Future Metals recognized by Lockheed Martin as “Elite Supplier”
Arlington, Texas, 2020
Future Metals is proud to announce that our Texas Division has recently been named an Elite Supplier by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company, representing the top one of a supply base of more than 1,400 suppliers. The prestigious award comes as a result of Future Metals’ contributions to the F-35 Lightning II program. Lockheed Martin recognized 20 small and large businesses that consistently provided outstanding support and high-quality parts while delivering on time in 2019.
Texas Division Manager, Gerardo Ramos, received the award virtually from Lockheed Martin’s Supply Chain Leadership team. Following the receipt of the award, Ramos explained: “To be recognized in this way by one of the giants of the global aerospace and defense industry is a testament to the team’s hard work.” Future Metals John Buckridge is thrilled to receive such great honor. “At Future Metals, we strive to be in class in everything we do; having that effort recognized and vindicated by Lockheed Martin is what continues to drive us to better still. Thank you, Lockheed Martin, for this honor, and thank you to every member of the Future Metals team for your dedication to excellence and all of your hard work.”
Representing the 601 District of Texas, Congressman Ron Wright shared the following message: “Congratulations to Future Metals for being as an Elite Supplier by Lockheed Martin. Future Metals was founded in 1971 and quickly became a leading supplier of aircraft quality metal, tubing, extrusions, sheet, bar, and other products to the aerospace industry in North America. In concert with Lockheed Martin, Future Metals contributes to Texas’s robust manufacturing sector and plays a significant role in our country’s national defense. I’m happy to say that all the employees’ hard work and dedication to become a top supplier in the industry did not go unnoticed. Y’all make the 6th’ District proud!“
Future Metals was recognized with the Elite Supplier Award based on various factors, including delivering reliable, quality parts, products, and services on time and at competitive prices; the alignment of supplier’s values with Lockheed Martin values; and their track of proactively solving problems.
