"TIMCO is excited to have been selected for an integration program of this scale," said Rick Salanitri, Executive Vice President of TIMCO Aviation Services, Inc. and President of TIMCO Aerosystems. "The fact that we've been experiencing considerable success in the design, manufacture, installation and certification of lightweight galleys, lavatories and other monuments for a wide range of airlines in recent years gives us considerable insight for addressing a wide range of integration challenges and solutions.  We are looking forward to meeting our new customer's expectations and to delivering success with this new program."
