Click Bond’s Sales team received an early and unexpected gift this fall. We were notified in late October that ALA, an important global distributor of Click Bond products to the F-35 program, had awarded us the distinction of Outstanding Supplier! The announcement came as a pleasant surprise during the Global Supplier Conference in Naples, Italy.
Supply-chain problems have been an ongoing concern for the aerospace and defense industry, including the F-35, which is a critical program for Click Bond. Leonardo, an F-35 manufacturer in Italy, has relied heavily on ALA to ensure that there is no delay in the delivery of the many parts needed to keep F-35 production rolling along. The constant collaboration between ALA and Click Bond allowed us to adjust to any changes in Leonardo’s production schedule, and diligent forecasting efforts from ALA helped our Production team to ensure orders were accurate and arrived at ALA on schedule.
Thanks to the agility and excellent communication of all three companies, Click Bond managed to deliver on time or even ahead of schedule, helping us to earn this prestigious award! Thanks to everyone involved, including the Production, Quality Assurance, Supply Chain, and Shipping teams, for helping to ensure we met our goal of on-time delivery of parts to this important program!
