Pointe Precision will be attending the Aerospace & Defense Supplier Summit Seattle, March 11-13, 2014. The first of its kind in the United States, Aerospace & Defense Supplier Summit Seattle is an opportunity for leaders in the aerospace industry to meet with potential industry partners.

The Aerospace & Defense Supplier Summit will be held at the Seattle Convention Center, March 11-13, 2013.

"Boeing needs a dynamic, engaged, highly capable and constantly improving supply chain. That's why we are supporting the 2014 Aerospace & Defense Supplier Summit in Seattle and encouraging our top tier suppliers to attend."
