MilSpec Products of Sorrento, Florida, announced that due to increased demands and a desire to work more closely with kit manufacturers and the end users of its products, the company will be offering its quarter-turn cowling fasteners directly to the public. MilSpec is the original manufacturer of TSO C-148 certified fasteners for the general aviation market and has been a consistent leader in quick release fastening systems.
We are focusing more on the kit airplane market because we feel that general aviation will continue to move in the direction of favoring more streamlined, smaller production companies and individual builders in the coming years, said Jeremy Summers, MilSpec president. We will continue to work closely with our existing dealers in addition to stocking ready-to-ship inventory at the plant, which will be designated for direct-to-consumer sales.
MilSpec offers various model-specific cowling fastener kits as well as individual fasteners, bulk packages and installation tools. Its kit listings include options for the Vans RV series and Lancair models in addition to many common certified designs. The company also expanded its manufacturing capabilities in the last quarter of 2005 to nearly double its previous production rates.For information on the fasteners, kits or technical questions, contact MilSpec at 352/735-0065 or visit http://www.milspecproducts.com.
