Solar Atmospheres Achieves Preferred Aerospace Supplier Status
September 24, 2020
Solar Atmospheres of Western Pennsylvania (SAWPA) recently participated in a Boeing Supplier Assessment. The on-site, preventative engagement resulted in zero findings and Solar, once again, achieving preferred status for Heat Treating, Hardness, and Non-Destructive Liquid Penetrant Testing.
Notably, SAWPA added a state-of-the-art metallurgy lab, since Boeing’s last visit, and will be seeking D1-4426 approval for process codes 802 and 803 by end of 2020.
Quality Manager, Melissa Gruszka states, “Adding a full-time metallurgist, technicians, and in-house lab capabilities gives us many significant advantages. We can provide more expertise, better quality, and shorter lead times; enabling us to better serve Boeing and all others.”
