Steven Barnett



Steve began his manufacturing career at GE Aircraft Engines in 1985. He moved to GE Engine Services Division in 1992, and became inspired with the component repair realm of the aviation business. At various GE Repair Facilities, the process of purchasing the small but significant honeycomb rings and segments became a serious limiting factor to various Lean initiatives and progress in that business. With the limited choice of suppliers in October of 1996, Steve purchased Indy Honeycomb in Indianapolis, Indiana where the business was run until moving it to Northern Kentucky in October of 1998. Steve’s main focus then and now is “to make honeycomb easy to buy.”
