Lockheed Martin Presents Baker Industries with Outstanding Small Business Award

MACOMB, Mich., June 18, 2019 – Baker Industries today announced that it had recently been awarded Lockheed Martin’s Outstanding Small Business Award.

Raymond Rampi, Supply Chain Director of Tactical & Strike Missiles, nominated Baker Industries for this award, saying, “Baker Industries has provided a long-term solution to reducing long lead times for highly complex machined parts at an affordable price. They started working to model files and prioritizing parts under a developmental Time & Materials contract to mitigate schedule risk, order material, and machine programming features while final engineering was completed. Their ability to react and respond quickly to engineering changes has assisted greatly in meeting specific schedule milestones, which has enabled the program to build test vehicles . . . Since the start of our partnership, Baker Industries has proven to be a valuable member of the Lockheed Martin supply chain and has taken on difficult challenges to support Lockheed Martin. Their machines run over the weekend, and they have given us advanced notice of when machine capacity is available to help prioritize our most critically needed parts over others. Baker Industries continues to support status calls and communicates with us daily on pressing items. They continue to fight tough battles each day to deliver quality hardware on time while complying with all the contractual requirements to make sure they are employing the latest engineering.”

“We sincerely appreciate the kind words from Mr. Raymond Rampi and are very proud of the relationship we’ve built with Lockheed Martin. We’re going to continue to work hard at providing cutting-edge machining and technology that will allow this partnership to reach the next level,” said Rachel Burke, Baker’s director of marketing.
