About Appletree Consulting Inc
Appletree Consulting, Inc.

Appletree Consulting Inc. (ACI) was incorporated in 1999 to address the needs of national and international aerospace businesses in dealing with their suppliers, subcontractors, vendors and partners on the American west coast.

ACI applies wide-ranging experience covering most engineering aspects of major aerospace programs. This experience spans from concept design and prototyping, through development, integration, qualification and flight test, then on into production and ultimately on to the aftermarket.

Company History

Formation of ACI came after first-hand observation of the significant benefits that a large aerospace company gained by placing members of its own staff at a remote supplier on a full-time basis.

This on-site presence provided many advantages. The benefits of this representation were particularly notable during times of difficulty or crisis.

However, while major benefits were obtained by having the representation, the costs associated with placing and maintaining this full-time on-site presence were significant.

ACI was thus formed with the goal of providing national and international businesses the posibility of having on-site representation at suppliers in Western America without the cost and complication of using their own staff.
