Story update 11/08/2010: Terry Crippen is no longer with ATT Metrology Services.

(ATT Metrology Services: Issaquah, Washington) -- ATT is pleased to announce that Terry Crippen has joined the company as vice president of business development as of March 2009. Crippen’s primary role will be to coordinate all customer-related business development activities, marketing and sales, and customer service, and to maintain and enhance the company’s overall quality assurance systems and procedures.

Crippen will work with other members of the ATT Metrology team to seek out and develop new business opportunities and to assure that all existing customers are receiving the highest level of quality and customer service from the products and services that the company provides. Crippen’s overall focus will not only be to grow and diversify ATT’s metrology business, but also to expand ATT’s overall presence as a total solution turnkey provider, including complex design and manufacturing capabilities and enhanced servicing of customers with special needs.

Crippen will be based in the Seattle, Washington, area at the company’s Issaquah facility. He will be available to meet with customers at their facilities, job sites, or at any of ATT’s regional offices. Crippen will be meeting with existing and potential customers to introduce and present ATT Metrology’s new and extensive metrology capabilities. He will also meet with customers to discuss and review new project requirements and be responsible for developing total solutions and winning proposals that exceed customer expectations.

Crippen has more than 25 years of experience working in the design, manufacture, and inspection of complex products, conventional tooling/fixtures, and custom automated equipment, primarily in the aerospace and space industries. He has an extensive background in selecting and implementing various innovative metrology systems, inspection methods, and processes to solve complex manufacturing tooling challenges. In his various quality assurance management roles, Crippen has been responsible for designing, implementing, and maintaining quality assurance systems and procedures. These systems were based on ISO 9001 and the SAE aerospace standard AS9100 for design, manufacturing, and service.

Crippen has held various senior management positions in quality assurance, customer service, and new business development with Hughes Helicopter, McDonald Douglas Helicopter, Teledyne Ryan Aeronautical, Teledyne Power Systems, and, most recently, more than 10 years with Nova-Tech Engineering.

ATT feels strongly that Crippen’s experience and successful track record will prove very useful to the company’s customers.
