Uplink: Innovation — Ball Aerospace, Plus a Discussion with Debra Facktor

Satnews, August 23, 2018: When discussing innovation with Debra Facktor, the VP and GM, Strategic Operations at Ball Aerospace, she explained why innovation is important to the industry and, in particular, to her company. Ms. Facktor said, "The foundation of the aerospace industry is innovation — learning, inventing and evolving toward the next great discovery. For Ball Aerospace, it is part of our heritage and also part of the reason for our continued growth. "Innovation is important to the success of the aerospace industry, and that innovation starts with people, especially when the people come from diverse cultures and backgrounds with a wide set of expectations, ideas and experiences. At Ball, we strive to have diverse and inclusive teams because we see firsthand that different views, combined with a collaborative approach, can lead to better value and better solutions for our customers that might not necessarily be seen or known otherwise. Technology and product innovation doesn’t happen in a vacuum, it starts with people. So, when I say Ball values innovation, it’s synonymous with how we value our people and our culture."
