OEMs and Tier 1 companies evaluate their supply chains for best quality, delivery, and value, while suppliers seek the opportunity to further serve the aerospace industry. The Aerospace B2B Matchmaker is an industry focused “speed-dating” event between procurement representatives and potential manufacturing suppliers.

OEM and Tier 1 participants have included such companies as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Curtis-Wright, GKN, Wyman Gordon and Champion Aerospace.

OEM and Tier 1 companies have expressed a desire to be able to pre-select suppliers of interest. Pre-application will be required and suppliers will be selected based on their products and services. If there are time slots remaining, all companies which have been pre-approved will be able to register for remaining slots online, on a first-come-first-served basis.

This event is open to all suppliers, however, South Carolina operations will receive priority scheduling.
