Quality management service providers G&P have expanded their presence in the aerospace sector with their official office opening at Derby’s iHub building located on Infinity Park. The iHub is home to a range of businesses from the aerospace industry and G&P will use its office as a foundation to build relationships with the surrounding aerospace businesses.
David Whiffin, Director of Aerospace at G&P, commented: “The opening of our new office is a very exciting chapter as it demonstrates G&P’s commitment to the aerospace industry. Most importantly it means that our staff are in close proximity to many existing and prospective aerospace clients to strengthen ties further and deliver exceptional service. The aerospace sector faces many complicated challenges due to the multi-national and multi-stage distribution and supply chain structure within the industry, which we are helping our clients overcome.”
G&P, whose global headquarters are at Fort Dunlop, Birmingham, are using its 24 years’ quality management experience to support clients across the aerospace supply chain with customer specific solutions.
Key to G&P’s growth in both the aerospace and automotive sectors is its Quality Excellence Model, which has helped the company’s customers, in both the automotive and aerospace sectors, reduce their levels of waste by more than £1.4bn in 2017.
At the heart of G&P’s Quality Excellence Model is an in house sophisticated software system called QTrak, which allows real-time analysis and identification of quality issues. The Model was recognised for its potential when it was awarded the UK’s highest business accolade, The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation 2016.
Whiffin added: “Our move to the iHub is a major step forward in helping more aerospace businesses tackle levels of waste and address any quality issues faced in production and the supply chain, due to the increasing demand for aircraft deliveries.”
