On Sunday March 28, 2010, Fabri Cote's close ties with our community were evidenced by allowing 4 battalions of firefighters to perform training at our manufacturing facility. The training was attended by over 80 firefighters. The uninterrupted day long training allowed the firefighters to familiarize themselves with the chemicals used at Fabri Cote as well as the coating operations involved in the process. The City of Los Angeles recognized Fabri Cote for their involvement with the community by presenting the company with a Certificate of Commendation.
On December 3, 2009, United Space Alliance visited Fabri Cote to present us with a Supplier Appreciation Award.  The award was in recognition of Fabri Cote’s ability to quickly and cost effectively design and manufacture two new mission critical coated fabrics for the Space Shuttle program.  One of the items was a viton coated fiberglass for the cargo bay area of the Shuttle.  The second item was a special silicone coated fiberglass used for insulation near the Shuttle’s main thrusters.  The entire staff of Fabri Cote was in attendance to accept the award.  Dick Covey, a 4 time Shuttle astronaut and CEO of USA, presented the award.  Also in attendance were 3 other representatives from USA as well as two Boeing representatives who had originally recommended Fabri Cote to USA for their coated fabric requirements.

 
On May 7, 2009, Fabri Cote’s continual close working relationship with Boeing resulted in an update to the DMS 1953 specification to revision G.  Agreeing to Fabri Cote’s recommendations of simplifying the testing requirements, Boeing updated the DMS 1953 specification.  This update allowed Fabri Cote to perform the necessary production testing in house instead of using an outside test lab.  Fabri Cote does not charge for these types of tests performed in house thus saving Boeing and other customers $1,500 per lot for test charges.  This tremendous cost savings was passed along to Boeing and our other customers of the DMS 1953 specification.
