DREAM MEETS DETERMINATION
Acclaim Aerospace & Defense was founded in late 2019 by Rebecca and Jason Premo & is proudly a woman-owned small business.
Jason has a long history in the aerospace & 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 & innovative CNC machining center specializing in ultra-tight-tolerance swiss lathe products. Acclaim Aerospace & Defense is the result of years of sweat equity, hard work & determination to bring this dream to fruition.
RISING TIDES RAISE ALL SHIPS
Rebecca & Jason intentionally located Acclaim in an Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone). These rural & urban areas are targeted by the Small Business Administration for incentives to bring industry to places where there are traditionally higher rates of poverty & 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 & 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 & Delta/FAA pilot training program, all a five minute drive away from our factory.
This allows us to cut down lead & 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 customers’ needs and deadlines. Read more about our location’s unique area partnerships:
