Hedger named to aerospace industry group

Kristin Hedger, an executive for family-owned Killdeer Mountain Manufacturing in western North Dakota, has been named as a member of an aerospace industry advocacy group organized by Boeing Co.
Killdeer Mountain Manufacturing is the only U.S. small business invited to be part of the group of aerospace industry suppliers. The committee has 13 members, including Hedger, who is KMM's vice president for business development, and representatives from GE Aviation, Rolls-Royce and Pratt & Whitney, three of the world's largest jet engine manufacturers.
KMM produces wire harnesses, circuit cards and fiber optic subassemblies for airplanes and is a Boeing supplier. The company employs about 350 North Dakotans at manufacturing locations in Dickinson, Killdeer, Regent and Hettinger.
Hedger stated in a press release that the group will advocate for increased U.S. aerospace sales abroad, including aircraft sales to India and Norway, and support the Export-Import Bank of the United States, which is a key source of financing for commercial aerospace deals overseas.
Boeing recognized KMM's work last April by presenting the with its Excellence in Advocacy Award.
Hedger is the founder and president of the Dakota Defense Alliance, a nonprofit group independent of KMM that aims to help North and South Dakota companies do business with the Pentagon.

About Kristin | Kristin Hedger [cached]

Kristin Hedger

Kristin Hedger
Kristin Hedger's North Dakota roots run deep. Kristin's great grandfather was one of the most prominent dentists in western North Dakota. Her great uncle was one of the founding sheriffs. Her grandfather is one of the foremost business leaders in our state.
Kristin continues this commitment to building a better North Dakota. She has returned to North Dakota to serve as the third generation of leadership with Killdeer Mountain Manufacturing (KMM). KMM is a manufacturing company founded to provide jobs in small communities in North Dakota. With a world-class customer base of commercial aerospace and defense systems, KMM has excelled in providing quality opportunities for farm and ranch families to supplement their incomes, and opportunities for young people to work in the most competitive manufacturing global supply chain.
Kristin is grateful to have had the opportunity to work for Senator Byron Dorgan and work in service to North Dakotans in both his Washington D.C. and Bismarck offices.
Kristin also worked for Senator Dorgan on the Democratic Policy Committee.
Kristin was born in Bismarck and grew up in Killdeer, North Dakota. She completed her high school education at Tivy High School in Kerrville, Texas. She returned each summer and holidays to Killdeer to live with her grandparents throughout her high school years. Having lived with her grandparents throughout the period that her grandfather was founding KMM, she received a deep appreciation for the business, and an appreciation for what small business can do for communities and families in North Dakota.
Kristin also saw, first-hand, how public policy decisions can either help or hinder the progress of small business. This fostered a passion for engaging our democratic process and policymakers for the benefit of small business and the common good. Kristin serves on the board of the National RFID Education Foundation.
Her passion for building better communities through economic development led Kristin to work with other North Dakota businesses to found the Dakota Defense Alliance (DDA). The alliance has grown to have more than 35 member companies and has been successful in networking companies and securing complementary contracts that allow more dollars to remain in our state. DDA's vision is to reach beyond North Dakota's borders to network in the global market and contribute to our defense manufacturing and high technology needs.
Kristin received a bachelor of arts in political science from the American University's School of Public Affairs in Washington, D.C., while playing tennis as a scholarship athlete. Kristin also holds a Masters in Arts and Religion with a concentration in ethics from Yale University, where she served in the Graduate and Professional School Senate and on the Yale Legislative Advocacy Group.

Ex-Im Coalition – Loss of Ex-Im Hurting US Companies [cached]

Kristin Hedger, Owner, Killdeer Mountain Manufacturing

Small North Dakota Manufacturer Says Loss Of Ex-Im Will Make It Difficult To Compete "Against The Whole International Scale. "Hedger's Killdeer Mountain Manufacturing (KMM), headquartered in a town with a population of 751 people, makes parts for airplanes…Some of Boeing's foreign customers, in turn, use the Ex-Im Bank to finance the purchase of planes. And with the aid of those low-interest loans, Boeing - and by extension Hedger's company - remain more competitive in the global aircraft market against the likes France's Airbus. 'These are small, heartland towns, and generally we're the biggest employer in our towns,' says Hedger, who runs four manufacturing facilities in the state. 'It's important that while we recognize we're heartland communities, we're competing against the whole international competition scale.'" (Ginger Gibson, "Who Killed The Ex-Im Bank?
"To Kristin Hedger, the business climate has become more uncertain. Hedger is the vice president of business development for Killdeer Mountain Manufacturing, a Tier 1 manufacturing company with four southwest North Dakota locations.

I think it speaks volumes about what we can do here in Western North Dakota," said Kristin Hedger, V.P. of Business Development, Killdeer Mountain Manufacturing.

Business is great, and the future is very bright, but it's critical that our government do everything we can to keep our companies on the forefront," said Hedger.
Hedger says they are honored by the award, and continue to make the safety of aircraft passengers and military personnel their priority.
"We've got loved ones on the ground, fighting for our freedom everyday, and they rely on that air support. So it's critical that things work the right way, every time, on time," said Hedger.
