BRANFORD JUNIOR WAVES THE FLAG FOR SMART FAB IN THE UK!

SMART FAB NAMED IN TOP 20 SME DEFENCE SUPPLIERS!



We were pleased to see while browsing through the October edition on the SA Defence Business Magazine that Smart Fabrication was listed as one of the TOP 20 SEM DEFENCE SUPPLIERS for South Australia. SA Defence Business Magazine is a monthly magazine issued by the Defence Teaming Centre (DTC). This is an honour that cements great confidence in the offices and workshops of Smart Fabrication because this is the direction we have been working towards for the last few years.

In the past 12 months Smart Fabrication has gained certification to ISO 9001 for Quality as well as becoming a Defence Recognised Supplier and a member of the Defence Teaming Centre. We emphasise quality and practise a high standard of work with all jobs we work on. We aim to increase our work for the defence industry over the next few year.

Smart Fabrication was primarily recognised for the custom designed

aluminium access ladders and platforms we fabricated for the Air Warfare Destroyers (AWD) Ships. Other factors / projects that contributed to Smart Fab being named as a top 20 supplier were the speed, quality and design input on the water passivation unit for the Australian Submarine Corporation (ASC) and stainless curing ovens also for the ASC.

SMART FAB IS NOW AN ISO 9001 QUALITY ACCREDITED COMPANY!

After years of calming to be a Quality Company that prides itself on its simple and yet effective systems, director of Smart Fabrication Simon Kennedy has put his money where his mouth is and gained ISO accreditation for design and supply. This is a big step in the right direction for Smart Fabrication who is working towards more defence work with larger quality companies such as AWD and General Dynamics.

Commendations have to go to NWBDC and Craig Williams from Williams Laser Cutting & Fabrication who offered advice from the start and recommend Smart Fabrication peruse Quality accreditation.

Also to Derek Ruse whose proactive attitude and dedication to the goal that started Smart Fab documenting all there process, procedures and writing up SOP's (amongst implementing systems and offering advice to all employees as a clinical psychologist). And then Steve Eccles who came and took over from Derek and finished off all the systems that passed flawlessly. And finally all the staff who has taken on board and followed all the new “extra paperwork” involved with a quality system without too many complaints.

This will mean Smart Fabrication will be eligible to quote and tender for much larger quality jobs with companies that appreciate a eye for detail and well documented paper tail.

SMART FAB NOW A DEFENCE RECOGNISED SUPPLIER!

In recognition of its record of supply to the Australian Defence Organisation and the contribution it has made to the continued sustainability of the Australian Defence Force. This logo acknowledges its status as a DEFENCE RECOGNISED SUPPLIER

This comes exactly one month before the final audit is scheduled for certification as a Quality Endorsed Company ISO9001:2008 for Smart Fabrication. Congratulation to Smart Fab on being recognised as a Defence Supplier and good luck with the ISO audit next month!
