G&P opens dedicated aerospace facility at the iHub
Quality management service provider G&P (Göbel & Partner) is the latest name to launch an office at Connect Derby’s iHub. The company, whose main headquarters are in Birmingham, will use the services and facilities available at the iHub to strengthen its relationship with businesses in the local aerospace sector.
The iHub is home to a range of businesses from the aerospace industry and G&P will use its dedicated office as a foundation to build, and further establish, relationships with the surrounding aerospace businesses.
David Whiffin, director of aerospace at G&P, commented:
“The opening of our new office is a very exciting chapter as it demonstrates G&P’s commitment to the aerospace industry.
“Most importantly it means that our staff are in close proximity to many existing and prospective aerospace clients to strengthen ties further and deliver exceptional service
“The aerospace sector faces many complicated challenges due to the multi-national and multi-stage distribution and supply chain structure within the industry, which we are helping our clients overcome.”
Mr Whiffin explained what can be expected from the group’s team in Derby:
"Our move to the iHub is a major step forward in helping more aerospace businesses tackle levels of waste and address any quality issues faced in production and the supply chain, due to the increasing demand for aircraft deliveries."
G&P, whose global headquarters are at Fort Dunlop, Birmingham, are using its 24 years’ quality management experience to support clients across the aerospace supply chain with customer specific solutions.
Key to G&P's growth in both the aerospace and automotive sectors is its Quality Excellence Model, which has helped automotive and aerospace companies reduce their levels of waste by more than £1.4bn in 2017.
The model was recognised for its potential when it scooped the UK’s highest business accolade, The Queen's Award for Enterprise: Innovation in 2016.
