Suppliers Diversity Who's Knocking

Feature Supplier: Accurate Machine & Tool Corporation

Accurate Machine & Tool Corporation Provides Versatility to THAAD Program

Accurate Machine & Tool Corporation (AMT), continues its 12 year partnership as a trusted Lockheed Martin supplier as well as a preferred supplier to the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile program. This woman-owned small business (WOSB) provides electro-mechanical manufacturing, integration and machine shop services, all with a proven track record of delivering unique quality products on time and within budget.

Accurate Machine & Tool stands out above the rest with its versatility and ability to adjust to an ever-changing business landscape. As an example, when the THAAD program required mission critical items to a battery stationed in Guam, the company worked on a 24/7 schedule with only a couple of days’ notice to ensure the items were provided on time.

With its proven track record and being named “Outstanding Small Business of the Year” in 2016 by Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, it’s no surprise that Accurate Machine & Tool was chosen to be a Lockheed Martin protégé under the Department of Defense (DOD) Mentor-Protégé program.

“The mentor protégé relationship between Lockheed Martin and AMT has given AMT the ability to develop new processes, grow their business, and become a long-term sustainable supplier for the DOD Industrial Base. Lockheed Martin selected Accurate Machine & Tool as a protégé because of their core values, outstanding performance, strong commitment to quality, and dedication to employees,” said Donna Clardy, Lockheed Martin Mentor Protégé program manager.

Another benefit of being a Lockheed Martin protégé, procurements made with Accurate Machine & Tool while they are a current protégé is justifiable for a noncompetitive subcontract acquisition.

When asked what advice they would give to small businesses looking to do business with Lockheed Martin or in the industry in general, Norris Simons, AMT-General Manager states to “…know your customer. Communicate. Do what you say and say what you mean. Listen to what it is your customer is requesting.” Sound advice from a top Lockheed Martin supplier.
