Superior Tube receives Nadcap accreditation

Superior Tube, a US-based specialist in precision tubing for critical applications, has recently been awarded Nadcap accreditation for heat treating. Nadcap, created in 1990 by SAE Inc., is administered by the not-for-profit Performance Review Institute (PRI), which is a global provider of customer-focused solutions designed to improve process and product quality by adding value, reducing total cost and promoting collaboration among stakeholders in industries in which safety and quality are shared goals.


Bill Keohane, Superior Tube’s Director of Quality & New Product Development, commented: “We have had Nadcap accreditation for our non-destructive testing program for many years and also for our quality system, but this is the first time we have gained the accreditation for our heat treatment processes. This will certainly open up new business opportunities for us and provide our existing customers with even greater assurance about the strength of our commitment to quality in everything we do.â€?

“Congratulations to Superior Tube on successfully passing what may be the aerospace industry’s most stringent process capability assessment audit,â€? said Joe Pinto, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at the Performance Review Institute.
