Nadcap® recognizes FPM Heat Treating, LLC for its superior performance and commitment to continual improvement in aerospace quality.

FPM Heat Treating, LLC, Elk Grove Village, IL announces that it has been awarded 24-month Nadcap® Merit status for Heat Treating.

Bob Ferry, Vice President Engineering and Quality at FPM Heat Treating, LLC commented:

“At FPM we strive to meet the performance expectations of our aerospace customers and pay attention to the details required to provide great quality heat treatment. Our Employees are dedicated to being proficient with a quality mindset and this accreditation is a direct reflection of their performance. We are proud of them for this high achievement!”

Jim Feltner, President and CEO at FPM Heat Treating, LLC commented:

“We take pride in the opportunity to service various industries needing a Nadcap accredited heat treatment supplier. Being awarded a 24-month Nadcap Merit is another leading indicator of our commitment to our customer base. Our Quality group is second to none and it shows with being awarded this monumental merit”.

FPM Heat Treating has held Nadcap® accreditation since 2007. Having demonstrated their ongoing commitment to quality by satisfying customer requirements and industry specifications, the Nadcap® Task Group has determined that FPM Heat Treating has earned special recognition. This means that, instead of having their next Nadcap® audit in twelve months, FPM has been granted an accreditation that lasts until August 31, 2025.

Jay Solomond, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at the Performance Review Institute, said:

“Nadcap® accreditation is globally recognized as a hallmark of quality and is a major accomplishment. For many years, the aerospace industry has incorporated Nadcap into its approach for handling risk, as it demonstrates compliance to industry standards and customer requirements. I wish to congratulate FPM Heat Treating, LLC, Elk Grove Village, IL which has gone a step beyond, by achieving 24-month Merit status. This entitles them to a less frequent audit schedule which reduces audit-related costs and other associated pressures. PRI is proud to support the continuous improvement of quality at FPM Heat Treating, LLC and within the wider industry. Well done to everybody involved.”
