It’s a totally affordable business relationship with Valley Industries. At Boeing we have many competitions for quality work. Quality is important when you are designing and making fighter aircraft and helicopters. It is really important that you have the best products available that will last a long time and are totally reliable… When aircraft go in for normal maintenance, there are some wing fasteners that are loose, dirty, or somewhat corroded. What we really want to do is use them again, if we can, because we know that they worked in the past. So, we have competed to get people to clean them, and we awarded the contract to Valley because where we normally would get 63% quality work elsewhere. We got over 99% good quality with Valley.
