Dr. Shmuel Fledel, TAT's CEO commented:
"The first six months of year 2010 were a challenging period for TAT and the whole Aviation industry. We used this period to complete reorganization steps in our U.S. operations already initiated during 2009. We continued our lean manufacturing initiatives, improved our yields and effected additional management changes, including strengthening our marketing team. During this period we continued to enhance our competitive advantage and we're proud that Piedmont Aviation, our U.S subsidiary, was awarded the Best APU Overhaul & Repair Station by the prestigious OneAero Top Shop contest for the third consecutive year. This award together with our focus on enhancing our strategic relationships with industry leaders such as Lockheed Martin, Honeywell, Hamilton and others will impact our future growth. Our goal is to be a significant player in our MRO and OEM products for the commercial and military aerospace and ground defense industries. We believe that the latest strategic steps that we took, and the recent deals we announced, should assist in improving our results in the next quarters".
