Kaman are actively looking to increase it's USA tool manufacturing presence and capab~ity, where
:::::::: have two small footPl'ints that service and maintain KAMAN 's own interllBl requirements ,

we currently

KAMAN Bloomsfield CT: Tool maintenance in support of the K Max , and various aerosb'uctures assembly Pl'ograms,
KAMAN Wichita : Mould tool maintenance in support of composite component I structural manufacturing,

The three major considerations are:


Invest in either Of both /he above faciities , and develop them up to the UK standard and capabiities,
Start a new company (KAMAN Tooling USA), potentia/ly in our KAMAN Jacksonville . Whittaker Road facitty

In the UK, we have now out grown our current Darwen faci~ty, and have secured signilicant CAPEX funding Irom
KAMAN Corporate,
This wi. be used to open a second (60,000 sqlft) fad ity, which will become operational during Q2 2013,
and also see the introduction of our newly ordered Correa Nayak 5 Axis CNC machine (20m), in Q4 2013,
