SEATTLE, Washington (October 1, 2014) – Yesterday, GMN Aerospace supplier, Asko Processing, experienced a fire that destroyed part of their warehouse in Seattle, Washington. The Asko offices and production areas were not affected. While GMN relies on Asko for a variety of capabilities, we anticipate minimal impact to GM Nameplate’s manufacturing or on-time delivery as a result of the event. GMN Aerospace has an established action plan to mitigate supply chain disruptions. This includes developing long-lasting relationships with multiple, approved and audited suppliers. GMN has already contacted customer approved secondary suppliers to secure the necessary capabilities to fulfill orders. Most customers will experience no impact to on-time delivery.
