Greg Sabin joined the North Carolina Military Business Center in September 2015. Greg is an Aerospace Engineer with over 25 years of industry experience in government service, university and academia, and as a private business owner. Greg is experienced with all phases of business ownership and business development to include opportunity identification, teaming and partnerships, proposal writing and contracts, customer and employee relationships, and financial management. Fair warning: Greg’s enthusiasm for the Entrepreneurial Spirit in North Carolina is infectious.
While working for the Naval Air Systems Command as a structural design engineer and manufacturing technologist, Greg performed design, repair, and modification in-service engineering efforts on Navy aircraft including the AV-8B, V-22, C-130, AH-1, UH-1, F-14, F-18, F-4, A-4, H-53, H-60, H-3, T-45, and H-46. He supported a wide range of manufacturing projects and also served as a technology development and transition engineer. Greg is recognized as one of the first engineers to promote and utilize fully digital methods in structural engineering and manufacturing processes. Greg was an early adopter of 3D solid modeling (CAD) and was instrumental in the introduction of deployable measuring arms, 3D scanners, and reverse-engineering and design methods for Depot operations to include mold making processes. He was the first NavAir engineer to purchase an additive manufacturing machine and is recognized as an early developer, if not the first proponent of what is now called “The Digital Depot,” which includes a strong emphasis on additive manufacturing processes.
Greg also worked as a business development manager for North Carolina State University, where he helped establish and manage technical, research, and developmental contracts for customers ranging from local North Carolina small businesses to large aerospace prime contractors and governmental agencies, with projects ranging from a few thousand dollars to several millions of dollars.
Greg has started several technical businesses and currently runs Addtek (www.Addtekmsg.com) which offers a range of technical services in the area of metals additive manufacturing including materials development, product re-design for additive manufacturing, quality assessment, process development and optimization, and consulting to manufacturing businesses as they transition to additive processes, including cost-benefit analyses and process integration.
Greg’s office is in the Craven County Community College in Havelock. He currently resides in Craven County near the Cherry Branch Ferry with his wife Debbie and two children, Gregory, a freshman at UNC Chapel Hill, and Sierra, a sophomore at Havelock High School.
