Over 200 employees, customers, and partners from business, government and academia joined together to celebrate the Grand Opening celebration of the MTorres America Innovation Center in Everett, WA.


The day was especially exciting and memorable as Mr. Torres presided over the day’s event while being able to witness the reality of his vision launched years ago:  “Planting Roots in the U.S.”  The Grand Opening included several customers including Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Triumph Aerostructures, Safran Landing Gear Systems, and many others.   


The highest honor MTorres could receive is to be acknowledged by its customers.  Mr. Willy Gerry, Vice President, Advanced Manufacturing - Automation and Tooling for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, was a special guest speaker. Over the past 2 years, MTorres and the Boeing team have worked closely to implement important projects for the 777X Wing including the Spar Assembly System, AFP Systems for Stringers and the Stringer Bond Assembly System. Mr. Gerry to not only offered Boeing’s congratulations to MTorres for its team work together with Boeing on the 777X but as well for the importance of the MTorres & Boeing partnership for the future success of both companies.  The partnership is key to both companies’ strategies of driving innovation for enabling, more efficient future manufacturing systems.  


The audience enjoyed special acknowledgements from important MTorres partners who have been instrumental in positioning the company for future success.   One important partner and friend of MTorres who shared in this celebration was The Honorable Luis Fernando, the Spanish Counsel to the U.S.  For over 30 years, Mr. Fernando has been a leading advocate for building cooperation between Spain and the U.S.   His role has been especially important in working with Mr. Torres in creating new relationships with key leaders of the Seattle business community, including Boeing.   It was an extra special day that we could share the celebration with several senior leaders from the Boeing 777X program. 


As each week passes, the vision of Mr. Torres is further realized for the leading role MTorres will play in the U.S. Aerospace and Defense market plance and MTorres customers.
