CLEARFIELD -- It was a ceremonial gathering in Clearfield Tuesday for aerospace manufacturer ATK.

The company recently forayed into the commercial sector of aerospace manufacturing, to make parts for their A350 airbuses.

It was somewhat of a gamble, but one that clearly paid off, company officials said.

Workers and dignitaries gathered at Clearfield’s ATK Aerospace structures Facility Tuesday to mark the milestone of the company’s 20,000 composite part for the A350 airbus.

The commemorative part will be signed by the plant’s 800 workers and will be displayed in a prominent position on a factory wall.
