Ms. Valerie Muck, Air Force Director of Small Business Programs and Mr. David Sikora, Air Force Mentor Protégé Program Manager, attended the Lockheed Martin / Marvin Engineering Mentor Protégé Program kickoff meeting in Inglewood, CA on 1 Jun 2017.
Marvin Engineering is a small business that manufactures aviation components for military aircraft, to include the F-35. Under a Mentor Protégé Program agreement, Lockheed Martin will mentor Marvin Engineering and provide technology and knowledge transfer to establish a robotic spray coating system for Marvin Engineering.
The system will promote full rate production with reduced costs and lead time for aircraft part production. Congresswoman Maxine Waters (43rd Congressional District) and Inglewood Mayor Mr. James T. Butts, Jr. were among the distinguished guests in attendance.
Following the ceremony, guests were given a tour of the Marvin facility.
