Leading global player in aircraft engine pods certifies JMJ Aerospace
management of its Quality Management Program (QMP)
PARIS, BOURGET, France, June 21, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Under a three-year
agreement signed last fall, JMJ Aerospace's expertise has been
recognized by SAFRAN Aircelle, which confirmed the certification of the
quality management program developed by JMJ Aerospace. This rigorous
program will be implemented in the production of engine pods for Sukhoi
Civil Aircraft Company's (SCAC) Superjet100.
In October 2010, JMJ Aerospace deployed resources from Quebec and other
parts of Canada to SAFRAN Aircelle in France and Russia. JMJ Aerospace
offers project management, through which it carries out the planning,
logistics and management of the workforce. It also provides technical
assistance on site through its mobile teams.
A dozen technical experts from Quebec and elsewhere in Canada have been
assigned to the pod production operations for the Superjet100 series,
at SAFRAN Aircelle's main podding sites located in Toulouse, France,
and Komsomolsk, Russia. Canadians contributed to setting up the 2,000
m² facility in Russia, which is devoted entirely to SCAC's Superjet100.
The JMJ Aerospace team, which comprises a project manager and
operations supervisor, a production inspector, assembly mechanics and
other technical resources, ensures the deployment of the Quality
Management Program (QMP) in line with both SAFRAN Aircelle's quality
policy and process improvement policy.
"This agreement with SAFRAN Aircelle is a first in Quebec in the project
and resource management sector. We're proud to be the prime contractor
and to thereby contribute to raising awareness of Quebec's expertise in
aviation on the international scene," said MarieChantal Chassé,
president and CEO of JMJ Aerospace.
SAFRAN Aircelle, a leading player in the engine pod sector, has an
ambitious quality policy in keeping with its focus on excellence. The
French company says it is delighted with JMJ Aerospace's proposal and
confident it will make the most of Quebec expertise.
"With our commitment to providing our customers with products and
services at the highest international level, in a context of continuous
improvement, we are pleased to be able to rely on these highly
qualified quality-management specialists from Quebec, who are committed
to implementing the Quality Management Program (QMP). They will
undoubtedly help us consolidate our position and ensure we become a
dominant player in the engine pod market," said Serge Rière, site and
operations manager for Aircelle's podding unit in Toulouse.
