Oil patch bits: Airframes Alaska voted #1 fastest growing company in Alaska
Airframes Alaska said Aug. 13 that Heather Montgomery, a life-long Alaskan and CEO of Alaska Tent & Tarp, Airframes Alaska, Alaska Bushwheels and Reeve Airmotive, has successfully grown the umbrella of business for more than seven years and is expanding its manufacturing capabilities in Alaska to supply customers around the world. Montgomery held the previous positions of COO and CFO. With her exceptional entrepreneurial skills, she currently leads a team of 80 employees. In 2015, Airframes Alaska was voted as one of the fastest growing companies in INC 5000 and was ranked No. 1 in Alaska.
The company’s new focus is on integrating its latest acquisition of Alaska Tent and Tarp, which took place on Jan. 1. The Anchorage location has moved to Merrill Field at 2424 5th Ave. The newly remodeled showroom encompasses Alaska Tent & Tarp and aviation all under one roof, a complementary fit, as Alaska aviators love to explore “Life beyond Runways” and accessing their “True Wilderness” with the latest gear options and innovative advancements with technology.
For over 60 years, Alaska Tent & Tarp has provided the oil and gas industry with commercial fabric, pit liners, custom covers and installation for customers across Alaska and around the world. With retail and manufacturing stores located in Fairbanks and Anchorage, the company has a solid presence in the Alaska market. Alaska Tent & Tarp’s products are custom designed, handmade for arctic conditions, and are suitable for commercial, recreational and personal use.
The company continues to follow the message communicated by its mission: to design, fabricate and sell commercial, industrial, military, and recreational fabric products for all environments. For more information www.alaskatent.com or www.airframesalaska.com.
