MANUFACTURERS OF HIGH INTEGRITY FASTENERS FOR THE AEROSPACE INDUSTRY

TO TABLE OF CONTENTS


History M.S. Aerospace Inc. was established on June 1, 1992, with some very big ideas. The original facility was located on Foothill Boulevard in Sylmar, California, coincidentally just a few miles from the current manufacturing facility. The Company’s simple strategy was to position itself as a customer-responsive niche player in the high temperature, high strength aerospace bolts, studs, pins and screws market serving the jet and rocket engine industry. The Company entered this market serving the most demanding customers in the industry manufacturing the most challenging and superior quality high strength fasteners. In the short term, the depressed aerospace market of 1992 and 1993 compelled the Company to distinguish itself by concentrating these core strengths: unrivaled quality, significantly shorter lead times and superior service. In this way, the Company was able to maintain tremendous growth even during an industry wide recession. M.S. Aerospace soon gained a formidable reputation as a manufacturer capable of consistently producing world-class fasteners in impressive lead times, with the integrity and documentation required by an increasingly demanding marketplace. In January 1994, the original M.S. Aerospace facility in Sylmar, California was destroyed as a result of the Northridge earthquake. Although a profound blow to the start up company, M.S. Aerospace secured another building in Burbank, California and was back in full production by the beginning of February 1994, just two weeks after the earthquake, and just four days after moving into the new building. This dynamic move and recovery exemplified the “can do� spirit which drives the Company today. The process of rebuilding the Company began immediately and was successful beyond expectations. By the end of 1994, M.S. Aerospace has secured General Electric Aircraft Engines approval with a 100% quality rating. The growth of the Company continued through 1995 and 1996, most significantly attributable to providing Pratt and Whitney and General Electric with impeccable quality jet engine fasteners in very short lead times. Not surprisingly, M.S. Aerospace outgrew its Burbank facility and by the end of 1997, moved into a brand new purpose built facility in the Cascades Business Park in Sylmar, California. Unabated growth of M.S. Aerospace continued, driven by the ability of the Company to provide its customers with an unrivaled level of service, and the very best critical-application aerospace bolts in the industry. During this period, the Company gained ISO9001 and AS9100 certifications, NADCAP accreditations of its Lab and Non Destructive Testing as well as many new OEM approvals. Such was its rate of growth that in June 2004, M.S. Aerospace moved once again, still within the Cascades Business Park in Sylmar, California, to another purpose built facility which more than doubled its previous space, adding a new NADCAP accredited Thermal Treatment facility. In addition, the Company added in-house cleaning, passivation, lube and drilling, all designed to integrate the manufacturing process and elevate quality control even beyond its already superior status. M.S. Aerospace continues to go from strength to strength, still serving the most demanding customers in the industry while adding many high strength, high fatigue structural and landing system parts, medical parts, and other high performance parts to its portfolio. As it continues to grow, M.S. Aerospace looks forward to serving its customers with consistent reliability, quality, integrity and service by continuing to build on its knowledge and experience in high strength, close tolerance and high temperature fastener market. The commitment of M.S. Aerospace to continuing improvement is prominent in every business decision made, and the dedication of the Company to providing its customers with the very best product and service means its customers will receive the best value possible.

President’s Letter M.S.Aerospace has a simple vision: To be the finest manufacturer of Aerospace Fasteners in the world. Since the inception of M.S. Aerospace in June 1992, we have dedicated ourselves to achieving this goal by focusing on the needs of our customers through Quality, Service, Reliability, Value, and Integrity. Thanks to these principles, M.S.Aerospace has developed a strong reputation as a leading manufacturer of high strength, high temperature, and close tolerance fasteners in the aerospace industry. We claim with pride that M.S.Aerospace delivers the best, most reliable aerospace bolts, studs, pins, and screws that are available in the market today. M.S.Aerospace has the advantage of having the best employees in the business with the experience, expertise, dedication, and vision to take a leadership role in responding to the requirements of an increasingly demanding marketplace. Our employees are constantly trained and retrained to world-class standards, and enable M.S.Aerospace to be the most dynamic and fastest-growing aerospace fastener manufacturer in the world. M.S.Aerospace demonstrates genuine Continuous Improvement through management commitment, millions of dollars of investment in new equipment, including significant automation, CNC machinery, environmental improvements, and a complete 14,000 square foot thermal treatment department. Our most important strategic investment has been a new purpose built 100,000 square foot facility. This allows us to bring in-house and under one roof, all the processes required to manufacture the complete line of superior fasteners for which we are known. M.S.Aerospace never compromises with regards to the quality of our systems, processes, testing, inspection, or certification, and so has developed a well-deserved reputation for quality, integrity and honesty in all aspects of our business dealings. It is this dedication to the details which has made us such a strong partner on the Space Shuttle and International Space Station Programs, and our facility has twice been visited by NASA astronauts in recognition of our contributions to Manned Space Flight hardware. M.S.Aerospace takes real pride in our success, and in partnership with our valued customers. We will serve the aerospace industry with the best fasteners available for all your applications for years to come. Michel Szostak
