Paulo granted Boeing approval for BAC5617 and BAC5619

After receiving requests from many customers, specifically in the Wichita, Kansas area, Paulo's Kansas City Division was able to gain approval from The Boeing Company in less than a year. Starting with a request to Spirit Aerospace in March, Paulo opened a dialogue between Spirit and interested customers. After gathering the available information, Paulo met with Boeing to discuss the specifications and approval process. In October, Boeing conducted a two day audit of the Kansas City facility and issued an approval in December.

The Boeing approval is the latest in a growing list of OEM approvals. And serves as a testament to Paulo's commitment to both quality and customer service. “Paulo strives to meet customer expectations and we're always seeking new approvals.” says Quality Assurance Manager Mark Affolter, “We want to continue our role as a major contributor to the aerospace industry. Obtaining and maintaining elite OEM approvals are keys to serving the industry and our customers.”
