DREAM MEETS DETERMINATION
Acclaim Aerospace & Defense was founded in late 2019 by Rebecca and Jason Premo, and is proudly a woman-owned small business.
Jason has a long history in the aerospace and defense manufacturing sector, having previously co-owned Adex Machining Technologies in South Carolina. Rebecca has an extensive corporate leadership background & owned a marketing company that targeted the aerospace & oil/gas sectors.
So, when the two were married & talked about dreams for the future, they set their sights on combining their talents. The result is a modern, efficient, and innovative CNC machining center specializing in ultra-tight tolerance swiss lathe products. Acclaim Aerospace and Defense is the result of years of sweat equity, hard work & determination to bring this dream to fruition.
RISING TIDES RAISE ALL SHIPS
Rebecca and Jason intentionally located the company in an Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone). These rural and urban areas are targeted by the Small Business Administration for incentives to bring industry to places where there are traditionally higher rates of poverty and fewer job opportunities.
It is part of the mission at Acclaim to support & grow the local economic infrastructure & provide opportunities for better-than-average wages in the area for its employees. They believe that a rising tide raises all ships, and that their willingness to invest in the area is an invitation and incentive for others to do the same. Every purchase order from our customers is a vote for more economic opportunity in the community in which Acclaim operates.
Acclaim benefits from the symbiosis of a growing aerospace hub in Middle Georgia, with NADCAP coatings & heat treating companies, plus an aviation mechanics school and Delta/FAA pilot training program, all a five minute drive away from our factory.
This allows us to cut down lead and shipping times on special processes, while providing us with a stream of both interns & new graduates to recruit from as Acclaim continues to grow & expand. We are flexible at peak times to run 7 days a week/3 shifts to meet our customer’s needs and deadlines. Read more about our location’s unique area partnerships:
