Trans-Pacific Aerospace Company, Inc. Provides Update On Progress In China

Trans-Pacific Aerospace Company, Inc. (OTCBB: TPAC.OB) CEO Bill McKay, who is currently in China, today reported on progress for U.S. Navy qualification testing.

“We’ve started production on more than 1,000 bearings to be submitted for qualification,” said McKay from Godfrey (China) Limited, the company’s 25%-owned subsidiary, “and I’m so glad that we’ve done this so many times before.” The Trans-Pacific Aerospace manufacturing and quality control team, in China from the U.S., has successfully qualified over 3,000 different types of bearings for both SAE and FAA commercial aircraft approval.

McKay commented: “The nuances in making these parts in China, while subtle, require a great deal of focus. The logistics of getting raw materials in from the States, buying and shipping machinery from the far reaches of China, and then making sure that the machinery performs to the same accuracy that we’re used to could have been an Excedrin headache. Everything has come together, though, and I am particularly pleased that the machinery and equipment we’ve purchased far surpasses our expectations, so much so that we plan to acquire finishing machinery here for specialized post-assembly work that we had previously planned to do in the U.S.”

Trans-Pacific Aerospace is currently in the process of qualifying Godfrey’s Guangzhou China manufacturing facility and is producing test parts which will be subsequently submitted to the U.S. Navy for certification. Subject to U.S. Navy certification, Godfrey expects to commence manufacturing its self-lubricating spherical bearings in the third quarter of 2011.

“We're really excited about the way things have been going here and in my view it’s a testament to the contributions and hard work made by our team both here in China and in the States, including Greg Archer, Dave Brandon, Kevin Gould, Alex Kam, Ray Kwong, Rod LaMay, Andy Lerma, Peter Liu and Nick Nguyen. Their insight, dedication, experience and commitment exemplify teamwork, which we believe will lead to the success of Godfrey Guangzhou and TPAC.”
