Pittsburgh, March 19, 2018 – Bolsan Company, Inc. (“Bolsan”) today announced that it has been recognized as part of an Elite group of top performing suppliers by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics for 2017.

The recognition is based on Bolsan having achieved outstanding performance levels in quality and delivery throughout 2017.

Commenting on the award, Shimtech Group Chief Executive, Howard Kimberley, said:

“Lockheed Martin quite rightly demands the highest levels of performance from its global supply chain, and requires partners who can harness innovation but remain agile to deliver competitive advantage in both cost and quality.

“To be recognized as an Elite supplier is an outstanding achievement by Bolsan and a fitting testament to the hard work, dedication and commitment of a highly professional team.”
