Aviation and Aerospace
Shark-Co works with you to develop custom foam solutions for your aviation and aerospace tools. We realize that tool inventory management and control is an issue of key importance for your industry, especially when implementing 5S LEAN and Six Sigma standards. Avoid foreign object debris and catastrophic events with a place for every tool in contrasting foam.
