  • Thomas Receives Small Business Award from Lockheed Martin
  • 04.15.2017
  • Thomas Instrument has been extremely responsive in all communications with Lockheed Martin Missile and Fire Control.  When asked to provide a proposal for the next Joint-Air-to-Surface Missile (JASSM) lot production effort, they responded ahead of schedule.  Their proposal data is always concise, clear and to the point. During negotiations for the current JASSM Lot 13 and Lot 14 production, the Subcontract Manager provided TI with the program’s goals to support cost challenges.  Thomas reviewed all areas for opportunities and they were able to successfully find cost savings.  In addition, they agreed to store the completed hardware in-house at no additional charge to the program, thus saving the JASSM program potential storage fees.  TI has also agreed to support a long-term pricing agreement to help support JASSM program goals for Lots 15 - 17.  Thank you for your excellent support to Missle and Fire Control.  Marc Bigot, Subcontract Mgr
