“Our goal is to manufacture 100% functioning products with no issues, every time,” said Nishan Bostanian. “EDN’s main strength is building long-term relationships with our customers. We never charge for non-recuring engineering costs (NRE).”

Early in his career, Nishan became an aircraft maintenance engineer in Perth, Scotland, which led to his role as lead repairman with Ryder Aviall in Burbank, CA, maintaining Pratt & Whitney JT8D engines. Joining EDN as Main Lead in charge of engraving panels, Nishan advanced to Shop Manager. He has since been Facility Manager and Quality Director for 25 years.

Under his guidance in 2016, EDN became one of the few aviation companies listed on the QPL. Nishan was promoted to General Manager in 2017. He is fluent in four languages.

As GM and main salesperson, Nishan is EDN’s fabrication expert in charge of producing new, refurbished, and replacement cockpit panels for airlines and defense contractors worldwide. A hands-on GM, Nishan brings his craftsman’s passion for design and functionality to every customer meeting. An example of collaboration with an aircraft manufacturer is the design and production of custom EXIT signs that illuminate underwater for 25 minutes without an external power source.

“We have an agile workforce and thrive on meeting deadlines if they are humanly possible. We also fully support all AOG situations that come to us,” Nishan concluded.
