Aerospace & Defense
Industry demand is driven by the overall economic, climate, and military budgets. Improving process and operational efficiencies are the keys to maintaining profitability due to global competition.
The industry requires high-quality solutions and quality systems that meet standards such as Nadcap accreditation and AS9100 or ISO certification of facilities, guaranteeing the consistent quality of materials and products.
We have earned a reputation for providing customer collaboration by using DFSS toolsets during the design process which deliver unique solutions that incorporate exotic materials, special geometries, and high precision levels.

United States Industry Overview
Projected the next five years into 2021, industry revenue is forecast to rise at an annualized rate of 2.8% to $243.5 billion. Global and domestic demand for commercial aircraft will continue to drive revenue growth. Moreover, the defense industry is anticipated to pick up as production of key industry platforms such as the F-35 pick up.
Demand from Air Transportation
When demand for air transport increases, so does the need for more aircraft. Additionally, air transport operators may wish to increase their competitive edge by purchasing newer, more fuel-efficient models: a strategy that also increases demand for manufacturers.
Federal Funding for Defense
A significant portion of the industry’s aircraft, engines, and parts are used for military purposes. Therefore, public expenditure on defense and military vehicles indicates demand for these products. When military spending rises, a portion of that increase typically goes toward industry products.
