  • 3. 3 Mission Statement Through the dedication and continuous reassessment of our processes and procedures we will endeavor to provide the best service with the highest degree integrity. It is the mission of NAA to offer our customers and end users quality tooling and parts with the best service and response time in the industry. Executive Summary North American Aviation, Inc. (NAA) is a privately owned composite tooling and part fabrication facility located in Wichita Kansas. Upon the inception of NAA in 1992 growth was based on composite tool fabrication. The rapid growth NAA has seen over the past several years has been due to the addition of composite production part / assembly fabrication. Although cyclical in nature, the highs and lows of the tooling business have been mitigated by production fabrication. The owners have done a remarkable job growing the business from the small shop it was founded as 22 years ago to what it is today. With our continued growth, we have acquired like-minded, growth-oriented individuals who share a common vision of what the company can be. With a diversified product line and expanding customer base that includes major airframe OEMs, interior completion centers, and major OEM suppliers, managed properly, NAA will continue to grow and gain more market share.
  • 4. 4 Business of the Company Origin and Facility North American Aviation, Inc. (NAA) began 22 years as North American Tool Company (NATCO). Formed by Rod Gerlach and Dan Robertson, NATCO fabricated composite tooling for Boeing, Lear Jet, Cessna, Beechcraft, and most of the current composite interior shops located in Wichita. Nearly 10 years ago, NATCO purchased its current building, formerly occupied by a composite fabrication company, and changed its name to North American Aviation, Inc. At that time, NAA continued to fabricate quality composite tooling and expanded into composite part production. Located on 15 acres of land north of Wichita Kansas, NAA occupies 2 buildings totaling approximately 33,000 ft2 used for tooling and part fabrication. The Production (main) building houses offices, a conference room, and composite part production. The Tooling building, completed in August 2007, houses the Tooling and CNC departments.

  • 5. 5 Mission and Goals The mission of North American Aviation Inc. is to offer our customers and end users the broadest possible variety of composite tooling and parts with the best service and response time in the industry. In an ever increasingly competitive business with increasingly tighter cost and schedule constraints, NAA has taken great strides to improve overall performance and value to the customers. Keys to NAA Success NAA owes much of its success to the extremely dedicated workforce it employs. Our workforce displays a can do attitude and are incredibly dedicated to the company. Another key to NAA’s success has been its ability to ‘perform miracles’ as our customer Cessna was quoted as saying of us. NAA has an outstanding track record for doing what would be considered by others to be impossible given schedule constraints, difficult requirements, and our customer’s expectation of a high degree of quality at a reasonable price. The Cessna mock-ups are prime examples of NAA’s ability to deliver a high quality product in an incredibly short period of time. Existing Business / Current Customers NAA fabricates various types of composite tooling and parts and provides CNC machining and trimming for a wide range of customers several of which are listed in the table below. Company Cessna Aircraft Company Dassault Falcon Jet Gulfstream UTC Aerospace Hawker Beechcraft Associated Air Center Hiller, Inc. BE Aerospace There are several other companies for which NAA does business but the amount of work done for them is minimal compared to the work done for the companies listed in the table above. Among the more interesting and challenging projects are carbon fiber “kick out panels” for, NHRA top fuel dragster teams and a set of showers for (2) GE Global Express XRS’ completed at MidCoast Aviation (St. Louis).

NAA purchased two new 5-axis routers within a year of completing the new tooling building which have greatly increased our machining capacity. A 3-axis router has recently been refurbished and updated with the same brand of controller used on the other 5-axis routers.

All products produced by NAA are digitally compared to the original engineering configuration for accuracy per customer defined tolerances. Experience NAA has extensive experience in the manufacture of composite and aluminum tooling. Since the company’s beginning, NAA has been providing tooling for aircraft OEM’s that include Beechcraft, Cessna, Falcon Jet, and Boeing. In addition to this, the composite parts/panels that NAA fabricates are built on various types of tooling depending upon several factors including but not limited to part run/volume, program type (prototype/production), and program lead time. Our employees and management staff are very talented and are experienced having working at Boeing, McDonnell Douglas, Cessna, Beechcraft, Learjet, Senior Composites, Precision Pattern Inc., Nordam, PCI NewCo, P-Fab, among others. NAA has a competitive advantage in being able to provide quality products with excellent customer service. Since we are a local, privately owned company, we only have to answer to our customers and are able to provide lower cost solutions while at the same time providing the highest degree of workmanship and quality. In addition to this, NAA is not tied to just one major customer like many of our competitors and therefore we are able to give our customers the attention they deserve. As our Quality Policy states, North American Aviation, Inc. will endeavor to provide products and services that meet or exceed the requirements and expectations of our customers.
