ISO certification to include Defence Manufacturing Services
17 Oct 2015
Pearson Engineering’s Defence Manufacturing Services has been externally verified by BSI as meeting the relevant elements of BS EN ISO9001:2008 – Quality Management System Requirements.
This is an important step for the company as it extends its capability with the addition of manufacturing services for the defence and security industry.
The extension of the scope reads as follows.
“The design, development and assembly of Engineering equipment for Armoured Fighting Vehicles. Project management of defence subcontract manufacturing and general defence services including maintenance, repair, overhaul, inspection and assembly.”
As a successful supplier of products to the defence industry, Pearson Engineering recently extended its capability to provide manufacturing services to its customers, including subcontract vehicle build, defence structures and defence components. Manufacturing services are carried out at its Armstrong Works facility in Newcastle upon Tyne which has recently seen a number of UK MoD’s Challenger 2 Main Battle Tanks return for structural assessment
Quality Assurance Manager, Alan Rackstraw said “It’s been a great achievement for the business to diversify so quickly into a new market and integrate its Defence Manufacturing Services seamlessly into its Quality Management System.”
