FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Dec. 6, 2010: Coastal's Management Team recently traveled to Ottawa, Canada to accept a "Supplier Recognition Award of Excellence". NAV CANADA, a private corporation that owns and operates Canada's civil air navigation system, issued the award. Coastal was 1 of 9 award recipients selected from over 10,000 NC suppliers.
In 2005, NAV CANADA hired Coastal to manufacture and install a network of 85 Aviation Weather Observing Systems (AWOS) at airfields all over Canada. To date, Coastal has installed over 40 of them. This network of AWOS has performed near flawlessly, earning great respect from the aviation community.
As a world leader in enabling safe, efficient air travel, NAV CANADA holds its suppliers to rigorous standards, so Coastal feels extremely honored. In NAV CANADA's formal supplier evaluation, Coastal had outstanding performance in areas of responsiveness, quality, ease of use, reliability, technology and proficiency/skill set.
Michael Baron, Coastal's president, said "We (Coastal) are immensely flattered to have received this award and would like to thank NAV CANADA for recognizing the hard work, development, and planning that was put into our AWOS product."
