1 min read

ACW Technology has signed up to the SC21 national aerospace and defence supply chain improvement programme. The move will allow ACW to work with other leading companies in the aerospace and defence sector, including the Ministry of Defence, in a coordinated effort to improve the industry's supply chain.

ACW was formally nominated to join SC21 by Thales, to whom it is a preferred supplier. By joining SC21, ACW has signed up to a formal recognition process that reflects the contribution and commitment of its supply chain. Participation in SC21 also helps businesses like ACW gain key competitive advantage by understanding how the industry will be evolving in the future and giving early awareness of the latest developments in the sector. Owen Reeves, ACW’s managing director, commented: “The fact that a large percentage of our business comes from customers in the defence and aerospace sector made signing up to SC21 a very straightforward decision. Not only does SC21 help us to streamline our operating procedures and discuss best practice with other similar businesses, it also gives us access to potential new customers. The valuable knowledge sharing encouraged through the programme will also help us to enhance the already excellent service we’re able to offer our customers and help us to identify and cut down on unnecessary costs.” Recently, ACW was selected by Thales UK to supply fully tested pcb assemblies for a new target locator system for the UK's front line forces.
