"To support the aircraft and operators, we will leverage our best-in-class customer service network of engineers and facilities," said Matthew Bromberg, Hamilton Sundstrand Customer Service vice president and general manager. "In addition, Dennis and his team are dedicating experts and equipment to the 787 program. Our No. 1 priority is to achieve the product performance and reliability expectations of our customers."
