Brad Keselowski, KAM Founder & CEO further stated, “The KAM team is proud to have earned the right to display the Nadcap insignia! Earning Nadcap accreditation is an external validation of our process controls to our customers representing critical industries, for whom we produce some of the world’s most advanced components. This certification also further drives my confidence in KAM’s commitment to accelerate the AM industry forward through continuous evaluation, process improvement, and growth while upholding the gold standards of contract manufacturing quality.”

“The KAM team’s commitment to quality reduces our customer’s AM process risk and enables them to focus on other key challenges without concern. In the end, our success is driven by a sophisticated digital ERP/MES/QMS and the amazing team of people behind KAM that differentiate and solidify customer trust in our capability to rapidly deliver leading-edge AM solutions compliant to our customer’s unique requirements and foremost industry standards,” added Keselowski.

Jay Solomond, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at the Performance Review Institute, shared, “Nadcap accreditation is globally recognised 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 am delighted, therefore, that Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing has achieved Nadcap accreditation for welding/laser beam metallic powder bed Additive Manufacturing, and that all their hard work has paid off.”
