AHW Partners with TYE to Supply Panel Inserts to Zodiac Aerospace

Aircraft Hardware West continues to grow with the recent award of one of the largest long term agreements (LTA) from Zodiac Aerospace. A sizeable part of the LTA is the honeycomb panel inserts. Along with the 5 year LTA awarded in May 2010, this combines to make up one of the largest contracts of panel inserts in the industry. To support this sizeable demand AHW has contracted with The Young Engineers (TYE) a privately held company in Lake Forest, CA, and one of the leading manufacturers of honeycomb panel inserts and turn-loc fasteners. These contracts also extend to support the needs of all Zodiac Aerospace business units including C&D Aerospace, Dreissen Aircraft Services, Weber Aircraft, and Monogram Systems. Says Heather Tellez, AHW’s Customer Support Representative for Zodiac Aerospace, “With the increasing demand of panel inserts required to support Zodiac, AHW needs a strong, flexible supplier who is able to keep up with the high volume and react quickly to on-demand changes. TYE is able to support these needs and we are fortunate to have TYE as a vendor.” The panel inserts historically have been a challenging commodity for Zodiac Aerospace, and with AHW and TYE partnering, the supply chain has stabilized and eliminated production line stoppages that were experienced in the past. Additionally, AHW continues to grow its supply chain partners, and TYE is now an integral piece to stocking key components for all its interior customers. Says CEO & President, Frank Ioffrida, “AHW is now considered a full line premier distributor for TYE’s entire product lines supplying all their high-quality products at the most industry competitive price.” For more information on TYE products stocked at AHW, contact us at Sales@AHW-Global.com.
