“I’d say there are three or four different groups of suppliers. Some are like GM Nameplate; they say: ‘We understand that the world requires greater and greater competitiveness, so here are our ideas, and here is what we’re doing to lower our prices.’ You have other people who cross their arms; they say: ‘No,’ and they hold tight, and we usually have to find other sources of supply, or figure out ways to get some leverage.” – Pat S., Senior Vice President and General Manager, Boeing Airplane Programs
“When it comes to custom injection molding in aerospace, there are just some items that cannot be compromised. GMN Aerospace by GM Nameplate has constantly hit all of our key metrics as an injection molder. With their in-house tool shop we are assured consistent delivery and repeatability, especially if there is ever tool modification or maintenance need. Add in their decoration capabilities, and GMN Aerospace as an injection molder is not only one of the industry’s best, but one of the best in the world!” – Chris N., New Programs, Jamco America
“We looked hard for a supplier. The market is packed with companies who make promises. But we wanted a partner that could actually deliver – someone who was able to work a design that was in line with the goals of our airline customers and also had the capacity to produce our ship sets on time and at competitive prices. The team at GMN Aerospace has done that consistently. Since they were already an approved supplier to B/E, it was even easier. We are glad they are the supplier on our programs for all our placards.” – Chip K., Senior Buyer, B/E Aerospace
“We recently acquired 757s for our new Hawaii route. When The Boeing Company suggested GMN Aerospace for the exterior graphics, we knew we were in good hands. We not only had access to design support, but also the best materials in the marketplace. Plus, GMN Aerospace’s superGraphics division supported us with their certified in-house installation team who handled 100% of the installation at our Arizona location.” – Ann R., WestJet
