The US aerospace and defence industry is the largest in the world. It’s a sector that contributes more than $118 billion in export sales to the economy and supports more than half a million jobs.

The pressure on manufacturers to operate at peak efficiency, however, is intensifying. Companies are being forced to overcome challenges new and old as they look to continue growing in a tough economic climate.

“As our business grew we were finding that the kitting of components was delaying the start of production. We consulted LYNQ who came and reviewed the process and developed a new approach for us. The effect was immediate with over 40% reduction in the time required for each kit. The new software was easy to use and LYNQ hand held our team through the change which was live only two months after the first review. Our next projects are already under way.” ­
