A busy few months…

During the past Six months we have had some exciting events happening at Amdale, which we would like to share with you.

The whole team have been working extremely hard to prepare the company for the provisional Stage 1 AS9100 assessment which has involved an extensive overhaul of our existing quality procedure.  This audit was carried out on the 24 November 2014 and the feedback from the Assessor was very positive and has recommended us, without reservation to apply for Stage 2 in February 2015.  A positive start!

In keeping with Amdales policy in investing in youth we would like to welcome our new apprentice to the Amdale family.  Jack has joined us from the well respected PETA training scheme which in-conjunction with Amdale has successfully helped ten apprentices gain full qualifications and long term positions in various roles, within the company.  We have high hopes for this young man.

The past two months has seen Amdale produce some interesting new parts for an Anglo/French company, from the oil and gas sector that pushed some of our machining centre capabilities to the limits…and nearly beyond!  The rotor blade machined entirely from Titanium (which is a challenging material to machine at the best of times) has generated a lot of interest from both existing staff members and new visitors to the company.

We have given a fresh new look to our reception area it has a sleek and modern colour scheme, which we think, represents Amdale perfectly.  It also has some existing machined parts on display so if you’re passing feel free to come and check it out.

Lastly and this one we are most excited about!  We have a new arrival coming in the first quarter of 2015…………BUT that’s all you are getting on this for now.  For more updates on this and more follow us on Twitter @AmdaleLimited or check our blog.
