United Titanium Produces Custom Titanium parts for Northrop Grumman
For defense contractor, United Titanium gets it right every time
For more than 12 years, Northrop Grumman, a global provider of security and defense solutions for government and commercial customers, has turned to United Titanium for its specialty metal and custom titanium parts.
As the company’s supply chain program manager, Sharon Hyson has extensive experience working with the engineers at United Titanium. “[Their customer service] is probably the best I have with any supplier. Truly, and that’s all I do,” she said.
Hyson said one project in particular stands out. When Northrop Grumman needed a customized part, other vendors she quoted said it would take at least four or five months to produce. But when her team sent a sketch to United Titanium, their team quickly turned around a rendering and finished product.
“They’re innovative,” she said. “They respond to custom requirements other than what they shelve.”
