The Challenge: Engineering Under Tight Tolerances and Timelines

In the aerospace industry, standards are high. Even non-flight-critical parts need to meet rigorous quality control criteria. This means panels, housings, interior and exterior trim, ducting, trays and other components need to be manufactured exactly to spec using engineering-grade materials that can deliver flight-ready performance — all within a tight production timeline.
