Supplier Management


Supplier Management Team

LMI has a supplier management and procurement team that is responsible for and authorized to contract maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), capital equipment, raw material, detail components, processing, logistics, partial subcontract requirements, shop and office suppliers, and services.

In coordination with our engineering and manufacturing teams, these management and procurement specialists determine the source of supplies, along with the negotiation of commitments using our standard terms and conditions along with any customer specific flow downs in support of providing a quality product on time. This process ensures our customers receive products and services of the highest quality, provided from the appropriate and approved source of supply.
