Liteflex is also fully compliant with DOD contracting and sub-contracting requirements. We are currently seeking HUB Zone Manufacturer certification.
We are always on the lookout to team with or assist in providing high strength, low mass part or component manufacturing requirements. Our successful history of working with major DoD primes to support demanding military requirements as an integrated service provider, while providing critical small business content, has proven we are a trusted partner/provider of finished complex glass and carbon reinforced composite parts and subassemblies. Our total manufacturing service from raw material to finished product, insures quality control traceability throughout the entire production cycle.
Liteflex’s proximity to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and the Air Force Research Laboratory allows contractor engineering and development personnel easy access during development and prototyping.
