PARAMOUNT, CA. JULY 14, 2021 – Valence Los Angeles’ Paramount operations is now approved and holds the following Bombardier approvals:

  • BAPS185-003 PEEN FORMING OF METAL PARTS
  • BAPS185-002 SHOT PEENING OF METAL PARTS
  • BAERD-GEN-018 ENGINEERING REQUIREMENTS FOR LABORATORIES field 4A for BATS3211 SURFACE ROUGHNESS, METHOD FOR MEASURING

With these new approvals in place, Valence can continue our mission to provide turn-key processing solutions for our customers in the Southwest United States.

International travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, created a unique opportunity for the Valence and Bombardier Teams to work closely together via video and teleconferences rather than the typical onsite audit. Close collaboration was required to achieve approval from Bombardier.

“The Paramount team worked with our Wichita facility, who already had Bombardier shot peen approvals, to help these approvals come to fruition. We are very excited to support key customers currently producing critical parts for the Bombardier Business Jet programs.”
– Juan Galvan, Production Manager
