Join your colleagues for a Breakfast Showcase
Wed., November 2, 2016 • 7:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.
at Go Engineer #C, 901 Algona Way, Algona, WA



Steve Kidd and his company, CIMtech, have led our region in the implementation of:

•  Additive manufacturing for end use parts in aerospace and tooling applications

•  Advanced manufacturing including aerospace 5 axis machining and robotics for manufacturing

•  3-D reverse engineering, laser scanning complex structures, many in aerospace

•  Building a global searchable database for aerospace suppliers to locate and communicate within the community

His work has lightened the load of vehicles bound for space, created a global database for the aerospace supply chain, produced prototypes and parts for companies around the world, and improved the lives of burn victims and children with physical challenges.

Join PNAA to hear Steve’s incredible story of achievement and see first-hand why he received PNAA’s Inspire Award.  From 30 years in aerospace machining and manufacturing to STEM leader, First Robotics champion and passionate advocate for the next generation of aerospace workers, Steve has been an inspiration to the industry and has changed lives in the process.
