CHICOPEE, MA, January, 2017—Duval Precision Grinding has been officially approved as a Tier 1 vendor for General Electric (GE). After recent growth, GE has been adding more vendors to their roster of trusted service providers to accommodate increased production demands. As industry experts in aerospace grinding, Duval was chosen to provide precision grinding services as a tier 1 vendor.
