3 Reasons to be Thankful at Thanksgiving

Posted by Clare McGarrey on Nov 16, 2015 5:00:00 PM

 

Well it’s that time of year again to reflect on the past year and what we are thankful for. I am excited about the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday and everything that it holds. Yes, it will mean hosting a huge turkey dinner at my house (thank God my husband is the cook!) but it will also mean going around the table telling the family what you are most thankful for. That is my all-time favorite thing at Thanksgiving – everyone sharing why they are thankful this year. So, since this is on my mind, I thought I would share some of the things that InterConnect Wiring is thankful for.

Four Benefits of Aerospace OEM Licensee Agreements

Posted by John Ashour on Oct 15, 2015 3:14:45 PM

 

Large aerospace Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) such as: Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Airbus, Sikorsky, Bell Helicopter, BAE, L3, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, Honeywell, Pratt and Whitney, General Electric, Augusta Westland, Rolls Royce, Safran, Embraer, Finmeccanica, Bombardier, Thales, Spirit, Zodiac, Rockwell Collins, and Dassault establish license agreements for numerous reasons. For the remainder of this blog these companies will be called the “Prime” since they are the primary company that designs and assembles their products. InterConnect Wiring has two license agreements with the Primes; one is with Lockheed Martin and a second one with Sikorsky Aircraft. Both license agreements are similar in many respects. Both agreements establish InterConnect as the Licensee for electrical products such as wiring harnesses, cockpit panels, relay panels, and circuit breaker panels. Both agreements allow InterConnect to access the respective Prime’s technical data and specifications, configuration control information, and tooling. InterConnect’s License Agreement with Lockheed Martin is for the F-16 fleet worldwide. InterConnect’s License Agreement with Sikorsky is actually called a Technical Support Services Agreement (TSSA) and it is for all Sikorsky aircraft (military and commercial) worldwide. License agreements benefit many companies and governments throughout the world. Four of the primary establishments that benefit are: (1) users who fly the aircraft, (2) the Primes, (3) logistics companies, and (4) the Licensee.

 How many times have you driven by a place and wondered… I wonder…. What do they do in that building??? I do it all the time. I know everyone is different, but we are human beings and we are all curious. Remember the ancient proverb “Curiosity killed the cat”? Of course we all do. It was used to warn of the dangers of unnecessary investigation or experimentation.
