President, Ned Bowers and Vice President, Debra Bowers recently attended the Airbus Academy Training for Tier 1 Suppliers in Toulouse, France. This intense course is designed to establish the expected standards of acceptance for quality and on time supply of critical aerospace hardware to Airbus.
“I’ve been through some of the best of the best training programs in the world, from NASA to several airline pilot training courses and I have to say, this is was a top shelf learning curve in quality standards”, stated Ned Bowers. “Just when I thought I had a clue, at this level, a clue is just a learner’s permit”.
We bring back the lessons of this course to our everyday business with a new perspective on world class quality programs and expectations.
“One important eye opener is the cost of a quality program on the level of Airbus; but the cost to not be on that level is even higher”, said Bowers.
