Aerospace manufacturer poised for exponential growth leverages leading quoting and estimating platform to catapult expansion.

Nicholasville, KYMachine Time Inc., a leading manufacturer of complex aerospace parts, is proud to announce its partnership with Paperless Parts, the industry’s premier estimating and quoting software. Adopting Paperless Parts will transform Machine Time’s quoting process, setting the stage for Machine Time’s ambitious expansion plans.

Machine Time has established a strong reputation in the aerospace defense industry and aims to be the gold standard in precision manufacturing. With a current workforce of 20 employees, the company is gearing up for growth through acquisitions, including procuring machinery and infrastructure and establishing new locations nationwide. Consequently, having a centralized and standardized quoting process has become imperative.

“Investing in technology like Paperless Parts is investing in our team members,” said Craig Jackson, Machine Time CEO. “Our partnership with Paperless Parts will not only help us innovate and expand our capabilities to better serve our customers, but also create a culture of excellence that benefits our entire team.”

In six months, Jackson plans to transition from CEO to Chief Vision Officer and concentrate on acquisitions. Paperless Parts’ centralized and secure platform will capture the industry knowledge of Machine Time’s experienced team, giving Jackson the comfort to be able to step away. It will also ensure a seamless onboarding process for new estimators.

The efficiency and predictability the platform will add to their quoting process will further enable Jackson’s smooth transition; utilizing features of Paperless Parts such as its geometry-driven costing analysis, customizable pricing logic, secure and centralized chat tools, automatic DFM warnings, workflows, and digital quotes, Machine Time will enhance its ability to respond promptly and accurately to bids. This efficiency, consistency, and pricing transparency are vital for sustaining growth in the competitive aerospace and defense industry.

“Machine Time has set out to make their shop a household name in aerospace manufacturing, and we could not be more excited to be a part of their journey,” said Jason Ray, Co-Founder & CEO of Paperless Parts. “We firmly believe their commitment to excellence will propel them to new heights.”
