Limco-Piedmont Inc. Announces Limco-Airepair, Inc. Relocation

TULSA, Okla. , Feb. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Limco-Piedmont Inc. (Nasdaq: LIMC) today announced that it will relocate the operations of its Tulsa, Oklahoma based subsidiary, Limco-Airepair, Inc., to the location of its Piedmont Aviation Component Services, Inc., subsidiary in Kernersville, North Carolina . This decision follows months of study regarding streamlining the Company's operations. Dr. Shmuel Fledel , the Company's Chairman of the Board, commented, "It was determined that the Company could achieve substantial cost savings by consolidating its two MRO operations into one location. Both locations were studied, but the North Carolina location proved to be the most viable." The Company anticipates closing its Tulsa operations by the end of June 2009 which will reduce its workforce by approximately 12%. Based on analysis done to date, the Company expects to achieve annual savings of approximately $500,000 following the completion of the relocation and to recognize approximately $2.4 million in pre-tax costs which will be partially offset by the anticipated sale of the Company's Tulsa building and land and certain other assets.
