Production To Begin In Florida Immediately
The FAA has granted a production certification to Becker
Avionics to manufacture the Digital Voice Communication System
(DVCS) 6100 at its U.S. subsidiary, in Miramar, Florida.
"With certification and production authority in hand, Becker
Avionics will begin manufacturing the DVCS6100 system in the U.S.
immediately" said Roland Becker, President and CEO of the Becker
Avionics Group. "The decision for establishing a U.S. production
line was taken in 2009. This step is of great importance to the
Becker Avionics Group, as we strengthen our presence in the U.S. We
are committed long-term to enhancing our U.S. presence as well as
serving the North and South American aviation markets more closely.
Over the past 2 years we have focused on penetrating the U.S.
market, and it is critical for us that we remain competitive in the
biggest aviation market in the world."
"Our staff worked hard over the past 18 months to build-up the
production capability," added Arturo Garcia, Production Manager.
"This included excessive overseas training, facility modification,
inventory build-up and establishing the required FAA documentation
and manuals to receive the FAA production certificate. The local
production capability will further strengthen our U.S. employee
base, support maintaining our competitive edge, and will bring
significant economic activity to Becker Avionics."
