Quality and Accreditations

In order to deliver products on-time, to the required level of quality and with the expected cost-of-quality, the contract manufacturer has to have in place an appropriate infrastructure of policies, standards and procedures.

Over some 45 years of trading Ultra Electronics CEMS has developed a rich library of policies, standards and procedures helping to ensure that process quality and efficiency are of a consistently high standard.

By way of confirmation, CEMS hold both documentation system and process control accreditations ISO9001:2015, AS9100 Rev. D and NADCAP AC7120.

The holding of independently audited external accreditations is a good indication of the underlying quality culture within a business. The gathering of customer feedback on their level of service, and the action of incorporating such feedback into the business to fuel continuous improvement is essential.

Ultra Electronics CEMS offers a wide range of services including:

  • Accreditations
  • Workmanship Standard
  • Works Instructions and Procedures
  • Customer Feedback
