Danko Arlington was again honored for a second time this year to host the American Metal Consortium (AMC) and a bus tour from the Defense Logistics Agency. The company’s close proximity to the DLA Aviation Headquarters in Richmond, Virginia provided engineers, buyers, and specialists an opportunity to see how the company’s pattern shop, foundry, and machine shop work together to produce critical components for the Warfighter.
The visit also provided a good exchange of ideas and discussion on future technical challenges, including America’s loss of many manufacturing skills which may become a national security crisis.
At the conclusion of the tour, the company was presented a beautiful framed photo collage taken from past AMC tours, as well as a Letter of Appreciation from Brigadier General Scott Jansson, Commander of the DSCR.
