FARNBOROUGH, England, July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TECT announced today that the newest member of its family of businesses, TECT Aerospace Components, located in Guanajuato, Mexico, has begun manufacturing operations in support of sister business TECT Aerospace.
TECT Aerospace Components' new facility is producing three- and four-axis machined and fabricated components for TECT Aerospace that get incorporated into larger work statements and complex assemblies for several end customers in the Seattle, Wichita and Ft. Worth areas. Once the initial startup phase is completed, TECT Aerospace Components plans to begin servicing external customers.
"The facility startup has gone smoothly," said Ray May, director general of TECT Aerospace Components. "We have installed our equipment, hired and trained our initial workforce, and begun producing first article pieces on most of our beginning statement of work."
