EVERETT -- When Aviation Technical Services agreed to lease one of its hangars at Paine Field to the Boeing Co., the company could have moved the components portion of the business almost anywhere.

But that's not what the aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul company did."We decided there was not much of a choice," said Matt Yerbic, ATS president.

"We knew we had to keep it here in Everett," because of the talent pool and the proximity of customers and other suppliers.

Yerbic spoke Thursday at the ATS Components division's new location, just off Airport Road and a couple of miles from the company's main overhaul buildings at the south end of the airport. ATS moved components work late last year into the newly renovated 70,000-square foot facility at 2600 W. Casino Road in Everett. The company and local government and industry leaders gathered Thursday to mark ATS' decision to remain in the area.
