Stanley Access Technologies Awarded Platform Screen Door Project at Munich, Germany Airport.
Bombardier Transportation awards Stanley Access Technologies our largest Platform Screen Door (PSD) project for the Munich, Germany Airport at $3.6M! PSD systems are integrated automatic doors utilized on Automated People Mover (APM) and mass transit (e.g. subway) systems found in airports or urban areas. SAT works directly with the OEM suppliers of the APMs in developing custom doors and firmware that is integrated into the entire train system to enhance passenger safety, security and comfort in the station platform areas. A few of SAT’s past and current projects include MGM City Center in Las Vegas, Doha Airport in Qatar, Sacramento Airport, Orlando Airport, and Oakland Airport to name a few.
Due to the size of the award Bombardier Transportation (BT) required SAT to have a two-day Supplier Evaluation and Approval audit conducted at our Farmington, CT facility. The stringent, comprehensive audit covered our Business Management, Engineering & Design, Quality Assurance, and Plant Operations processes and performance. Not only did SAT pass the audit, but we achieved the highest overall grade given by the auditors to date.
As stated within the report, “…the evaluation team was very impressed by Stanley Access Technologies’ processes and key performance indicators, particularly on the manufacturing (shop) floor and in Engineering Innovation”. Passing the audit makes SAT an approved BT supplier for PSD systems with potential growth as a supplier of vehicle (train) door components (e.g. operators) as well. It also gives SAT visibility throughout the BT organization as a PSD supplier for mass transit applications worldwide.
But the story doesn’t end there. This month BT awarded SAT the Newark International Airport Monorail PSD Capital Asset Replacement Plan (CARP) contract to upgrade 96 PSDs for a total contract price of over $1.4M! This unique business vertical is showing great potential for future growth as PSD use expands into mass transit applications.
