I have a business plan.... This is my Elevator Speech and plan outline. I’m stressing in an elevator anxious to meet the new prospect for funding. Thinking to myself…. Out of nowhere I blurt-out the following, “Man where can I scrape up a couple million bucks to start this new project”? Not paying any prior attention to the guy next to me. He say’s
Couple million bucks! WHAT FOR? I say…
“I want to build the World Largest World Class Additive Manufacturing Plant”.
What's that? He asks.
A Factory of the future that 3D prints anything out of metal, plastics, metal powders, resins and other materials too. To make extremely High Quality parts for Aerospace Systems and other industries for about 80% lower cost.
PROBLEM: Subtractive Manufacturing Processes, High cost to product, Labor Intensive, Long Lead times, “TOXIC” Waste Management programs, Extensive Maintenance Requirements, Global Networking, Large Workforces.
SOLUTION: Change the Paradigm on Manufacturing Processes in America to Additive Manufacturing 3D printing.
Large World Class Additive Manufacturing Plant by Lean Engineering Concepts Inc. Strategically located.
PLAN: Build the Worlds Largest World Class Additive Manufacturing Plant in USA
FOCUS: The ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING “3D METAL PRINTING” of the TITANIUM, TUNGSTON, and ALUMINUM METAL PARTS of COMMERCIAL and MILITARY AIRCRAFT, SPACE VEHICALS and AUTOMOTIVE SYSTEMS, Medical and Dental devices.
About the Company...
Daniel L Kilgore: A NON-SALARY Founder/President/CEO
LEAN ENGINEERING CONCEPTS INC.
Lean Engineering Concepts Inc. is a technology based Research & Development and Manufacturing company whose core is “3D Printing Additive Manufacturing”. The operations will focus on Computer Aided Design (CAD) integrated to Rapid Prototyping and Fabrication of sophisticated complex parts and products. Prospective customers will be able to access “on line” services to transform designs to prototypes as well as cost effective sort run production parts.
The state-of-the art process develops solid objects directly from three dimensional model data by layered printing of materials to exact tolerances. The traditional cumbersome methods of fabrication, such as, forming, casting, machining are eliminated due to obsolete and time consuming sequences. Materials include, but are not limited to polymers and metals.

Competition: Additive Manufacturing is revolutionizing the world of Manufacturing processes at an extremely fast pace mostly in the development of bigger, faster, better 3D printing devises in metal and plastics. However Manufactures are racing to change their processes. GE Aerospace The Boeing Company and others are experimenting with Additive Manufacturing Technologies and doing great things in this market that will soon be very competitive space. But we will provide sub-contract suppliers services to them as well.
Advantage: The advantage of Lean Engineering Concepts Inc. is the innovative vision and expertise of the Founder and Chief Executive Officer… Dan Kilgore Aerospace companies have invested Hundreds of MILLIONS of dollars in my IDEAS.
Recipient of (2) Silver Eagle Awards from the Boeing Company My valuable connections in the industries. 35 years of proved Team building and personal hands on involvement in the development of Commercial and Military Aerospace Manufacturing Systems and Training in LEAN practices and principles is unmatched. Retired from The Boeing Company. Trained through out life by companies like Northrop, Rockwell International, The Boeing Company, McDonnell Douglas, LTV Vought Aerospace.
In support of our 3D Additive Manufacturing plan we have secured a online portal www.3DAM.online for registered customers to be able to upload a CAD design to our 3D printers and create a prototype of their project for a set fee prior the master run of said project also for set fee to be determined through price negotiation's based on materials and time of use.
Our point of entry into The Additive Manufacturing Market would be through the home-based plant location. Revenues from offering 3D printed services to the local community. A public access to 3D prototyping and 3D prototyping online services thru our www.3DAM.online web portal leading to a master model for a fee and production per unit at a fee.
These services will allow the ordinary “JOE” Hobbyist or small manufacture to create a prototype model and perfecting it prior to a production run. We will also provide “PRODUCTION” services to who ever wish these services creating a revenue flow.
Forward Looking Statements
First entry in to the Aerospace Systems manufacturers market would be through The Boeing Company's Vendor process by applying for "Bronze" level Vendor Supplier. where we will offer our services to 3D print A/C parts. The key to become a Boeing supplier is to be ISO 9000 certified which we plan to be within 2 years of operational activities. Once we become a Bronze level vendor doors will open to more opportunities as we progress upwards to a "Gold" level supplier.
Our second, Third and Forth avenues for entry into this market would be submitting to the same process level vendor status with Northrop/Grumman, Lockheed Aerospace, Airbus Aerospace and other aircraft manufactures.
Our 3DAM.online web portal will be opportunity to gain market share of the 3d online market where advanced users can create an account and upload cad models of there own run a 3d printed prototype on our unique setup of online 3d printers, for a fee depending on complexity and consumption of material used.
Community Responsibility: Our community awareness programs will help fulfill our community responsibilities, Lean Engineering Concepts shall be dedicated to help and support the local medical community with free services for disabled children and disabled Veterans in the form of 3D printed prosthetics and other assistive devices.
