“Solar Atmosphere’s has done an outstanding job heat treating the 787 side of body chords. From the initial process development activities, your team’s tireless support processing the production parts in an efficient manner, as well as your own unparalleled personal dedication, Solar Atmosphere’s performance has been impeccable and were vital in our success with the 787. Personally, it has really been one of the best partnerships that I have been involved with during my time at Boeing.

There were a few sleepless nights during the early stages, but we were successful at accomplishing something that had never been done before.
I think we demonstrated the true meaning of working together to our mutual success. Please thank everyone at Solar Atmosphere’s for their efforts. Hopefully we can do this again in the future on the next new airplane.”

Thank you Solar Atmospheres for coming to the rescue and for your continued EKV program support.”
