What an honour and a privilege yesterday for Chief.

We also discussed our recent elevation to a ‘low risk’ (top tier) supplier to Defence, our ISO9001 accreditation and our DNV-GL Approvals for manufacturing hose assemblies.

CFS was assessed at 94% High confidence contract requirements will be met. Monitor on as requested by Contract Manager. This puts Chief in the Low Risk range on the Defence Risk Rating Scale.

Our new Headquarters is up and running. Late 2015 it became necessary to move to a bigger location….well we found one up the road that was being built and decided that was the place for us. Our facility has doubled in size and capacity. If you have not been in yet to see our facility, do yourself a favour and drop in to our state of the art workshop…and a few surprises!!


Recently we welcomed the Dept. of Defence – SQSA team who came to our new facility to conduct a Supplier Quality and Safety Assurance Audit. This provides confidence that suppliers are competent to undertake the scope of work, and delivered goods and services will satisfy contracted requirements. The Audit also ensures that suppliers engaged maintain appropriate safety procedures and practices to protect their employees and Defence personnel. We are happy to advise that Chief received a great report and we able to learn a lot from the experience.
