Piper Aircraft Services – Manufacturing has received a contract for approximately $90,000 in machined parts from Triton Submarines LLC, also of Vero Beach. The contract calls for complex multi-axis machined parts destined for Triton’s submersibles.

 

Piper President and CEO Simon Caldecott said, “We are very pleased that Triton Submarines chose Piper for this important manufacturing support work. Triton’s rigorous design goals and manufacturing standards are consistent with Piper’s precision manufacturing processes. This is a perfect example of the kind of work that Piper Aircraft Services can accomplish.”

Triton CEO L. Bruce Jones said, “As a fixed wing, helicopter and ultra light pilot, I know that Piper has an excellent reputation throughout the industry for manufacturing quality and safe products.
