As a wholly owned Canadian company, Cascade’s 192 Canadian and numerous U.S.  and international suppliers are vital to its success supporting military, search and rescue, humanitarian and commercial aerospace programs.  By being part of Cascade Aerospace’s approved supplier team, these same suppliers have an opportunity to participate in Cascade’s export programs for international C-130 and commercial programs.

Each of Cascade’s top suppliers were evaluated based on key factors including Delivery, Quality, Communications and Cost Reduction Initiatives in the areas of Manufacturing, Support Services, and Distribution.  These key factors ensure our customers continue to return to Cascade for repeat business as well as act as our ambassadors for new business.

This year Cascade Aerospace is pleased to recognize our top six suppliers;

  • Trulife Engineered Solutions,
  • Pyrotek Heat Treating,
  • MHD Rockland,
  • KLX Aerospace,
  • Kellstrom Industries, and
