MS 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.
MS Aerospace soon gained a formidable reputation as a manufacturer capable of consistently producing world-class aerospace fasteners in impressive lead times, with the integrity and documentation required by an increasingly demanding marketplace.
In January 1994, the original MS Aerospace facility in Sylmar, California was destroyed as a result of the Northridge, California earthquake. Although a profound blow to the start up company, MS 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, MS Aerospace has secured one of the world’s largest and most respected OEM’s approvals with a 100% quality rating.
The growth of the Company continued through 1995 and 1996, most significantly attributable to providing the world’s largest OEMs with impeccable quality jet engine fasteners in very short lead times.
Not surprisingly, MS 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 MS 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 ISO9001:2008 and AS9100:2009 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, MS 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.
MS 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, MS 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 MS 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.
