Excellence in Quality Management

Quality assured to ISO 9001, the aerospace standard AS 9100, ISO 13485 for medical devices and ISO 14001. Reliance is committed to providing excellence in quality management and the highest levels of customer service.

Continuing Improvement Programme

Our continuing improvement programme has resulted in:

  • Reduction in number of customer returns
  • Shorter set-up times, leading to smaller batch sizes and improved lead times
  • Continual process development and investment in tools and skills
  • Elimination of documentation errors
  • Introduction of APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) to ensure that new products are brought into production rigorously and quickly
  • Improved test yield for a major scientific instrument customer

Cobham Mission Equipment has worked with Reliance Precision for a number of years on several high profile aerospace projects. Reliance has relentlessly worked with CME to develop and improve the supply chain of one of our major running complex assemblies and has delivered consistently, without rejects, on time and in full for a period of 12 months thus gaining a gold supplier award.
