Who We Are
We are a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned full-spectrum solution provider, not just of traditional technology, but ideas of all kinds that improve our nation's national security posture.
We were founded in 2016 by James Morford and Michael Morford who are both Service-Disabled Veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The company is certified as a SDVOSB and HubZone. We're headquartered in Duncan, OK.
VertiPrime started out as a manufacturer for oilfield service parts and heavy equipment and then soon transitioned into structural airframe replacement parts. Focused on military aircraft for the United States Government.
We soon evolved to become a solution development company out of necessity. It became apparent very quickly that many parts could not be made due to three primary technology constraints:
No technical data packages
Outdated methods of manufacturing
As a manufacturer of structural airframe replacement parts, we focus on military aircraft for the United States Government. We leverage our deep background in military logistics as well as precision CNC manufacturing to address the shortage of quality parts our fighting force needs to maintain fleet readiness and protect our nation.
From the venerable UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter to the granddaddy of them all, the B-52 Stratofortress, we focus on aging fighter jets, helicopters, and long-range bombers that make up the majority of the U.S. Department of Defense's aviation fleet.
Virtually every aircraft program we target has been in service for over 20 years with the average age of the aircraft we service to be over 35 years. (The B-52's maiden flight was closer in age to the Wright Brothers than today!)
We are currently developing a technology procurement framework to help solve issues around part obsolescence, the absence of technical data packages, and outdated manufacturing methods.
