Danko Arlington is an aerospace and defense manufacturer that has been designing and building turnkey solutions for commercial and military applications since 1920. From building parts for rockets, ships, satellites, and weapon systems, Danko operates in a field highly driven by compliance with quality assurance as a top priority. As a third-generation family-owned business, the small team at Danko prides itself on offering personalized service and custom products that use cutting edge technology.
But in 2017, this innovative firm’s operations were not keeping up with its modern technology and Danko found itself in jeopardy of losing business. As the company struggled to satisfy their sales obligations, Sales and IT Executive Michael Santiago introduced management to Quickbase. Amid contract delinquencies and insufficient tracking of production, Danko did away with the legacy ERP system they had been using since the 80s and replaced it with Quickbase.
Just three years after implementing Quickbase, Danko Arlington has fully upgraded their operations. By tapping into the power of data and connectivity, this hundred-year-old company gave its history a new chapter and set themselves up for the future -- improving their on-time deliveries and reinforcing their 2017 Metalcaster of the Year award from American Foundry Society for innovation in hiring and in technology. Today, Danko Arlington remains an industry leader in expansion mode, consistently acquiring new sales as a result of their innovation and providing training and employment opportunities in the heart of Baltimore City.
