We're proud to announce we have achieved a new National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (Nadcap) certification for our expanded Arlington, Texas facility. To achieve our certification, the company underwent a strict audit conducted by the Performance Review Institute. Nadcap certification is one of the most stringent quality approvals for a surface treatment provider to attain, and it was made attainable by a company-wide commitment to achieving the highest possible levels of quality and safety.

At General Magnaplate, we believe that ensuring quality processes and continuous improvement requires a proactive approach. Even after the recent expansion and modernization of our Arlington, Texas facility, we’re continually making upgrades in order to produce the highest quality surface treatments for our customers. Here is an update on some of our latest improvements.

  • New insulation. We added spray foam insulation inside the ceiling throughout our plating bay and oven room. This will prevent any potential debris from falling from the ceiling and causing contamination while improving climate control.
  • Temperature regulation and employee comfort. Several new vents, as well as large fans throughout the facility, will help keep our associates cool. We also installed automatic door openers and closers to regulate temperature year-round.
  • Floor restructuring and reorganization. A new shipping office was constructed and a new hoist installed over our Nedox® production area as part of our continuous effort to make the most effective use of our space.
  • Enhanced appearance. Not only did we give every wall a fresh coat of paint, the entire shop is as clean as it has ever been. This underscores our commitment to providing a clean and safe working space for our team.

GM ERP

General Magnaplate has recently implemented a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system created specifically for the surface enhancement industry. This system will both improve lead times and allow us to track orders more efficiently throughout the production process.

The new ERP system combines a quality management system (QMS) and integrated manufacturing execution system (MES). As it tracks orders, the ERP can capture any kind of production data as well as qualify personnel, equipment and outside vendors in real-time. General Magnaplate associates will have easier access to more detailed and nuanced information for complex processes, and the real-time information gleaned by the ERP will allow us to give customers precise updates on the status of their orders.
