Our sincerest acknowledgement to all ACM employees. This is your achievement. The 1.5 Millionth parts produced in nearly 20 years since commencing operation back in 2001 is a major milestone. This is a culmination of hardwork and dedication of each and every one of you. In 2018 we produced nearly 13,000 parts per month delivered to our customer, close to 70 month without a Loss Time Injury and onboarding 10 new programs in 2017/2018. Lets look forward to achieve our 2019 goals and get a step closer to our next milestone.
