Ducommun Incorporated today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement with General Atomics to sell the Company’s Miltec Corporation subsidiary for $14.6 million in cash, subject to post-closing adjustments. Miltec provides engineering, technical and program management services principally to the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. intelligence agencies for advanced weapons systems and military defense systems. The business had sales of approximately $28.2 million in 2015. The completion of the transaction is subject to customary closing conditions. KippsDeSanto & Co. acted as financial advisor to Ducommun.

“With the sale of Miltec, we are taking another proactive step in focusing our energy, attention and resources on the strategic areas that are core to Ducommun’s growth and financial performance going forward,” said Anthony J. Reardon, chairman and chief executive officer. “We believe that our current portfolio is now better positioned to support our vision to provide unique, value-added solutions and technologies to the aerospace, defense and related end markets.”

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
