Veterans at Acutec
Many of the attributes that make an individual successful in their military service directly transfer to the aerospace manufacturing environment; judgement, dependability, decisiveness, enthusiasm, and initiative to name a few. I take great pride in knowing that the work I do at Acutec continues to support the troops through the manufacturing of defense components.
- Lucas Warner, Team Leader of Acutec’s ENF Cell
