Leatherneck Publishing's Iraq and Vietnam Conflict Books Honored by the San Diego Library
"Street Fight in Iraq" is one of the most compelling chronicles of the Iraqi conflict and is a best seller in Marine Corps Association bookstores. The language is harsh, the writing brutally honest and the message clear. It's down and dirty and Marines love this book. "An Angel Rode My Wing" has all the elements of any great action novel -- from being shot down over North Vietnam and miraculously surviving, similar to a James Bond adventure, to mysterious and mystical occurrences in life.

South Windsor, CT (PRWEB) November 16, 2006 -- The Aerospace Components Manufacturers Association of Connecticut (ACM) has announced the election of Kirk Smallidge to its Board of Directors. He has been involved with the ACM for many years in various capacities and has been a proponent of improvement in the metal industry. Kirk is employed with Aerodyne Alloys in South Windsor, CT., a leading supplier and processor of high temp specialty alloys including: Nickel, Cobalt, Titanium, Stainless, Hastelloy® and Inconel ® 718/625.

As Product Manager with Aerodyne Alloys, Mr. Smallidge gains tremendous knowledge from interaction with many metals companies of all sizes and industry categories. Al Samuel, Executive Director of ACM announced the election at a recent committee meeting. The Board elects new members by vote, as openings and needs present themselves. After careful deliberations Mr. Smallidge was unanimously voted in. "I and others on the Board have worked with Kirk for some time so he is a proven member and contributor to our mission. He has co-chaired many events and meetings in the organization over the years. As Director, I truly appreciate his dedication, interest and willingness to support ACM and bring fresh insights in as well," commented Mr. Samuel.

Mr. Smallidge will be an active participant on all four ACM Teams: Business Development, Workforce Development, Purchasing Group and LEAN Production. ACM is a network of independent Connecticut-based aerospace companies; a non-profit partnership. Working together as a network, member companies collectively offer broader capabilities than they could as individuals. ACM helps capture new business opportunities for Connecticut's aerospace industry.

"ACM will definitely benefit from Kirk's experience in the industry. He brings expertise from the alloys industry, thoughts on trends, and price issues. Overall, Kirk will add to each of the areas he becomes involved in because he is committed to help ACM members improve their businesses," added Greg Chase, President of Aerodyne Alloys, a leading international supplier and processor of specialty high temp alloys.

"It's vitally important to continue developing our industry. ACM member companies are united by a single goal: to lead in providing customers with aerospace components with not only the highest quality, competitive prices and delivery but to actually bring practical solutions to the table. ACM's aggressive workforce training initiatives ensure that employees constantly improve their skills and develop expertise in new technologies. These are a few of the reasons I am so excited about being a part of this Board," said Mr. Smallidge.

For generations, leading aerospace components manufacturers have been concentrated in the State of Connecticut. Today, this region of America, Aerospace Alley, has third and fourth generation aerospace machinists and toolmakers. Employees at ACM member companies have skill levels that simply can not be matched in any other region of the globe. The comprehensive capabilities of ACM's world-class manufacturers -- as well as specialty support services -- are located in a single region. No other area of the world has a comparable concentration of aerospace talent and capabilities.

ACM provides:
?The most cost effective manufacturing - meeting the requirements of the worldwide aerospace industry with products and services of unsurpassed quality.
?Fast turnaround times - always meeting customer delivery requirements.
?Multi-company teaming - providing added value and enhanced procurement and logistics savings for the customer.
?Customer's savings in supplier management - eliminate the need to send representatives on repeated trips checking on isolated suppliers; now, a wide range of vendors can be monitored in a single location.
?ACM helps member companies expand new business opportunities by implementing the vision of a multi-company 'virtual supply chain' and supports the introduction of member companies to the worldwide aerospace market.
?ACM takes a multi Level supportive approach, offering company presidents, managers, and operations staffs an environment where experiences are shared, ideas are discussed and knowledge is increased at meetings, events and workshops.
? ACM offers seminars and workshops, and conducts shop level Kaizen's at member companies utilizing the expertise of fellow members, local and world-class consultants.

Mr. Smallidge has already begun work on new projects in ACM along with other key members, which will continue to bring improvements and new opportunities to its member companies.
