American embassy visits Superior Tube and Fine Tubes at ILA Berlin

U.S.-based Superior Tube and U.K.-based Fine Tubes, both leading manufacturers and global suppliers of high-precision tubes for aerospace applications were honoured by a visit from representatives of the American embassy in Berlin to their stand at this year's ILA Berlin Air Show. During the visit, US officials were introduced to the companies' specialty portfolio of high-strength tubing solutions, innovations and current projects in the aerospace industry.

Paul A. Tombarge, a U.S. Air Force colonel and the Embassy's Chief of the Office of Defense Cooperation and Kent Logson, Deputy Chief of Mission, were shown how both businesses help aerospace companies worldwide solve technical challenges, using high-performance titanium, stainless steel and nickel alloy tubing.

Mike Cullum, Sales Manager, said: "The ILA Berlin Air Show is an important event in our calendar. It helps us get our products and ideas in front of some of the most influential decision makers in the aviation industry. This year, however, our esteemed guests from the American embassy made the show even more special, as we were able to show their representatives our quality tubing solutions."

More than 120,000 trade visitors from every segment of the aviation industry come to the event every other year. This year it took place from 1 to 4 June at the Berlin ExpoCenter Airport in Berlin.
