Welcome to Baere!
This is where your fuel and lubricant solutions begin.

Baere is a woman-owned business certified in the state of Indiana, formed to fill a niche market in aerospace material management, specifically fuels, lubricants, adhesives, paints, and other organic coatings and seals.
Research on aerospace fuels and lubricants continues at unprecedented rates.   New fuels from bio-renewable sources, cleaner burning synthetic fuels, and opportunities away from foreign crude oil provides opportunities.   It also raises questions -on the impacts of use, -on deployment, -on specifications and certifications.

You have questions...  We have answers. 

Women IN Green - April 2, 2016

April 2, 2016, Indianapolis
Baere's president was a table host at the Women IN Green meeting.  This was an opportunity for professional women to get together and discuss being professional women, often in male dominated industries.  The focus of the group was sustainability, primarily related to things like LEED, but the attendees were from a very broad range of industries.

"I met women from construction, from architecture, from fitness companies, and non-profits working with at-risk young women.  They were young, enthusiastic, and passionate," says Melanie Thom, company president.  "I had an opportunity to share what I have learned working in aerospace with a number of college scholarship winners.  The trick for them is to recognize where we older women have come from, and enjoy the fruits of our labor before going into battle for the next level of progress.  Too often we older women are still fighting a battle won and we instill too harsh of expectations in those women following us."

"My favorite take-away was from Akilah Darden of TriVersity Construction.  She said to us 'Be brief.  Be specific. Be gone.'  And she is right.  Too often I see both men and women comein with an idea and try to do the entire explanation right there.  Instead, give the idea and let it go.  If they want to know more, THEN go into detail.  But that means you had better have the details when they do ask!" 

Baere Aerospace felt it was important to participate in the luncheon as an opportunity to give back and provide mentoring to the younger women.  And the opportunity to meet women from other industries was also a bonus.
