LORD Corporation — a global leader in the management of vibration, noise and motion control — was named as one of the Best Places to Work for aerospace and defense professionals by Aviation Week & Space Technology magazine.
The list, assembled by Aviation Week & Space Technology, is based on their 2009 workforce study that involved ranking respondents on the basis of criteria deemed most important by readers. Once the data was in hand, companies were ranked in three categories: “Technological Challenge,” “Valuing the Individual/Diversity” and “Learning/Career Opportunity.” LORD Corporation received The Best Places to Work honor in the “Technological Challenge” and “Valuing the Individual/Diversity” categories. Only seven companies were chosen for each category.
Written for executive, management, engineering, design personnel in aerospace-related industries as well as government in both civilian and military sectors, Aviation Week & Space Technology provides coverage of leading aviation and space technology, including specific computer applications. The magazine, with a circulation of 93,190, contains worldwide news and events on the aviation and aerospace industries, airlines, defense, space and technology policies, avionics and related information technology. “As a proven leader that has provided solutions to the aerospace industry for more than eight decades, this is a tremendous honor for LORD Corporation,” said Rick McNeel, LORD Corporation President.
Scott Lefferts, LORD Director of Mechanical Product Development, said this distinction is representative of LORD Corporation’s ongoing commitment to providing the ever-changing aerospace marketplace with solutions using a combination of adhesive, coating and shock/noise/vibration control technologies.
“From the first rubber-to-metal engine mount in the 1930s to today’s electro-mechanical active vibration control systems, LORD has developed flight-critical components and systems to address the aerospace industry’s toughest noise and vibration problems on aircrafts,” said Lefferts.
