From Rich Ballantyne, Heath Tecna president & CEO and Gary Chris, Heath Tecna vice president, Sales and Marketing
Heath Tecna, one of Washington’s main aerospace manufacturers, was pleased to have two pieces of good news to share at the Paris Air Show today. First, Heath Tecna announced that it was recently awarded a major contract with Austrian Airlines to upgrade and reconfigure six Boeing 767-300 and four 777-200 interiors. Heath Tecna was also pleased to announce its partnership with Korean Airlines for the supply of bars, sofas, and other furnishings, to be installed on ten A380 superjumbos as part of the airline’s Prestige class. These types of awards indicate the strength of Washington’s aerospace sector, and Heath Tecna is a proud contributor to that strength. We appreciated the state’s support of our efforts. The Governor’s meetings with Austrian Airlines senior executives and her continued support of Heath Tecna’s new employee training program through the Workforce Investment Act are tangible demonstrations of ongoing commitment to Washington’s aerospace industry.
