Santa Clarita, California, April 18, 2017.  Lamsco West, Inc., part of Shimtech’s Gap Management division, today announced that it has received a Boeing Excellence in Advocacy Award for 2016. The Boeing Company issues the award annually to recognize suppliers who have achieved superior performance in government outreach activities to help government policymakers better understand aerospace issues and promote legislation that support aerospace companies.

Speaking of the award, Shimtech Group Chief Executive, Howard Kimberley said:

“A sustainable, healthy aerospace industry is crucial for all of us; whether as consumers, or contributors to local, national and global economic prosperity via the vast network of suppliers, service providers and the myriad dependents they support.

“At Shimtech, we are proud to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with all of our customers and to highlight the issues that really matter to our industry, so that those responsible for setting and regulating policy are as well informed as they can possibly be.  We were therefore both delighted and honoured that our particular efforts in this regard have been recognized by Boeing.”

“Boeing suppliers are uniquely qualified to speak on behalf of key business issues that strengthens awareness among community leaders, elected officials and decision-makers, said Kent Fisher, Boeing’s leader for enterprise Supplier Management.  The influence of suppliers by engaging with policy makers can foster awareness that provides multiple benefits.

“Our supplier network is one of Boeing’s greatest competitive advantages when it comes to advocating for our shared interests.  Suppliers like Shimtech represent a critical business voice to help decision makers understand the incredible impact that the aerospace industry has on their economies, employment and communities.
