Solar Atmospheres, Western Pennsylvania, USA, has been awarded Nadcap 24-month merit status. Administered by the Performance Review Institute, Nadcap is an industry-managed approach to conformity assessment that brings together technical experts from both Industry and Government to establish requirements for accreditation, accredit Suppliers and define operational program requirements. Nadcap’s aim is to foster a standardised approach to quality assurance and reduce redundant auditing throughout the aerospace industry.

Susan Generalovich, Quality Manager at Solar Atmospheres, stated: “Teamwork! I am so proud of our entire Solar team. The only way to achieve high quality standards is to have every member pulling in the same direction. That is what we have here at Solar Atmospheres of Western PA. From top management to the guys on the floor, everyone is focused on quality. We know this from our visitors and our customers. They appreciate the care they see used on their products and in our facility.”

“Congratulations to Solar Atmospheres on successfully passing what may be the aerospace industry’s most stringent process capability assessment audit,” commented Joe Pinto, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at the Performance Review Institute. “Nadcap audit criteria are widely acknowledged to be hard to meet and companies like Solar Atmospheres who succeed at doing so rightfully deserve recognition.”
