Going Above and Beyond with NSL Aerospace

NSL Aerospace, a stalwart of the aerospace industry since 1989, embarked on the journey of elevating their brand and strategic market approach. Thanks to a recommendation from Sheryl Lyons of Culture Spark, our team was brought on to lead the effort.

Crafting a “Challenge Anticipated” Strategy

The mission was clear from the start: develop a robust marketing strategy to support NSL’s growth and improve their approach to client engagement and service delivery. This involved a thorough six-month investigative phase where our team engaged with stakeholders ranging from team members to global clients. Through our research, we discovered why customers choose NSL and why team members love working at NSL. From there, we determined how to improve the overall business development strategy to reach growth in the future. NSL’s dedication to delivering the highest quality customer service and the strong appreciation customers have for their team was evident.

Once the Investigation phase was complete, we entered the Realization phase to sculpt a marketing message that was resonant and reflective of NSL’s current capabilities and future goals. Our plan for their strategic overhaul included a sleek website redesign, targeted digital marketing efforts, and the implementation of a CRM system designed to anticipate and meet client needs more effectively. These efforts were encapsulated in their new strategic message: “Challenge Anticipated.”


A Partnership for Growth

The collaboration between NSL and NLT is ongoing and dynamic, with tangible results already emerging. We’ve revitalized NSL’s marketing with a new emphasis on the qualities their clients cherish most—their people. Through initiatives like the “Core Value Caretakers” series, we are enhancing both internal and external perceptions, aligning every aspect of NSL’s operations with their new ‘Challenge Anticipating’ message. This ongoing effort is paving the way for continued growth and a strengthened market presence.

The shared workspace sessions at the NSL Magnolia office have solidified our partnership and increased the personal growth and professional fulfillment of our team. NSL’s account manager, Angie De La Cruz, reflects on her favorite moment of our time with NSL so far:

“My favorite part of the project has been, without a doubt, our collaboration phase with NSL. Attending their kickoff meeting at the beginning of this year was a pivotal moment for us—it was there that we truly understood the depth of commitment and camaraderie that defines NSL Aerospace. The warmth and unity we experienced have made this project not only a professional endeavor but a personal journey that I cherish. I feel honored and lucky to have them as a client.”

Core Values in Action

Our approach was deeply rooted in our core values, which shone through every facet of the project:

Giving the client what they need, not just what they want.

Giving the client what they need, not just what they want: Beyond fulfilling NSL’s initial requests, NLT identified and addressed deeper strategic needs, positioning NSL to preemptively tackle future challenges through the “Challenge Anticipated” marketing and sales strategy.

We listen before we lead.

We listen before we lead: NLT’s commitment to understanding NSL’s ecosystem before proposing strategies ensures that the solutions offered are innovative and integrative.

Everyone needs what we offer. They just may not be ready for it.

Everyone needs what we offer. They just may not be ready for it: True adaptation takes time. NLT prepared a forward-thinking strategy, pacing its implementation so that NSL team members could have a solid foundation and confidence in the new approach.
