The success of Globe Engineering, which is coming off a record year, is due in large part to its diversification, said president and CEO Jeff Teague.
"We're busy," Teague said. "We probably handled the recent downturn in the aviation industry here as good as anybody because we don't let any one customer become that big a part of our business."
Globe is an employee-owned aerospace parts manufacturing and assembly operation with a workforce of more than 200.

Amac Aerospace Switzerland signed a heavy-base-maintenance contract for a head-of-state Boeing 737-700.

The Santa Monica Airport, which has become a poster case for protecting general aviation airports, must stay open until at least 2023, the FAA said on Friday. The historic airport, which has been active since 1917, supports about 300 operations a day and is popular with the private-jet set. It’s less popular with local residents in the densely populated community, who have long complained about noise as well as safety and pollution issues.
Pratt & Whitney has landed its longest-term contract ever for repairing military fighter engines, reaching a 15-year agreement to maintain and upgrade aircraft for Israel's air force.

Solar Impulse has finally raised enough money — $20 million — to resume its record-setting round-the-world trip, according to co-founder and pilot André Borschberg, who spoke at the United Nations climate summit in Paris.
The solar-powered aircraft has been parked in Hawaii since July, when Borschberg finished the trans-Atlantic leg of the journey. Because of a problem with overheating batteries, the Solar Impulse team had to delay the next leg of the trip.
The Commemorative Air Force has declared war on rust.
It's not so much a war, really, as it is a holiday fundraising campaign called the "12 Planes of Christmas."
The CAF, a Texas-based nonprofit, preserves and flies historical military airplanes. Many of the CAF's 165 planes are museum pieces owned and operated by CAF members across the United States.
But what sets the CAF apart from museums is that these folks like to fly their exhibits.
