Solar Atmospheres of California Receives Nadcap 24 Month Merit Status for Heat Treating

Nadcap recognizes Solar Atmospheres of California for its superior performance and commitment to continual improvement in aerospace quality.

Solar Atmospheres of California announces that it has been awarded Nadcap 24 month Merit status for Heat Treating.  We are extremely pleased PRI has recognized our corporate commitment to quality. Achieving 24 month merit has been a goal set by Solar’s employees since opening its doors in 2011. The adherence to strict specification requirements, flawless process execution, and a daily commitment to quality processing is evident among all employees of Solar Atmospheres of California.

Solar Atmospheres of California has held Nadcap accreditation since 2011. Having demonstrated their ongoing commitment to quality by satisfying customer requirements and industry specifications, the Nadcap Task Group has determined that Solar Atmospheres of California has earned this special recognition. Instead of having their next Nadcap audit in eighteen months, Solar Atmospheres of California has been granted an accreditation that lasts until 31 July 2018.

“Achieving Nadcap accreditation is not easy; it is one of the ways in which the aerospace industry identifies those who excel at manufacturing quality product through superior special processes. Companies such as Solar Atmospheres of California go above and beyond achieving Nadcap accreditation to obtain Merit status and they should be justifiably proud of it. Benefitting from a less frequent audit schedule reduces audit costs and associated pressures and demonstrates the trust that the aerospace industry has in Solar Atmospheres of California based on their past performance in Nadcap audits. PRI is proud to support continual improvement in the aerospace industry by helping companies such as Solar Atmospheres of California be successful and we look forward to continuing to assist the industry moving forward.”
