In 1965, the aerospace industry was just coming of age, testing new technologies and paving the way for the future. The race for the production of a supersonic airliner had just begun, and it would still be four years before Neil Armstrong would land on the moon.
But in that year, Ed Fagan began supplying specialty alloys and rare metals to the budding aerospace industry (and many others). To this day, we continue to provide the highest quality materials that go into the most advanced aviation/aerospace components and equipment in the world.
As a result, we are extremely excited and proud to announce our recent award of the highly coveted AS9120 accreditation. The AS9120 award, which was recently presented to us at the West of England Aerospace conference, is the recognized industry standard for quality and risk management, and puts us in the elite category of recipients such as Airbus and BAE Systems.
In presenting the award to us, WEAF CEO Simon Young called it “timely recognition of [EFI’s] commitment to outstanding quality and business excellence,” and called Ed Fagan Europe “a great example of how aerospace businesses in the South West invest in their people, products, and processes to ensure they can compete on a global basis.”
To say we’re proud and humbled is putting it mildly.
Additionally, the fact that this award coincides with our 50th anniversary doesn’t hurt either. After all, it is this “commitment to outstanding quality and business excellence” that we’ve been steadfastly dedicated to for the past five decades, and our AS9120 accreditation underscores the expertise, service, and innovation we strive for on a daily basis.
As Ed Fagan Europe’s Managing Director, Chris Mahn, put it, we believe “this will make a massive contribution to the European aerospace industry.”
The entire global industry has made leaps and bounds in the last 50 years, and we’ve been thrilled to be an integral part of it. With this latest milestone—and an unwavering eye toward to future—we can’t wait to see what the next 50 years will bring.
