BURNABY, BC, Sept. 22 /CNW/ - International Water-Guard Industries Inc.
(IWG) is pleased to announce that it is commencing supply of complete water
system assemblies to Midcoast Aviation of Cahokia, IL.
"The extension of our relationship with Midcoast to the supply of
complete water system assemblies is a vote of confidence in the capability of
IWG as an aircraft system supplier," said IWG President & Chief Executive
Officer David C. Fox. "We have been supplying our water treatment units for
several years. With our expanded engineering capabilities and AS9100
certification, progression to the system level was a natural for us."
The assemblies or "pallets" are Midcoast's own design. "Supporting a
completion center on a build-to-print basis is a new direction. With the
current pressures on aircraft delivery, we are able to use our special water
system expertise in supporting the completion industry to accelerate
production. This capability can only be provided by a fully qualified supplier
such as IWG," says Fox.
Initial deliveries will begin in early 2009.
