About W&G

About W & G Machine Co Inc

Introduction

W & G Machine Company Incorporated (W & G), has been a part of the aerospace industry as a supplier of helicopter spares since 1952.  Originally the company was a supplier of spares to the Sikorsky Aircraft Company for their full fleet of aircraft.  This arrangement changed in the early 1980’s when W & G’s role as a Sikorsky supplier ended to allow the company more autonomy and independence.  As a result of this change in strategic direction, the core business of W & G expanded with the primary focus changing to the US Department of Defense, in particular, the US Army.

In more recent years, commencing from about 1987, W & G expanded its business further by seeking contracts from overseas operators of Sikorsky and Boeing built aircraft,

W & G’s customer base now includes the Pacific Basin and NATO operators. The broadening of the customer base has also included the number of aircraft types supported which now extends to Sikorsky (UH60, SH60, H53, H3), Boeing (CH47) and McDonnell Douglas (AH-64 Apache).

Current Role of W & G Machine Company

Today the core business of W & G Machine Company is to provide spare parts support and related logistics services to the US Military helicopter fleet of Sikorsky and Boeing aircraft.  This is achieved through the various US Defense Logistics Agencies (DLA) who have been delegated the procurement tasks by the Pentagon and also the individual Service Logistics Commands.

Quality Control and Inspection

 All detail components of assemblies are 100% inspected (both 100% in terms of lot size and dimensional criteria per the blueprint drawings) prior to being used in any assemblies.

Blue Print specification requirements are provided to W & G sub-contractors routinely via all purchase orders and mandate the use of OEM approved processes and sources.  This ensures components and material supplied to W & G are identical in terms of all technical specifications and characteristics to those supplied to the prime manufacturer.  In many instances, it is the same vendor used by the prime manufacturer.
