  SEATTLE, WA, Nov 16 (Marketwire) -- 
GMN Aerospace was joined by The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA) representatives
for a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Seattle plant of GMN Aerospace. The
ceremony commemorated the opening of a new manufacturing cell dedicated
to aerospace. Following the event, Carlo Mears, Vice President of GMN
Aerospace and Alan Wittman, Director of Supplier Management, Interiors at
The Boeing Company signed a new contract of intent extending the business
relationship between the two companies. 

    The new manufacturing cell was established as a result of collaboration
between GMN Aerospace and The Boeing Company. The two companies worked
together to create efficiencies within GMN that would ultimately support
Boeing's affordability goals. The new cell represents one step that GMN
Aerospace has taken to reduce delivery time. 

    "We have built a strong relationship with The Boeing Company but we
realize that it is performance based and we only excel when we work
together," said Mears. "We must continue to improve our processes to
provide value with quality products that are delivered on-time. These
steps are part of a larger effort on the part of GMN Aerospace to support
all of the Aerospace companies we serve."
