Maycast-Nokes achieves QUALIFAS recognition

We are delighted to announce that Maycast-Nokes has received recognition from QUALIFAS (Qualité des Approvisionnements pour les Industries Françaises Aéronautiques et Spatiales) as a premium supplier of aluminium castings to the French aerospace industry.

QUALIFAS (Supply Quality for French Aerospace Industries) is an association created by the French Quality Commission. It serves as a pool of resource, showcasing suppliers to the French industry, enabling its members to access assessments of suppliers' quality systems.

Members of QUALIFAS (including Airbus, Liebherr, Latecoere, Dassault and Zodiac) can now view Maycast-Nokes’ high score against a recognised set of supplier performance and quality parameters. This formal approval will provide an independently certified overview of Maycast-Nokes’ capabilities as an aerospace foundry and will streamline future supplier audits for French aerospace companies looking for new sources of aluminium castings.

Dave Blower, Sales Director at Maycast-Nokes said, ‘The SPM audit, certified by QUALIFAS, recognises Maycast-Nokes’ commitment to supplying castings of the highest quality to the French aerospace industry. This achievement underlines our commitment to exporting and we hope this paves the way to closer ties between ourselves and French aerospace companies.

Maycast-Nokes currently exports more than 40% of its turnover and increased interest from overseas aerospace and defence contractors has enabled the company to invest in state-of-the art machining centres which will broaden its engineering capabilities and increase production capacity.

Dave Blower added, “Continual improvement has always been at the heart of our activities. The latest investments show our continued commitment to enhancing our capabilities and increasing our capacity to supply fully machined castings into the French aerospace, defence and engineering sectors.”
