Beta Shim will be closed on Monday 7/3 & Tuesday 7/4 and will resume normal business hours on Wednesday 7/5.
State Representatives Jason Perillo (R-113) and Ben McGorty (R-122) launched a new tour of small businesses throughout Shelton, and started off with Beta Shim manufacturing. They met with Zach Pratt, VP of Manufacturing; John McCue, CEO; Sandra McCue, CFO; and other executives and business industry association leaders for two hours on Tuesday, April 1.
“Particularly in Connecticut’s current business climate, we are very interested in visiting our area businesses and finding out what we can do in the General Assembly to help them be as successful as possible,” said Rep. Perillo. “On this tour, we are looking for more than a photo opportunity, but a true opportunity to learn from a key Shelton manufacturer about what we can do to help make them more successful.”
“Meeting with the folks here at Beta Shim helps us get broader insight into what they do and how they do it,” said Rep. McGorty. “There’s no better way for us to know how to help our regional manufacturers than to spend time with them learning about their business.”
Beta Shim originally made shims, but in the past 10 years has expanded to producing various industrial parts. They have made advances in quality control, increasing the number of machines per person on the line, and have been focusing more on employee training.
Sikorsky is Beta Shim’s largest customer, but since their merger with Lockheed they have done less business with them. Originally Beta Shim was in California, but moved to Norwalk, and then Shelton to be closer to Sikorsky – highlighting the area dependency on suppliers to the aircraft manufacturer.
The Shelton legislators expressed appreciation to Beta Shim for hosting them, and said they will look for opportunities to support their business and other critical manufacturers in the region.
SHELTON, CT – (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Beta Shim, an innovative manufacturing company known for its aerospace solutions, today announced that it will be digitalizing its Work In Progress (WIP) inventory on the Oracle Cloud Platform to give customers such as Lockheed Martin the visibility they require from their suppliers. This new initiative marks a transformational change that reflects a broader and desperate need for digitalization in the manufacturing industry.
“With this new initiative, we can enable WIP traceability with the Oracle-based supply chain IoT platform, eSeal. Today eSeal gives our customers and partners a window into our inventory – further it can be expanded to make our entire supply chain digital. We see this investment as a game-changer for our business,” said Zachariah Pratt, VP of Manufacturing at Beta Shim.
The eSeal platform enables customers to tag and track their inventory down to each individual SKU at every node in their supply chain, creating opportunities for warehouse automation, warranty control, customer relationship management and inventory optimization.
Sunera Technologies, the company behind the award-winning eSeal IoT platform and Platinum level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), has been seeing rapid adoption of supply chain digitalization by manufacturers across the world. Ravi Reddy, CEO of Sunera Technologies said, “In today’s real-time world it has become imperative for manufacturers to track every product, down to its components, across the entire supply chain. Any solution short of this cannot match today’s standards of customer experience. eSeal powers manufacturers’ supply chain, marketing, customer support and compliance in ways that they never deemed possible, and that has contributed to the success of eSeal.”
“Suneratech is a trusted partner that has built business solutions for manufacturing, supply chain, retail, etc., using Oracle Cloud Platform’s PaaS and IaaS services. Customers across these domains have benefited significantly with their innovative solutions. This collaborative supply chain and WIP Digitalization initiative for Beta Shim is a great example of the potential for our collaboration with Suneratech,” said Sanjay Sinha, Vice President of Platform Products, Oracle.
“Beta Shim explored a few different ways to create visibility of their WIP before they engaged with us. eSeal reduced Beta Shim’s upfront investment by more than 70 percent and allowed them to get setup with a target of about eight weeks. But the true value of eSeal is in the improvements it brings to business operations – which Beta Shim should start seeing immediately,” said Sreenivasa Setty, VP and Head of Cloud Solutions at Sunera Technologies.

HARTFORD – U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) announced on Monday that Beta Shim of Shelton is this week’s “Murphy’s Monday Manufacturer.” Founded by John McCue in 1975, Beta Shim is a family-owned and operated manufacturer of machined aerospace components. The Shelton manufacturer provides metal stamping and forming services, CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Turning and Milling, lamination, and other capabilities to customers, including the U.S. Department of Defense and Sikorsky. Murphy toured the facility and hosted an employee town hall on April 13, 2017.
With the help of 56 hardworking Connecticut employees, Beta Shim is, at any given time, prepared to manufacture 10,000 different types of components for Sikorsky. The company even developed their own computer software to track the thousands of work orders in their system. Beta Shim partners with the Housatonic Community College Advanced Manufacturing program to provide internships, training, and full-time employment opportunities to its graduates. The Shelton company is also proud to work closely with various local suppliers, such as Prestige Industrial Finishing, Milford Fabricating Company, and Richards Machine Tool Co Inc.
“I visited Beta Shim last week to see the awesome work they’re doing for Sikorsky, and to learn how I can help them be a part of Sikorsky’s big Black Hawk ramp-up,” said Murphy. “Thanks to the McCue family for their commitment to Connecticut, to Sikorsky, and to all of Beta Shim’s workers.”
The manufacturing industry plays a crucial role throughout Connecticut communities, creating new jobs and accelerating our state’s economic recovery. Today, Connecticut’s 4,600 manufacturers account for 10% of the state’s jobs and 87% of the state’s total exports. In order to protect and grow manufacturing jobs in Connecticut, Murphy has introduced two pieces of legislation that aim to strengthen existing standards and prioritize the purchase of American-made goods, the 21st Century Buy American Act and the American Jobs Matter Act.
Beta Shim will be closed December 24th – January 1st during the 2016 holiday season.
