Congresswoman Waters Discusses Support for Local Businesses at Moog Aircraft Group Military Aircraft Support Center
LOS ANGELES – As a continuation of her support for businesses in her district, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43) visited Moog Aircraft Group’s Military Aircraft Customer Support Center in Torrance, CA. During the visit, Congresswoman Waters met with members of the center’s more than 500-person workforce — many of whom are residents of the 43rd Congressional District — and discussed her legislative efforts and advocacy for local import-export businesses, aerospace companies, and other industries located within her district.
Moog Aircraft Group was founded in 1951 by William C. Moog Jr., the inventor of the electro-hydraulic servovalve — a device that revolutionized aircraft and missile flight control systems. The company expanded to Torrance in the mid-1990s, and has emerged as a national leader in producing advanced flight controls for commercial and military aircraft.
During the tour, Congresswoman Waters was briefed on the Torrance Support Center’s repair and overhaul services, as well as Moog Aircraft Group’s partnerships with the U. S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which support advancements in critical military systems and safety measures for commercial air transport.
“I am so pleased and proud that a company located in Torrance is making such significant strides, and creating jobs and economic opportunities for the talented men and women of the 43rd Congressional District,” said Congresswoman Maxine Waters. “I applaud Moog Aircraft Group for developing new technologies that enhance the safety of aircraft around the world, and for continuing the great tradition of innovation from companies right here in our community.”
