Carbon by Design (Oceanside, CA, US) has received the Lockheed Martin Outstanding Small Business Award, which recognizes the dedication of the Carbon by Design team in the support of Lockheed Martin’s aviation and unmanned systems market segments.
Carbon by Design has provided Lockheed Martin its manufacture of unmanned systems and advanced composite structures since 2007.
In December of 2014, the company completed a full facility renovation. These improvements have increased productivity and allowed for teams to work in dedicated labs specifically suited to their unique program requirements.
"This award is the culmination of years of hard work—developing and manufacturing cutting edge unmanned systems for Lockheed Martin," said Dominick Consalvi, CEO of Carbon by Design. "We have been able to develop a phenomenal working relationship with Lockheed Martin supplier managers, engineering teams and Lockheed Martin leadership, which have become the benchmark for how we like to conduct business.”
