On 19 April 2017 three experienced Aerospace Leaders (Jason Adkins, Jim Bird, and Thomas Scott) gathered to discuss the challenges manufacturers face on the Colorado Front Range.
By the end of April we had organized under 3rd Frontier and debuted the new company at NOCOM.
We spent the first few months understanding how to align what we love to do "improve company performance" with what the market wants us to do.
3rd Frontier is becoming the "go-to" team for working "in your facility and with your team" to execute improvements in operations, profitability, and culture.
