Air Industries Group and Meyer Tool Co. to Co-Locate in Poland

HAUPPAUGE, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 13, 2016) -  Air Industries Group (NYSE MKT: AIRI)

Air Industries Group (NYSE MKT: AIRI) ("Air Industries" or the "Company"), announced today that Air Industries and Meyer Tool have signed a strategic agreement to co-locate Air Industries welding capabilities into Meyer's Kalisz, Poland facility.

Air Industries will establish new TIG welding and EB welding cells at the site, allowing the Meyer/Air team to provide turnkey products to major turbine engine customers in the European market. By combining Meyer's EDM, water-jet and grinding capabilities with AMK's welding expertise, the facility will be a "one-stop shop" that is in close proximity to our major customers. Performing all of the critical operations under one roof will reduce both cost and lead time to our customers.

Air Industries Group's President and CEO, Dan Godin, commented, "I am excited by the opportunity to collaborate with Meyer Tool, who is recognized as a world-class manufacturing company, and a trusted partner. By combining our skills and resources in a state-of-the-art facility, we dramatically increase the value added services that we can provide, which obviously helps both Air and Meyer. We see this as the first step in what we expect to be a long and successful collaboration with Meyer Tool."

Construction of the facility has begun, and product manufacturing is slated to commence in July 2016.
