WICHITA, KS — Aerospace parts and assemblies manufacturer HM Dunn Aerosystems Inc. recently announced the company has completed the relocation of its offices from Fort Worth, TX to here, where it has two manufacturing sites.
Over the past two-plus years, the company has diversified its business from 30 percent defense and other industrial to 65 percent defense and other industrial; consolidated from five sites to three sites and relocated its company offices. The company also operates an aerospace parts processing and bonding facility in Oklahoma.
The company is currently expanding its West Wichita facility that will be the future home for its new North American Low Cost Aerospace Machining partnership (NALCAM). The NALCAM partnership will provide the aerospace industry access to HM Dunn's U.S.-based small business manufacturing network.
“This is a critical time in our country and our industry,” says Dave Wiseman, head of the company’s Supply Chain efforts. “We have a network of some of the most capable U.S.-based small business manufacturers in the world. This provides our customers a competitive advantage and the ability to procure parts and assemblies more efficiently and cost effectively while they focus on their core business as an OEM or Tier one.”
“Our internal capability combined with our network of U.S.-based suppliers provides customers one-stop shopping for their sheet metal and machined parts, small assembly and large assembly needs,” says Greg Valcoure the company’s head of operations and quality.
HM Dunn produces aerospace parts and assemblies for Lockheed Martin’s F-35, F-16, C-130 and P-3 programs; Boeing’s KC-46, B-52, KC-135, F-15 and F-18 programs; Gulfstream’s G550, G500, G600; and other select defense and industrial programs. The company also produces parts and assemblies for both Boeing and Airbus commercial programs.
