We are happy to announce that once again Beta Shim has passed a recent Sikorsky Product/Process Conformity Audit without any nonconformance findings.
In an effort to better serve our customers in the Southern most states we are bringing on board Timothy Collins, to represent Beta Shim in the South Eastern region.
Timothy Collins is a senior aerospace executive with 35 years of proven success in growing multiple precision manufacturing businesses. Tim offers a wealth of knowledge around every Sikorsky helicopter, and his expertise in engineering, quality, supply chain management, manufacturing and reliability has led to significant revenue growth for each of his previous employers.
Starting with his family’s aerospace processing business, Tim has contributed to the success of three precision aerospace companies throughout his career. The driving force behind Tim’s success is rooted in his ability to gain certification as a qualified vendor to Sikorsky, GE Engines, Spirit Aerosystems, Lycoming, Boeing and many others. His tenacity and comprehensive understanding of precision manufacturing resulted in taking one business from a $1.3M to a $14M valuation, and he helped another double its sales from $7.5M to $15M. In addition, Tim was also directly responsible for increasing a company’s aerospace commercial and defense sales from $0 to over $20M.
Throughout his career, Tim has become a subject matter expert around all Sikorsky-model helicopters as well as the components and assemblies found within. As a Sikorsky vendor for more than 30 years, he has supported the development and repair of military and commercial aircraft including the Presidential helicopter, with special flight safety requirements, the S-60 Black Hawk, S-76, CH -53 E/D, SH-3, Sea Hawk and S-92.
Beta Shim was just recently audited to renew our AS9100C certificate and we are proud to announce no major or minor infractions were found. Beta Shim continues its commitment to excellence in meeting our customers requirements and expectations.
In an effort to continually improve our quality management system and enhance customer satisfaction Beta Shim has upgraded its CMM capabilities. The newly acquired CMM has 640 x 500 (mm – axis travel), with TP20 modules. It is equipped with a Renishaw PH10T motorized head for very fast probe alignment changes. These new upgrades along with a decade of CMM experience will allow us to meet future customer requirements.
Beta Shim has appointed Kevin McCue as company safety director. We will continue to implement improvements and ensure our workplace maintains the highest level of safety, while striving to meet all OSHA and federal safety regulations.
