Jones Metal Products Company has been honored by Lockheed Martin as a top small business supplier for products and services to its Missiles and Fire Control business. In Jones Metal’s case, it was exemplary work by the company’s aluminum heat treating services and customer service personnel that earned the award.
Jones Metal President and CEO Dan Erb and Customer Service Manager Pat Matchett accepted the award in Orlando, Florida, on May 2, 2017. The small business award was shared with 31 other outstanding suppliers to Lockheed Martin’s Missiles and Fire Control business units across the United
States. According to John Varley, vice president of global supply chain at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, “We rely on these companies every day and are glad to recognize their commitment to quality and accountability to help our industry team deliver innovative solutions to our customers.”
In selecting Jones Metal Products, Lockheed Martin praised our aluminum heat treating services for a high rating for quality, combined with a high rating for on-time delivery; the excellence of a 100 percent quality rating and a 99 percent on-time delivery rating together set the scene for successful results to occur.
Our heat treatment services maintain NADCAP approval for aluminum and vacuum heat treatment processes, procedures, and equipment. Living by NADCAP standards has resulted in precise and accurate heat treatment of aluminum parts for all customers (aerospace, defense, and commercial).
The department’s outstanding on-time delivery rating illustrates our commitment to meeting schedules and adjusting schedules to meet urgent customer requirements, such as special weekend delivery and special pick-up and delivery of product. Lockheed Martin cited our willingness to provide communication day and night and on at least one occasion to pick up an order, drive it five hours to our facility, complete a 24 hour heat treating process, and return it all within a 36 hour period.
