrastructure in place within the company.
