Extension Of Work With Boeing Commercial Airliner Division
Sonic Industries, Inc., a member of the Sargent Aerospace &
Defense company, said Tuesday that it has been chosen by Boeing as
a member of its nationwide team competing for the U.S. Air Force's
new fleet of aerial refueling tankers.
By joining with Boeing to become part of the United States
Tanker team, Sonic Industries will become eligible to increase
orders if Boeing is awarded the U.S. Air Force tanker contract in
mid-2010. Sonic Industries currently makes specialty, high-strength
fasteners for all Boeing's Commercial Aircraft platforms, including
its new flagship, the 787 Dreamliner.
"Sonic Industries' selection as a potential aerial tanker
supplier demonstrates our trusted relationship with Boeing and our
unwavering commitment to serve them and our nation's warfighters,"
said Ed Elsner, Vice President, Sonic Industries. "Sargent has been
supplying specialty fasteners, self-lubricated lined bearings, and
hydraulic controls to Boeing for more than 30 years on both
commercial and military platforms. The Boeing tanker bid will
certainly allow us to create additional business opportunities to
help support our 700+ workers, their families and our community,"
