WEST WARWICK, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AstroNova, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALOT), a leading manufacturer and supplier of aerospace products including printers, networking hardware and related accessories to commercial, business and military customers, has announced that The Boeing Company has selected the ToughWriter® 640 flight deck printer to be included in Boeing’s B737NG and B737 MAX catalog.
“Boeing’s choice of the ToughWriter 640 for the 737 Next Generation and the 737 MAX underscores our strong relationship with the world’s largest aerospace company,” said AstroNova President and CEO Gregory A. Woods. “We are gratified by Boeing’s confidence in our products and service and look forward to continuing this successful alliance for years to come.”
The ToughWriter 640 40-column printer complements AstroNova’s ToughWriter 5 80-column printer, which was added to the Boeing catalog in 2016.
