Becker Avionics announced in December 2010 that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has granted the production certification to manufacture the Airborne Digital Audio and Intercom System, the Digital Voice Communication System (DVCS) 6100, at its U.S. subsidiary, in Miramar, Florida.
Becker Avionics is pleased to announce that they have received FAA production certification to manufacture their Airborne Digital Audio and Intercom System in the US.
“With certification and production authority in hand, Becker Avionics will begin manufacturing the DVCS6100 system in the U.S. immediately” said Roland Becker, President and CEO of the Becker Avionics Group.
He continued "The decision for establishing a U.S. production line was taken in 2009. This step is of great importance to the Becker Avionics Group, as we strengthen our presence in the U.S.. We are committed long-term to enhancing our U.S. presence as well as serving the North and South American aviation markets more closely. Over the past 2 years we have focused on penetrating the U.S. market, and it is critical for us that we remain competitive in the biggest aviation market in the world."
Arturo Garcia, Production Manager added "Our staff worked hard over the past 18 months to build-up the production capability. This included excessive overseas training, facility modification, inventory build-up and establishing the required FAA documentation and manuals to receive the FAA production certificate. The local production capability will further strengthen our U.S. employee base, support maintaining our competitive edge, and will bring significant economic activity to Becker Avionics, Inc.”
