Matrix Composites recognized again by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics.

Matrix Composites (Rockledge, Fla.) announced Feb. 22 Lockheed Martin Aeronautics’ recent recognition of Matrix for its attention to detail and customer commitment in 2012.

Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Co., a builder of military fighter, transport and surveillance aircraft and commercial transport aircraft, relies heavily on its supply base to provide the key and critical components needed to meet their customer’s needs. Matrix Composites became one of Lockheed Martin's suppliers in 1996. Since that time, the company has achieved STAR Supplier status for quality, delivery, responsiveness and process control.

In April 2005, Matrix reprotedly became one of only a few companies worldwide approved to manufacture resin transfer molded carbon fiber structures for the U.S. military's F-22 Raptor aircraft. Since that time, various airframe, fuselage and vertical fin components have been manufactured at the Rockledge facilities.

“In 2012, Matrix Composites successfully delivered their product to us 100 percent on time and with zero quality defects,” said Tom Simmons, VP of supply chain management at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Co. “We’d like to thank Matrix Composites and its employees for their commitment and attention to detail."

Matrix Composites’ president David Nesbitt responded, “We have worked diligently to become one of Lockheed Martin’s top suppliers. The efforts have clearly paid off, and we are thrilled to play such a vital role in the production of the world’s most advanced fighter aircraft."

Matrix Composites is a full service provider to the aerospace and defense industries with particular emphasis on critical structures fabricated with polymeric composites. The company has provided composite design, analysis, tooling, materials testing and manufacturing services since 1993.
