Charles Crabtree is among those rare people who spent an entire career with one company: Lockheed Martin Aeronautical Corporation.
Working his way from the bottom up, learning as he climbed the ladder and becoming successful at various positions during his 49 year stint with the company. “I learned the planning of composites, assembly and detail, electrical and avionics, modification, machined parts, corrective action, and tubing,” says Crabtree. “And because of my knowledge and vast experience, I was able to produce about twice the production as the average worker.” Crabtree is a testament on how to master a craft within one company while growing as it succeeds.
It is with this vast knowledge that he joined Zintro as an expert in aeronautical tool and manufacturing planning. And at 75 years of age, Crabtree knows that his knowledge and experience are still relevant in the marketplace. He received an inquiry from the Zintro system from a client looking to speak to aerospace engineers or part purchasers familiar with the decision process for buying extruded plastic parts/components for the aerospace industry. Crabtree jumped on the opportunity. “I am fortunate that Zintro exists,” says Crabtree. “Zintro values experience over age and this led me to being accepted for the phone consult job. I appreciate Zintro because it allows me to continue to practice my skill at 75 when most companies will not hire beyond 55 years of age. Zintro provides a marketplace for people with special skills regardless of age.”
