Editors Corner “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.You’re on your own. And you know what you know. You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.” Dr. Seuss “Now that you’ve graduated, just remember: Bosses don’t usually accept notes from your mother.” Melanie White Inspiring Words for New Graduates, Excerpts From Robert Reich To the Class of 2012 “As a former secretary of labor and current professor, I feel I owe it to you to tell you the truth about the pieces of parchment you’re picking up today. You’re f*cked.Well, not exactly. But you won’t have it easy. First, you’re going to have a hell of a hard time finding a job. The job market you’re heading into is still bad. Fewer than half of the graduates from last year’s class have as yet found full-time jobs. Most are still looking. That’s been the pattern over the last three graduating classes: It’s been taking them more than a year to land the first job. And those who still haven’t found a job will be competing with you, making your job search even harder. Contrast this with the class of 2008, whose members were lucky enough to get out of here and into the job market before the Great Recession really hit. Almost three-quarters of them found jobs within the year.” Wow, what dismal times these were for our new graduates. Well, thankfully our graduates in 2019 will have a much easier time finding jobs. Employers plan to hire 16.6 percent more new graduates from the Class of 2019 than they did from the Class of 2018, according to results of NACE’s Job Outlook 2019 survey. This year marks the best initial hiring outlook since the Class of 2007. An improved economy, company growth, anticipated retirements, and a focus on early talent/ succession planning were reasons cited almost universally among those planning to hire. In addition, several others in this group reported that they plan to concentrate on converting more interns to full-time hires, thus increasing their overall hiring numbers. Now let’s talk about hiring managers. Let’s face it — the hiring process is painful, and not just because you have to look through reams of résumés. From posting job listings to conducting several rounds of candidate interviews to ultimately making a selection and then training a new employee, the time and money required to fill a vacant role add up quickly. According to the Society for Human Resource Management, it costs an average of $4,129 to hire a new employee. Considering this process takes an average of 42 days, it’s clear that you want to get it right the first time. And just because you’ve made a candidate an offer and he or she has accepted it doesn’t mean you’re out of the woods. In fact, Tinypulse reports that 22 percent of turnovers occur within the first 45 days of an employee starting a new job. Without an effective onboarding process, you’re setting your business — and your new hire — up for failure. On the other hand, an effective and engaging onboarding program allows companies to retain 91 percent of new hires for at least a year, according to the same research. Make one of your competitive advantages your hiring and retention programs.The results will be so beneficial to your company! Until next issue, I wish you successful hiring and God Bless Our Troops!

Leading manufactur ing activity indicators point to healthy but gradually cooling momentum in 2019. Slower global growth, lingering trade tensions, and reduced fiscal stimulus will weigh on growth while elevated private sector confidence, a solid labor market, and a more dovish Fed support activity.” The Cutting Tool Market Report is jointly compiled by AMT and USCTI, two trade associations representing the development, production, and distribution of cutting tool technology and products. It provides a monthly statement on U.S. manufacturers’ consumption of the primary consumable in the manufacturing process — the cutting tool. Analysis of cutting tool consumption is a leading indicator of both upturns and downturns in U.S. manufacturing activity, as it is a true measure of actual production levels.

Announcements & Releases Continued the Cutting Tool Market Report collaboration, was down 4.4 percent from January’s $215.1 million and up 8 percent when compared with the $190.3 million reported for February 2018. With a year-to-date total of $420.7 million, 2019 is up 13 percent when compared with 2018. These numbers and all data in this report are based on the totals reported by the companies participating in the CTMR program. The totals here represent a significant market share of the U.S. market for cutting tools. “The 8 percent year over year increase posted in February reflects the continuing strength in the U.S. manufacturing base,” said Phil Kurtz, president of USCTI. “We are hearing of signs that the market’s growth rate may slow later this year but February’s results are getting the year off to a good start.” According to Greg Daco, chief U.S. economist at Oxford Economics: “Cutting tool shipments are off to a solid start in 2019, bucking the trend of cooler momentum in the broader durable goods A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

Honeywell Awarded $150M For Advanced Turbine Propulsion Development

Phoenix Partners With Recycling Companies To Turn Plastic Into Fuel The Phoenix Public Works Department’s new partnership with Renew Phoenix plans to turn low-value plastics into fuel. This decision comes after China decided to no longer accept certain recycled materials from the U.S., according to a press release. This forced the city of Phoenix to find new, creative solutions for its recycled material. “This a perfect example of theTeam Phoenix approach, where the city and business community come together to create a public-private partnership to build the city’s circular economy,” Councilman Michael Nowakowski said in a statement. “This new venture will benefit all residents and businesses while encouraging others to bring next-generation technology to the city of Phoenix to help us create a healthier planet for our children.” Renew Phoenix, a joint venture between Renewlogy and Generated Materials Recovery, will work to build a facility to process the materials on Phoenix’s Resource Innovation Campus.

Honeywell Aerospace was awarded a contract for work on the Advanced Turbine Technologies for Affordable Mission, or ATTAM, Capability Phase I program, the Defense Department announced.

Renew Phoenix plans to convert the material by using a chemical recycling process to reverse the plastic to basic molecules that allow them to be changed into fuel.

02/16/10 The competitive contract, valued at $150 A2Z Metalworker million, was won by Honeywell Aerospace, 1/3headquartered page square - 5 3/8 x 5 3/8" in Phoenix, after consideration

The project is expected to convert 10 tons of plastic waste a day, which is equal to 60 barrels of fuel.

of 54 offers, according to the Air Force Research Laboratory.

Work on the program will be to develop, demonstrate, and transition advanced turbine propulsion, power and thermal technologies to provide improvement in affordable mission capability. This approach extends to a range of legacy, emerging, and future military propulsion, power and thermal technology needs in a variety of applications, the Pentagon said.

“Renewlogy is excited about bringing our technology to Phoenix and creating a more circular economy around plastic waste locally,” Priyanka Bakaya, founder and CEO of Renewlogy, said in the release.

Honeywell’s work under the contract is expected to be completed by February 2027.

“Phoenix will serve as a model for cities around the country looking for local solutions for plastic waste.”

Contracts for similar work on the ATTAM program have been awarded to several companies, including a $19.9 million deal for Lockheed Martin, a $20 million deal for Northrop Grumman, a $250 million deal for GE Aviation, a $250 million deal for Pratt and Whitney and a $100 million deal for Rolls-Royce. By Ed Adamczyk

This is the latest project in the city’s Reimagine Phoenix initiative to increase the city’s waste diversion rate and ultimately reach zero plastic waste by 2050.

Albina Co. Inc.

Spiral - noun 1. a three-dimensional curve (such as a helix) with one or more turns about an axis 2. a unique hard to find steel bending capability you will find at Albina Co. Inc. Albina Co. Inc. is celebrating 80 years in the steel bending industry!The family owned and operated company, located in a suburb of Portland, Oregon, in Tualatin, specializes in bending all forms of structural steel, square and rectangular tubing, tube and pipe, and plate, as well as custom fabrication. Albina Co., Inc. is truly a one stop shop — they produce virtually any metal component that requires a bend or curve without the use of pre-formed fittings.

Jaime And Brian In Front Of A Sculpture At The Albina Campus; It Depicts Their Unique Spiral Bending Capabilities (Channel, Square & Rectangular Materials)

Albina has provided bent steel for some of the nation’s most notable construction projects, including many high profile buildings, stadiums and structures. But while their structural projects are high profile and often aesthetically beautiful, the company is unique in the wide range of products they can manufacture, both in the scope of materials and in the relative size. Albina bends rounds as small as .188 “ OD (e.g. the diameter of a straw) up to 28” OD, wide flange up to W40 x 183#, angle up to 8” x 8” x 1¼” and all mill produced sizes of channel. Albina can also bend the smallest up to the largest sizes of hollow structural sections (HSS) to come out of modern tube mills; in fact Albina has the capacity to bend HSS that is larger than standard mill produced sizes.

Albina’s Beginnings Albina was founded as a pipe-bending blacksmith shop in a barn in 1939 by 3 owners, and John Smith was the company’s first employee. John left the company to serve in World War II, and when he returned, he learned that the business was for sale. After a discussion with his wife Verna, the young couple made the bold decision to purchase the business. Under John’s tenure, Albina grew to become a fabrication shop with expertise in bending any form of steel. As the company evolved, its work in plate, angle, channel, beam and hollow structural sections soon outgrew the pipe projects. John’s son Bill too proudly served our country, doing a tour in Vietnam after graduating from Portland State University. Once he returned from Vietnam, he came back into the family business, eventually taking it over as the 2nd generation Smith. Under Bill’s reign, the business tripled in size and the company moved to a new larger location, in a 17,000 square foot building that sat on an acre of land in NE Portland. Like his father Bill, Brian worked in the business during summers and holidays. He too made the decision to make the family business his career after he had graduated from college with a degree in business and entrepreneurship from the University of Colorado. By all accounts, business has been good at Albina, so good that they outgrew the facility they were in. In 2001, the company moved to its current location, occupying 50,000 square feet sitting on 5 acres. Under the leadership of 3rd generation Smiths, Brian and his wife Jaime, the company has grown 4-fold.

You Can’t Grow Unless You Embrace Technology When Brian and Jaime took over, they began to explore ways to utilize technology for productivity improvements. Brian says it was back in 2011 that the company began aggressively investing in digital (CNC) A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

Rio Vista Recreation Center Peoria, Arizona (Structural Steel Bent by Albina Co. Inc.) technologies. Brian is an avid reader, and he had learned much about ‘Industry 4.0’ and the IoT (Internet of Things). He recognized that to ensure the success of the company over the next decades,Albina had to invest in technologies that would enable data gathering and data analysis. These technologies, he knew, would facilitate Albina’s path for continuous improvement. He and his IT consultant developed an infrastructure based on the IPad mini. The company rolled out its first IPads to staff in late 2018, and today the entire shop staff is equipped with one. Brian says, “Through the software we have developed and with the IPads, our staff can instantaneously measure each machine’s uptime.We want to know what each job is actually costing to manufacture, and if an operator has a holdup, we want to fix whatever is causing it.” The IPads are also used to access mill test reports, production schedules, shift schedules, and even photographs of proper machine set-ups. Jaime Smith serves as the company’s marketing director. Jaime says, “While a key focus for Brian is to continue to evaluate new technologies for our production, I too recognized that our marketing strategies had to align with our customers’ new buyers, often millenials.” She continued, “To embrace

Today, Albina has integrated QR codes into their physical marketing materials, including on their business cards. Through the QR codes, buyers can download the full company directory, and select the contacts they want in their database. Customers also have access to calculators on Albina’s website to assist with complicated bending computations such as spiral bending math.

Jaime says, “We had the idea that our customers would value seeing their orders as they progressed through the shop, so we created a picture vault individualized to each customer.Through it, they can see their order at every stage – raw material, production, quality control, and packing – and their pictures can be sorted by purchase order.” A sampling of the positive feedback the company has received: “The vault gives us a little window into your world and provides some reassurance for purchasing agents and project managers that things are going according to plan.” “Very cool that you’re able to keep customers in the loop with their order’s progression while being fabricated. Certainly a plus and reassuring to see them coming along!” Jaime and Brian were honored when they were asked to participate (along with a collective of other AISC bender/rollers) in the development of the first ever Design Guide of its kind in the US offering information on the fabrication, design and detailing of curved metal products.The end reference book, titled Design Guide 33 ‘Curved Member Design’ was released in October of 2018. Jaime says the initiative was a collaboration between AISC (American Institute of Steel Construction) and members of the AISC Bender Roller Committee.

Investment Inevitably Includes New Machines In the last few years, Albina has purchased new machinery. One such investment was the Davi MCP30, the first type of bending machine with the ‘iRoll’ smart camera system. Brian says that the MCP30 has the ability to learn and remember Curved Aluminum Pipe how different materials bend, where the rolls need Sections; An Example Of to be positioned, and how much spring back is Smaller, Repeatable Parts associated with a bend/material. The iRoll smart Made At Albina camera system allows Albina operators to create a template on the computer/control panel and the curved member is then overlaid on the template to confirm accuracy. They also upgraded the shop with a new CNC Plasma Cutter, the Bend-Tech Dragon A400 Plasma Cutter, which enables commercial grade tube cutting to length, coping / end prep, cutting holes, engraving and marking.

There are others throughout the country that provide bending, but few companies can actually provide the full range of bending services that Albina can provide and still meet the end user’s quality requirements. She adds, “You will have difficulty finding a company that offers spiral bending. Brian says, “We are able to bend spirals from very large sections of HSS — many spiral bends we provide have faces larger than 8” (in fact we have spiral bent HSS as large as 20” x 12” and could bend even larger sections). Our spiral bending capabilities are extremely specialized and it would be very difficult to find another company that can outperform Albina. We accomplished this by introducing a unique invention/process, combining a commercially available induction heating unit with an extremely sturdy frame, a homemade feeding system, and a hydraulic unit that imparts just a bit of camber and twist at the same time.” Jaime adds that while bending and delivering large spiral bent stringers isn’t cheap, Albina’s reputation for this unique capability means that customers all over the country come to them for their spiral requirements. Companies that want spiral bends to be on-time and done correctly (the first time) come to Albina based on their impeccable reputation.

Fiore explains, “We lost 5.7 points on production, but you have to consider that February only has 28 days, which means fewer manufacturing days.And even though we try to account for that, this will still affect production numbers.” He indicates also that the severe weather experience by much of the country this past month caused a number of factory shutdowns that most likely contributed to the Production Index’s weaker expansion performance. Employment and Inventories The Employment Index registered 52.3 percent in February, a decrease of 3.2 percentage points when compared to the January reading of 55.5 percent, indicating growth in employment in February for the 29th consecutive month. “Employment continued to expand, but at the lowest level since November 2016, when the index registered 51.6 percent,” says Fiore. The Inventories Index registered 53.4 percent in February, an increase of 0.6 percentage point from the 52.8 percent reported for January.

ISM: PMI Expands, Manufacturing on the Upswing The PMI report, issued by The Institute for Supply Management, showed that manufacturing expanded in February, as the PMI registered 54.2 percent, a decrease of 2.4 percentage points from the January reading of 56.6 percent, indicating growth in manufacturing for the 30th consecutive month. Timothy Fiore, chair of the Institute for Supply Management Manufacturing Business Survey Committee, expresses optimism about the direction of manufacturing, adding, “Another six months as similar levels would be great.” Fiore says after a rough few months, the manufacturing sector appears to be hitting its stride. New Orders and Production Fiore comments that new orders was strong in February, registering 55.5 percent in February, which is a decrease of 2.7 percentage points when compared to the 58.2 percent reported for January.

Flex-Pro’s Growth Drives Yet Another Haas VF-4SS Machine Tool Purchase

Do you ever wonder why you see tremendous disparity in seemingly like businesses? In our industry, 2 precision manufacturing shops can start up at the same time. They can both offer superior quality parts, delivered on time (for the most part), and their pricing can be similar. Yet one shop is far exceeding the other in terms of growth. Why? If you look at Flex-Pro, you will see growth that is far surpassing the ‘industry average’. Just look at the progress from their inception (2013) to today, 6 years later.

Building Size 2013 – 900 Square Feet 2014 – 1800 Square Feet 2015 – 5500 Square Feet 2018 – 11,000 Square Feet

That’s 11+ fold Growth!

The company has a dedicated sales person on staff - Kim Carpenter worked

Machines 2013 – 2 used machines 2014 – 3 used machines, 1 new machine (this was the last year Flex-Pro purchased a used machine) 2019 – 12 machines, 7 mills and 5 lathes, with 1 new machine on order Just what accounts for Flex-Pro’s progression?There are so many factors, too many to mention. A few stand out as particularly significant, and warrant discussion. • The 3 owner/partners are Journeyman machinists • The company has a dedicated sales person on staff • The company views its people as its most important asset • The company continues to invest in technology • The company mantra is ‘consistent and sustainable’ growth • The company values loyalty

Owners are Journeyman machinists – Partners Tommy Le, Sau (Sammy)

and over the course of their years, even worked together. Tommy says, “We learned what worked well and what didn’t work so well. We knew what we wanted as employees, to be valued, to have benefits, and to be able to make parts with the right equipment and technology.” Sau added, “This is the environment we try hard to offer for our team.”The fact that the owners are experienced machinists (and programmers) means that they are available not only to machine parts, but they can mentor inexperienced new hires in best practices.


with the 3 partners at their previous employers in the valley, and the partners knew his capabilities in sales.They hired Kim in November of 2015, and Tam says Kim has been instrumental in bringing on new customers. Tommy says, “We all have a very good understanding of the types of customers and the work we excel at and that which doesn’t fit in our shop. Kim too has this understanding, so we bring in customers where there is a mutual fit.” Today, Kim is Vice President handling marketing and sales for Flex-Pro.

The company views its people as its most important asset - Sau says, “We’ve all

had great employers and places where you didn’t even want to come to work. Kim can bring in customers, Tommy can buy great machines, but if we don’t have great people, we won’t win in business.” Today, FlexPro offers its employees medical, vision and dental insurance, as well as paid holidays and vacations.

Kim says, “We continue to build a great team that consists of experienced mac hinists as well as inexperienced, eager people. I am especially proud of our 3 Millenials, Monica,Vu and Fhuc who have been with us for 3-5 years now (pictured top right on this page). These young individuals came into the company in entrée level positions, Monica a receptionist and Vu and Fhuc in deburr and maintenance.Today, Monica is our internal auditor for ISO/AS9100 certification, she does purchasing, and she is our Office Manager.Vu is not only a machinist — he has personally taken the lead in helping new people acclimate into our environment. Fhuc too is an excellent machinist today, and you will always hear these 3 young people ask ‘What else can I do for the business?’” Monica says, “I came to the company 3 years ago, and today I am still here because I value my team members and love working for a company where we all feel like family.” Tam adds, “I am so proud of our team, of their strong desire to keep our promises to customers, to always strive to make quality parts, and how they are willing to learn new things. In our shop, everyone pitches in to help a department that is overloaded.”

The company continues to invest in technology – In its first year or so in business, the owners purchased used machines. This is extremely common for a young machine shop, as it is difficult to secure financing when you have no prior track record. Tommy says, “As soon as we could, we began buying only new machines.”

Flex-Pro purchases its mills from Ellison Machinery, and today owns 7 mills. Sau says, “We continue to purchase the Haas VF-4SS Super-Speed Vertical Machining Center with 4th Axis Rotaries.They are well-priced, dependable machines, and the fact that they are made in the USA means that we have easy access to parts, often same or next day. Also, not only do they have an outstanding finance package, but the sales and service support we get from Chris Hansen and Ellison Machinery is very good. Chris just makes it happen when we need help from Ellison Machinery.” Tommy adds, “Chris is professional and knowledgeable. He isn’t just a good sales person but he is also a friend. He doesn’t oversell; he helps us to secure the machine we need.” He continued, “Chris is an advisor/partner for our team.” Just a year after opening for business, the Flex-Pro partners made the decision to certify to ISO 9001 and AS9100. They continue to upgrade their certifications with the latest standards. They are also in the early stages of implementing an ERP system. Kim says, “We opened up a whole new market – aerospace – when we achieved certification, and this market is a prime target market for a group of Journeyman machinist owners. The Flex-Pro partners don’t know the Ellison Machinery Service Technicians. “They have such a large staff of Service Technicians”, Sau says, “That its different people. Also, we don’t have issues with the machines too often.”

The company mantra is ‘consistent and sustainable’ growth – Sau says, “It is so important to crawl before you walk and then again before you run. At Flex-Pro, we all have big dreams, but we know that our best opportunity to succeed is to grow consistently and methodically. We’ve seen too many shops take on more than they were ready for, and they failed.”

Kim adds, “We are a very good shop for production, complex parts.We know what we do well, and we are getting better about only taking on work that our shop excels at.”

The company values loyalty - Tommy says, “When we were a brand new business, there were suppliers who went out of their way to support us. There were also a small number of customers, most notably Lynch Brothers, who gave us an opportunity.These early customers are still with us today and they hold a special place in our hearts.”

Albuquerque Solar Co. Announces Second NM Expansion

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA-LOS ANGELES P 888.282.3292 | F 714.736.9835 sales@upmet.com

conditioning services late last year due to client demand, Wallace and Komnick said. NM Solar Group’s last expansion came in 2017 when it bought a facility in Alamogordo, Business First reported. Other solar companies are expanding as well, including Albuquerque’s Affordable Solar, which is looking to hire dozens.

Albuquerque-based NM Solar Group is expanding again, this time to the Southeast region of the state. In January, the four-year-old company was awarded $70,576 in Job Training Incentive Program dollars for the addition of eight new employees, the majority of which will be solar installers, for the move. Founder Ryan Wallace said the company is in the process of purchasing a 10,000-squarefoot facility located between Dexter and Roswell to support the operation. The facility, according to Wallace, has a price tag of $250,000, and the company will spend around $300,000 in renovations. The deal is expected to close in the coming weeks, and the company will look to add a total of 20 to 25 employees as part of the expansion, he said. The firm employs a total of 72, according to Grant and Marketing Manager Lauren Komnick.

Bringing more solar jobs to New Mexico could mean more well-paying positions. The average hourly wage of the eight employees NM Solar was awarded JTIP money for will be $19.19, according to New Mexico Economic Development Department documents. By Collin Krabbe, Albuquerque Business First so many different opinions on what traits are necessary for success—and the reason that so many of them contradict each other—is that successful people are complex.They have a wide variety of paradoxical skills that they call upon as needed, like a mechanic with a well-stocked toolbox.

Manufacturing Index Improves In March According to the Institute for Supply Management, manufacturing strengthened in March, helped by gains in new orders, production and employment.

NM Solar Group is also in the process of relocating its Albuquerque headquarters to Rio Rancho, Wallace said. The new corporate office, 4140 Jackie Road, will include office and warehouse space.

The Tempe, Ariz.-based group’s manufacturing index, known as the PMI, improved to 55.3 percent, according to a monthly report. That was up from 54.2 percent in February. March also had the second-best PMI in the past four months.

NM Solar Group raked in $9.5 million in revenue last year. Most of the firm’s business comes from the commercial and residential markets. It expects to see $25 million in revenue this year, which Wallace said is on par with company growth trends.

“Overall, it’s a good month,” Timothy R. Fiore, chair of ISM’s Manufacturing Business Survey Committee, said on a conference call. “We’re running at a pretty decent clip here.”

The employee-owned company also began providing roofing and air

The PMI is considered a leading indicator, meaning it’s a sign of what may be ahead in the economy. The ISM report is based on

ARIZONA IRON SUPPLY, INC. Proudly Offering A Complete Steel Inventory For 41 Years

An Arizona Spaceport? This Group Wants To Make It Happen The Arizona Spaceport Alliance wants the state to be front and center in the space race. Specifically, the group is raising awareness for the need to build a spaceport in the state to increase the economic development of Arizona’s burgeoning aerospace manufacturing industry.

Complete Inventory of Ornamental Iron Supplies • Twisted Rope • Hammered Tubing • Scrolls • Flower Elements • Hand Forged • Decorative Bars

With 1,200 companies in the industry, from traditional to supply chain, giving out more than $5 billion in payroll annually in Arizona, the two founders of the Scottsdale-based alliance are questioning why the state doesn’t follow in the footsteps of the eight states with a spaceport, such as Texas, Florida and California.

• And Many More


130 S 23RD ST, PHOENIX, AZ 85034



Karyn MacVean and Benjamin Hernandez started the Arizona Spaceport Alliance a year ago and are leaders of the aerospace practice group at commercial real estate firm Keyser. The founders are spreading the word and gathering interested companies to show the benefits of building an Arizona spaceport.“Arizona is very competitive in the aerospace market, but there is a gaping hole in the market because we don’t have a spaceport,” Hernandez said. “In the end, there’s no way for a company who needs to test their products in space to do that in Arizona. The Valley is home to large aerospace companies such as Honeywell Aerospace, Able Aerospace Services, Northrop Grumman Corp. and Iridium Satellite LLC. Tucson also has many aerospace companies including Raytheon Co. Missile Systems and Vector Space Systems Inc. The state is perfect for a spaceport because of the number of days with sunshine, clear skies to fly, a strong aerospace manufacturing market, a strong university system and NASA project cooperation, Hernandez said.

Nikola unveils five zero-emission vehicles at Scottsdale event Nikola Motor Co. CEO Trevor Milton showed off five zero-emission, electric vehicles last month at a flashy public event at WestWorld in Scottsdale.

Milton arrived to the stage sitting atop a wagon pulled by the Budweiser Clydesdales to represent one of the company’s biggest clients, Anheuser-Busch. The beer giant ordered 800 Nikola trucks as part of its sustainability efforts. “We’ve invested over $1 billion in our drivetrain,” Milton said. “We already had the technology, so we wanted to create some extra beautiful brands. We wanted something that’s unique and beautiful.” Nikola plans to build a 1 million-square-foot electric semi-truck plant in Coolidge and is almost finished with its research and development office and headquarters in Phoenix where it plans to hire 300. Nikola also plans to build a fuel cell development laboratory in the Valley, but has not yet announced a location or a date when that would occur. Milton called his Phoenix-based company the “iPhone of trucking,” saying he wanted to only hire engineers with no previous trucking experience so they had no preconceived notions of what could be built in a new trucking company. The company said it planned to hire more than 2,000 people for A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

More than 2,000 people from 49 countries attended the first night of the two-day event as Milton introduced key executives and brought out Gov. Doug Ducey, who was a big part of luring Nikola to the Valley in January 2018. “All we really want from you is to have wild success,” Ducey told Milton. “We’re thrilled you’re here.” The five Nikola vehicles debuted to the public for the first time were: Nikola Reckless, an autonomous-capable, electric military allterrain vehicle, was driven onto the stage via remote control.

“The Reckless has all the mission critical versatility needed,” Christian said. “It’s built to solve the complex problems for the military.” The Nikola NZT (Net Zero Toll) off-highway vehicle is a fully-enclosed, electric, highperformance vehicle that looks more like a vehicle and less like a “plastic, off-road toy,” Milton said.

Nikola Two

The Nikola WAV (Water Adventure Vehicle) uses wakeboard architecture. The electric WAV has cruise control, LED lights and a 12-inch digital 4K display that is completely submersible, said Jordan Darling, vice presidentt of Nikola Powersports. “We’re disrupting how we run on the water,” Darling said. “We’re building the future of watersports.”

The NikolaTre is the European version of Nikola’s electric semi-truck, featuring a full factory theater system and two beds for the driver. The Tre will be available in both hydrogen-electric and battery electric versions. “We know Europe is going to be a huge market for us,” said Nikola President Mark Russell. The Tre will be compliant with Level 4 and Level 5 autonomy, and production is expected to begin in Europe around 2023, Milton said. Finally, the Nikola Two is the U.S. version of the autonomous, electric semi-truck, which is on track to begin production in 2022. The 800-volt truck will be available in both hydrogen-electric and battery electric, Milton said. The Nikola Two has larger windows than a typical semitruck, a 21-inch 4K display that controls everything on the truck for a full digital cockpit and a 12-inch infotainment system. “Other manufacturers said it was impossible to design,” Milton said about his vehicles. “I was lucky enough to have parents that taught me that anything was possible. All my experiences have prepared me for tonight.” By Hayley Ringle – Reporter, Phoenix Business Journal A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

Phoenix Region A Top Market For 2019 Industrial Development, Report Says The Phoenix region is on track to have 6.5 million square feet of industrial space constructed in 2019, the sixth-largest expected delivery of commercial real estate markets nationwide. According to a study by Commercial Café, the Valley has 34 developments of at least 90,000 square feet scheduled to come online this year. Most industrial development underway in the Valley is speculative, according to Rusty Kennedy, senior vice president at CBRE. Valleywide, the vacancy rate for industrial properties was at 6.6 percent at the end of 2018, the lowest year-end rate since 2005, according to CBRE, which set high expectations for industrial construction and absorption in 2019. Industrial developers and economic development leaders have touted theValley, particularly theWestValley, as an ideal location for industrial tenants due to its proximity and easy access to California and other Southwest markets. Southern California’s Inland Empire topped the list for the most active industrial development market, with 74 buildings totaling 19.7 million square feet scheduled to come online this year, according to the study. Chicago ranked second on the list, followed by Dallas-Fort Worth, New Jersey and South Carolina.

Tech giant makes another huge land buy in Goodyear Microsoft Corp. has paid $37 million for another 147 acres of land in Goodyear, according to real estate database Vizzda. It’s the second land acquisition by the technology giant in the West Valley city within the past 9 months. The new parcel, located north of Interstate 10, is vacant with no adjacent development. The tech giant bought the land from DRI FR GOODYEAR LLC. It is located in a planned area development called PV303 West III. In December, the city approved a preliminary plat on the site to allow four industrial lots. The latest parcel, located at Citrus and Indian School roads, is about 9 miles from another 279-acre high-profile site the tech giant bought in Goodyear for $48 million last summer.That location is at Maricopa County 85 and Lower Buckeye Road. Goodyear City Council has since approved an expedited development on the first site. Very few details have been given about what is planned for the parcel, which has only been referred to as a “technology center” in public discussion and documents. The city agreed to allow Microsoft to proceed with the development A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

Smart City Technology In 2019, Yuma will be the first city in the U.S. to fully deploy Smart City technology through a streetlight network designed by Siemens and anyCOMM. Smart City applications to-date suggest it’s a term that is defined in many ways. It has been suggested that in order for a city to be smart, data generated and collected through Internet of Things technology must be used. The City of Yuma had this discussion and made a major commitment to become a Smart City through a partnership with Siemens and anyCOMM, an Internet of Things company based in Sacramento County, California. In the case ofYuma, the Smart City concept begins with the city’s streetlights which are being upgraded to LED bulbs. Siemens built the light assembly for the streetlights and anyCOMM developed a node that plugs into the new light assembly.When combined and fully deployed, the system will deliver high speed broadband connectivity citywide with a myriad of applications or uses. In 2019, Yuma will be the first city in the U.S. to fully deploy Smart City technology through a streetlight network designed by Siemens and anyCOMM. The potential of this new technology for enhanced city service delivery, budget savings, improved public safety effectiveness, and economic development is endless.

Santa Clara, California-based Vantage Data Centers paid $12.76 million for a planned data center campus on a 49-acre Goodyear parcel. Dallas-based CyrusOne, which has a large data center facility in Chandler, bought 68.2 acres in Mesa in June for a planned fivebuilding data center facility. Apple Inc. finished construction last year of its $2 billion Arizona Data & Global Command Center in Mesa, giving the Phoenix Business Journal a peek inside. Denver-based EdgeCore Internet Real Estate LLC broke ground a year ago on its first $150 million data center in Mesa, with an anticipated $2 billion company and customer investment at full buildout. Iron Mountain Inc. began construction in July on a $430 million, three-story data center in east Phoenix originally planned by IO Data Centers.

Lucid Motors On Track For Spring Groundbreaking An electric vehicle manufacturer is on target for a spring groundbreaking for its proposed Casa Grande manufacturing plant, officials said. David Salguero, a spokesman for Lucid Motors, told PinalCentral the groundbreaking for Phase 1 is being planned. The 500-acre site on the southwest corner of Thornton and Peters roads has been secured by the California-based start-up company, Salguero said. Pinal County purchased the property through bonds that the company will repay over the next several years. Salguero said Lucid plans to construct 20,000 Lucid Air vehicles, all-electric luxury sedans, at the plant. Production will begin in 2020, he added. The final phase of the project is expected to be complete by the mid-2020s. The total capital investment across all phases is $700 million, Salguero said. In November 2016, Lucid Motors announced its intent to build the plant in Casa Grande. Officials have said the plant will employ up to 2,000 people in various jobs. Central Arizona College currently offers an advanced manufacturing class to help prepare employees for the plant. In September, the company announced a $1 billion investment from the Saudi Public Investment Fund. By Heather Smathers A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

Experience, Persistence, Hard Work and Innovation Coupled With New Haas Machine Tools All Contribute To AxisWorks’ Double Digit Growth

RPM department was staffed with a small team of machinists and 9 machines, including 5 vertical mills, a CNC router and 3 CNC lathes.” In 2014, Eric felt it was time to go out on his own, and he started a consulting firm called Insight Tactics Consultants. “I saw a need for someone who knew all aspects of designing a part from concept to reality, with both machining and programming experience, to help small or start up shops.” At the time, Eric was an active hobbyist in long range shooting, and through relationships, he was asked by a manufacturer in Wyoming to come help get the owner’s manufacturing CNC shop up and running. Eric says, “I didn’t want to be an employee – it was why I left my previous employer, so we negotiated a consulting contract, and I moved there to help his business get up and running for a year.”

“I’ve always wanted to own my own machine shop. In my senior year, I had a really great English teacher, and she asked us to write a letter about what we wanted to do in life. She would mail these letters to our parents 3 years after we graduated from high school”, says AxisWorks owner Eric Goss. Eric’s letter said he wanted to own his own machine shop. Eric grew up in Indiana, and both he and is brother are 5th generation machinists. 13 years ago, in 2006, Eric and his wife made the decision to move to Arizona when Eric’s wife was accepted into dental school. Eric was hired quickly by a successful machine shop, Foresight Technologies, where he spent nearly a decade. “I thank the management team there; they helped me to grow and learn. After years as a machinist, they allowed me to start up their ‘Rapid Prototype Division’ (RPM), where we would help our customers take a product from a concept (print) to product in 2 days.When we launched the new department, our new RPM was equipped with one employee (me) and 2 machines – a mill and a lathe. At the time, I didn’t have experience with CAM programs. They sent me school to learn, and through this process, I became an experienced programmer.” He added, “This new service we offered our customers was so well received that we couldn’t keep up with the volume.We continued to add new machines and people, and by the time I left, I was the ‘RPM Coordinator’ and our A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

After finishing his 1-year consulting assignment in Wyoming, Eric launched AxisWorks.The new company had one customer, and with some savings Eric had accumulated over the past years working, he purchased 2 brand new Haas machines, a Haas VF-4SS highperformance Super-Speed vertical machining center and a Haas ST25 (a small-footprint, big-bore lathe that provides a generous work envelope). “I know a lot of new machine shop owners start with used machines, but I knew that if I was to be competitive, I would need the latest in technology. The new Haas machines would allow me to machine quicker than I could otherwise do with older machines.” Eric had gained experience in the Haas machine tool line while in his consulting role inWyoming. “For the money, there is no machine that beats the Haas.” He added, “The control on the Haas machine tool line is the easiest, most intuitive control out there. It’s ridiculous!” Eric says that he is machining some difficult to machine alloys on the Haas machines, including Hastelloy and Inconel. “ I am really impressed with how the Haas machines hold tight tolerances - I have utilized Haas CNC Milling Circular Interpolation Programming for some of our parts and held tolerances of .0002 using 2 axes”, he added. One can simply not imagine what it takes to launch a new machine shop. Though Eric is a 5th generation machinist, he admits that machining alone does not make a successful shop. “I had to learn business overnight, and there were too many nights to count where I slept on a cot in the shop.” Today, Eric is losing less sleep at AxisWorks. “We’ve established a good set of customers, about 40, and no one customer drives more than 10% of our revenues.” He added, “I learned that manufacturing rifles is a good fit for us, and we’ve added staff who are experienced

in machining firearms.” Tim LaBoarde, pictured next to the Haas TL-1 Tool Room Lathe, recently joined the company with his move to Arizona from Wyoming. Eric was actually first trained on the Haas machines by Tim LaBoarde. Tim says, “In my opinion Haas makes one of the best machines in the world — and the very best for the money.” He adds, “I love that they are made in the USA. The value is incredible and the tolerances they hold are amazing.” Today, AxisWorks carries a ‘07 Federal Firearms License (FFL). They build custom precision bolt-action rifles to their customers’ specification and they are a certified Cerakote provider. Tim says that the Haas TL-1 Tool Room Lathe is a superior machine for the company’s gun barrel work.

job. In particular, Trace Jacobs (Kyocera) has done an outstanding job helping me to maximize the machine’s capabilities with the right tooling. Between our Haas machine tools, the support we’re getting from our vendors and my ‘on the job business school training’, we’re on track to double our revenues this year.”

AxisWorks owns 4 Haas machines today, and all are 2015 and newer. Eric says, “Buying new machines is the only way I have been able to stay competitive. Since I added the 2nd Haas VF-4SS, we’ve produced more parts than I have ever run through the shop.”

Doctors 3D Printing Hearts To Help Them Prepare For Surgery 3D printing continues to make advances with its technology. Now, it is helping doctors at Cardon Children’s Medical Center be even more prepared, as they head to the operating room.


Check Out Our New State-of-the-Art Facility!

CT technologistTravis Mucha is working on a 3D print of a patient’s heart at the Cardon Children’s Medical Center. It all starts with a CT scan. The information is then sent to the printer, and after a few more steps, the process is complete, with a model of the patient’s heart being ready to be viewed by doctors. The life-size model shows the exact structure and any type of defect. Doctors can then perform a virtual surgery before the actual treatment. “You can hold the heart in your hand and also examine every structure in detail, and also plan the surgery really well,” said Dr. Prasad. Dr. Prasad says the prints help doctors manage problems that may arise. She says the technology cuts down on time spent in the OR, and improves patient outcome. The printer can create a heart from start to finish in less than a day.The doctor says this type of printing also makes it easier for parents to understand exactly what’s wrong with their child’s heart.

Taking The Next Step With AS9100 Certification With The Help Of BMSC Marsh Aviation isn’t your typical manufacturing company. They d o n ’t m a k e thousands of components – or even hundreds. In fact, with their latest customer win, Marsh Aviation is building a quantity of four, and it will take 6 years to complete the project! Their customer is a U.S. allied military, and they are revitalizing four retired U.S. military aircraft, basically stripping them down, and rebuilding/modernizing them with all new components. Unlike new aircraft manufacturers, Marsh conversions do away with the extensive development costs of a new airframe and offer customers an exceptional upgraded product at a very cost-effective price. Chuck Stanford, Jr., President and CEO of the company, says, “Typically our customers can expect to pay a fraction of the price of a new aircraft.” Marsh Aviation opened for business more than a half century ago, in the 1960s, operating a fleet of aircraft for crop dusting. While busily focused on crop dusting, the company was by necessity doing its own aircraft maintenance and upgrades. The rest is history! Today Marsh Aviation offers their customers several options: • A completely rebuilt aircraft • New components for a rebuilt aircraft, kitted for their customer who does the final assembly •‘One off’ aircraft components or tooling replacing aircraft parts that are either nonfunctional or are just being rebuilt with modern capabilities The company operates in its 18,000 square foot production, hangar, and office facility on nearly four acres with flight line access at the Falcon Field airport in Mesa. The building is fully equipped for welding, electrical, engine maintenance, pneudraulics, and a full machine shop with multiaxis CNC machining capabilities. Marsh’s projects span the globe. Some have included: • Marsh/Grumman C-1/S-2T – Various configurations of the “Turbo Tracker”, including modification, upgrades/kits, and ongoing engineering/ parts support including 24 Marsh S-2F3AT air tankers for CAL FIRE • Lockheed C-130 – Installation of a removable Marsh Constant-flow Aerial Retardant Delivery System (CARDS) and follow-on modification for oil dispersant and/or spray operations • Marsh/North American OV-10A+/D/G “Bronco” and “Super Bronco” A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

Chuck says, “We were looking at NADCAP, ISO 9001, AS9100 and FAA. In the end, it was a potential customer who required AS9100 certification that drove our decision.” He continued, “And we had less than 2 months to complete it.” Chuck and other key management team members Stan Shaw, Brandon Lammers and Benno Kuipers contacted a number of peers in the industry for recommendations on AS9100 consultants. Chuck says, “Bretta Kelly, owner of BMSC, came up over and over again. Anyone you talked to, in fact, recommended BMSC.” Stan says, “Bretta and her colleague Debbie Hart first came to our company to begin the AS9100 process in early February. On March 29th, we received our email confirming that we had successfully certified. It was nothing short of a whirlwind 41 days.” Chuck says, “Bretta and Debbie were a treat to work with, and they made the whole process bearable.” He continued, “From our company, Brandon and Stan were the key drivers, though the entire company participated.” Stan says, “It is easy to overcomplicate your processes as you prepare for AS9100 certification. Bretta’s templates and years of experience in helping companies to achieve certification are built around simplification.” Brandon adds, “We couldn’t have achieved AS9100 certification in 41 days without the help of Bretta and Debbie.” Marsh Aviation is a small, specialized aircraft manufacturer. “Everybody wears many hats”, Chuck says, “And we think this makes our company very special. At Marsh Aviation, we are always looking for superior A&P mechanics, machinists, and engineers to join our team.” To learn more about how Marsh Aviation, an AS9100 Rev. D certified company, can help you with your aircraft projects, contact them at 480.832.3770 or visit MarshAviation.com To learn more about how BMSC can help you to achieve ISO and/or AS9100 certification, contact Bretta Kelly at 602.445.9400 or visit BusinessMSC.com

Kirtland Air Force Base andWhite Sands Missile Range are playing critical roles in the modernization efforts, thanks to their technical talent and established infrastructure.

On the space front, that means upgrading government satellite systems to manage modern day challenges and make space-based communications, monitoring, and control systems far more efficient and robust.

On the directed energy front, the military is working to move laser and microwave weapons out of the lab and into the field, with a lot more money going into prototypes for testing, evaluation and training of war fighters. Most of that work is centered in New Mexico because those weapons were largely developed here through the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Directed Energy Directorate, creating a rich pool of talent and technical expertise. White Sands, meanwhile, is emerging as the nation’s key test and evaluation site for those weapons. The fiscal year 2019 National Defense Authorization Act provided money to upgrade military infrastructure and capabilities here and advance technology modernization programs.That includes: • $371 million for the Air Force’s Space Rapid Capabilities Office at Kirtland, nearly a threefold increase from FY 2018; • $15 million to upgrade White Sands’ laser and microwave testing infrastructure; and • $484 million for directed energy activities nationally, most of it for Air Force efforts, particularly in New Mexico, to advance laser and microwave systems. More defense spending means more military and civilian jobs at Kirtland, and more contracts for local companies.Just since February, the government announced two new awards for homegrown Albuquerque firms. Tau Technologies won an $8.9 million contract for modeling, simulation and assessment work on laser systems, and LoadPath LLC won $14.9 million to assist in research and development of advanced components and systems for satellites. Such homegrown firms are growing fast. Verus Research, for example, grew from 21 employees and $2.7 million in revenue in 2014 to 74 employees and $12 million in revenue last year. The company works on lasers, high-power microwaves and nuclear engineering. Big companies are also staffing up to manage new and ongoing space and directed energy-related contracts.In January, Northrop Grumman said it would open a new Albuquerque-area facility and expand its workforce, potentially doubling its employees to 300 over the next three years.

Boeing, which manages all of its directed energy work in Albuquerque, has developed a ground-based compact laser weapon system for defense against drones. It sold its first ones last year to the Marine Corps for testing and training.The company, which employs about 200 throughout New Mexico, hired 20 people last year and will hire 20 more this year. Raytheon as well has ramped up at the Sandia Science and Technology Park to better manage its microwave-related work, nearly doubling its facility there to 175,000-square-feet. The site employs 150 people and includes the largest single concentration of microwave-related scientists and engineers among all companies nationwide, said Don Sullivan, directed energy chief technologist for Raytheon in Albuquerque. Raytheon has built a ground-based microwave defense system to down swarms of incoming drones simultaneously, which it tested at White Sands last fall. If the military deploys the system, most high-tech manufacturing and development will remain in Albuquerque with final assembly elsewhere. That means more jobs at Raytheon and at local high-tech firms that supply components and services to the company, Sullivan said. A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

ON Semiconductor Looks To Acquire San Jose Wi-Fi Tech Company ON Semiconductor Corp. has inked an agreement to acquire a San Jose, California-based public Wi-Fi tech company for $1 billion in cash. The Phoenix-based semiconductor manufacturer ON is acquiring Quantenna Communications Inc., a company that claims it has the world’s fastest Wi-Fi. The acquisition will bolster ON Semiconductor’s connectivity portfolio with the addition of Quantenna’s Wi-Fi technology and software capabilities, said Keith Jackson, ON’s president and CEO. “The acquisition of Quantenna is another step towards strengthening our presence in industrial and automotive markets,” Jackson said in a statement. “The combination of ON’s expertise in highly efficient power management and broad sales and distribution reach, and Quantenna’s industry leading Wi-Fi technologies and software expertise, creates a formidable platform for addressing fast-growing markets for low-power connectivity in industrial and automotive applications.”

Labor Department Issues Proposed Regulations on Overtime The Labor Department has issued its long-awaited proposed regulations on overtime. The proposal would raise the pay threshold at which workers would be exempt from overtime to $35,308 from the current $23,660.

Sam Heidari, chairman and CEO of Quantenna, says the acquisition is great news for As of the end of last year, Quantenna had 415 employees, up from 380 a year earlier. It turned a profit of about $3 million in 2018 on $220.5 million in revenue.

The proposed rules, which the department says would make more than 1 million workers eligible for overtime, are most likely to affect workers with jobs like shift supervisor or assistant manager at restaurants, retailers and manufacturing companies. While they affect workers at companies of all sizes, small businesses that have less of a revenue cushion are likely to more keenly feel the impact of higher overtime costs than larger businesses would.

ON expects the deal to close in the second quarter, subject to regulatory approval and

administration that would have doubled the pay threshold at which workers would be exempt from overtime to $47,476. The Trump administration proposal is about halfway between the current threshold, which has been in effect since 2004, and the Obama administration rules, which would have affected an estimated 4.2 million people. The final regulations are likely to be similar to the proposal, but there may be changes made in response to the comments, says Marty Heller, a labor law attorney with Fisher Phillips in Atlanta. Small business owners have expected since Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta took office that there would be an increase in the threshold, although they “generally do not like it when the federal government intervenes on wage issues,” says Karen Kerrigan, president of the advocacy group Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council. But the rules included a provision that owners would be happy with, providing for increases in the exemption threshold every four years via the rule-making process rather than automatic increases in the Obama plan, Kerrigan says. Business owners who don’t want to pay additional overtime have said they were exploring options including giving affected staffers raises to put them into the category of exempt employees. Owners also said they might li Such strategies are legal, but owners should think about the impact they could have on morale, Heller says.“The current job market is demanding that employers not just comply with law but make decisions to be competitive with one another,” he says. by Joyce M.

Brandon Clausen, Journeyman Machinist, was hired by the company as Quality Assurance Manager. Brandon says, “We have had plans to certify for the past couple of years. Last year, we started the process of certifying to AS9110 with another consulting group, and it was ‘unpleasant’, to say the least.” He continued, “We let it go, and then hired a consulting group out of Florida that came highly recommended. Before we even got started with them, we were invited to bid on a very large contract for the US Air Force. The problem was that in order to even bid, you had to be ISO 9001 certified.” Brandon and his team contacted their new consultant in Florida. Unfortunately, the group in Florida was not able to support IARTechnical Services’ requirement to complete certification in 40 days. Brandon says, “One of our colleagues in Arizona recommended Bretta Kelly, owner of consulting firm BMSC.” We contacted her, told her, at this point, we had less than 40 days to certify, and she confirmed she could help us to achieve this.” Thanks to Bretta Kelly and her colleague Debbie Hart, IAR Technical Services met their deadline for both ISO and AS9110 certification, and they were able to qualify for bidding on the US Air Force contract. Brandon says, “BMSC was outstanding – they went so above and beyond for us. Bretta and Debbie rearranged their schedules to meet our time frame, and they worked weekends and late into the evening to support us.” “I would absolutely recommend BMSC”, Brandon relayed, “and I can tell you that you won’t find someone as passionate about helping a company get certified as Bretta Kelly. BMSC is outstanding.” “We are extremely proud of our team and their efforts to attain the ISO 9001:2015 and AS9110 Certification” says Bill Grantham, President of IAR Technical Services. “It means that quality is not just a concept, but a reality. Our policies and procedures document that, but our people show it in how they work – and particularly in how they engage with our customers. The certification reflects our on going commitment to quality and our commitment to our customers.” To learn more about IARTechnical Services, an IS9001: 2015 and AS9110 certified company, contact them at 480-840-9860 or email: contact@ iartechservices.com To learn more about how BMSC can help you to achieve ISO and/or AS9100/9110 certification, contact Bretta Kelly at 602.445.9400 or visit BusinessMSC.com

Raytheon Missile Systems In Tucson Wins $204M In Military Contracts Tucson’s Raytheon Missile Systems recently was awarded close to $204 million in U.S. military contracts for three long-standing missile programs.


We purchase all types of ferrousTheand metals. threenon-ferrous contracts include scrap continuing work on the

Evolved SeaSparrow Missile for the Navy, the Rolling Airframe Missile for the Navy and Standard Missile-3 for the Missile Defense Agency.

Raytheon recently invested $500 million to add 600,000 square feet of commercial space in Tucson, and is in the process of adding another 2,000 employees to the 12,000 statewide, said Gerard Hueber, Raytheon Missile System’s vice president of business development for strategic and naval systems. “We do business with more than 500 suppliers around the state,” Hueber said. “As the largest private employer in southern Arizona our business is expanding and continues to grow.” The largest of the three new contracts is a $98 million contract for the long-standing international program for the 2019 SeaSparrow Missile Block 2.The first missile in this program was deployed in 2004, according to Raytheon.This missile program is the oldest international program inside NATO, in existence for over 50 years, Hueber said. “It is a consortium of partners that we work with to develop that missile,” Hueber said. “We are transitioning from a legacy capability to Block 2.This is a major milestone inside of a program where you transition from A2Z MANUFACTURING SW •

The second-largest new contract is worth $92 million for the Rolling Airframe Missile Block 2 guided missile round pack and spare replacement components. This is an international co-operative program between the U.S. and the Federal Republic of Germany and is the second version of the missile, Hueber said. “This surface-to-air missile is for short-range defenses for the Navy,” he said. “The transition has an upgraded capability with improved maneuverability over the first version.” This missile was initially deployed in 1993 with the Block 1 variant, and the Block 2 variant was deployed in May 2015. RAM is a missile system designed to provide anti-ship missile defense for multiple ship platforms. The RAM missile is deployed in 11 countries on more than 165 Navy ships, ranging from 95,000 ton aircraft carriers to 500 ton fast attack craft, according to Raytheon. About 35 percent of the work on this missile will be done in Tucson, with 44 percent in Ottobrunn, Germany and the rest in Scotland and other cities in the U.S. The work is expected to be completed by November 2021. The third contract is worth $14 million to provide continued production support and engineering for the Standard Missile SM-3 Block IB program. By Hayley Ringle – Reporter, Phoenix Business Journal

High End Technology Available for Citizen Machines

The second factor in the innovation ranking is an abundance of innovation at the state’s universities. For the Phoenix area, that means tying in with Arizona State University, which has been named the country’s most innovative university by U.S. News & World Report. Combine those with the state’s businessfriendly environment and the development of a large workforce and it is not a question of why Phoenix is on the list, Hickey said.

www.marucit.com Phoenix Snares High Global Innovation Rank From Site Selection Study The Phoenix area has cracked a list of the top global innovative cities, according to a first-time report from a firm that helps businesses with site selection. Hickey & Associates’ debut Global Innovations Hubs report put Phoenix at No. 58 globally and No. 20 in the Americas, largely on the strength of its medical science industries and research.David Hickey, managing director at the NewYork-based Hickey & Associates, said Phoenix is gaining a reputation as an innovation hub among industry leaders.

Overall, the top four innovation markets globally are in the U.S.. Ranked, in order, they include Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. Bejing rounded out the top five.

Truck Manufacturer Buys Site For Arizona Factory That Will Employ 2,000 Workers Phoenix-based Nikola Motor Co. announced the purchase of roughly 400 acres of raw land in Coolidge from Saint Holdings, without citing a price. Nikola plans to build hydrogen-electric trucks at the facility. Nikola is a privately owned company that currently employs about 80 people at an office near Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix. It designs and manufactures hydrogen-electric vehicles, electric-vehicle drivetrains, components, energy-storage systems and hydrogen stations. Nikola claims to have 13,000 orders for what it calls the nation’s most advanced semi trucks.

Hickey highlighted two factors that helped to land theValley on the list.The first is medical sciences, which has become one of the growing sectors of the local economy after nearly two decades of investment by local groups.

The factory will ramp up to around 2,000 jobs by 2024. Nikola’s presence in the area could bring thousands of additional jobs at suppliers and related businesses, said Trevor Milton, Nikola’s CEO.

According to the Flinn Foundation’s biennial Bioscience Roadmap released in 2018, which charts the industry’s progress, the industry has 25,686 non hospital jobs and 116,433 total health care workers in the Valley. It also has been an economic powerhouse with $189 million in National Institutes of Health

The investment will be a “huge benefit to Coolidge and the surrounding areas for decades to come,” he predicted.

Dreaming of lights-out machining? Do it right with a Linear Pallet System from Doosan. Picture it. You program your horizontal machining center on Friday. You turn out the lights, lock up the shop and have yourself a great weekend. You return Monday morning with pallets upon pallets of precise, ready-to-ship parts. That’s what you get with a Linear Pallet System from Doosan. A single LPS allows for up to 99 pallets and supplies up to 7 Doosan horizontal machining centers. Want to know more? Talk to your local Doosan distributor and get ready to fire a couple acronyms at them: “I want an LPS for my HMC.” Learn more at DOOSANMACHINETOOLS.COM
