EDO Reorganized—Its Nav/Com Line Will Be Produced At Texas Plant

Gerald Albert, president of EDO Corporation, College Point, N.Y., has announced a restructuring of its EDO-Aire operations.

The communication and navigation product line, being produced at Fairfield, N.J., will be combined with the auto-pilot product line at the EDO-Aire facility in Mineral Wells, Texas.

This will result in the phasing out of the Fairfield facility and expansion of the facility in Mineral Wells.

This integration, scheduled for completion by year-end, will be accomplished under a planned program designed to satisfy all delivery and support commitments.

Charles S. Davis will be president of the expanded operation at Mineral Wells, with Charles D. Hoefelmann as vice president and assistant to the president. Gerald H. Hoffman has been appointed vice president of marketing and James R. Younkin will continue as vice president of research. The position of EDOAire Group president is being discontinued and, accordingly, Edward Moore, who formerly held that position, is being reassigned to the corporate staff and will continue as vice president and director of the corporation.
