About Us

Established in 1963 by “Cy” and Miki Young, The YOUNG ENGINEERS, Inc. (TYE) has over fifty years’ experience in the design and manufacturer of aircraft and aerospace hardware, with a primary focus on fasteners for honeycomb panels and composite materials, typically utilized in aircraft/rotorcraft interiors, along with space applications.

The company’s extensive product range consists of various industry-standard and proprietary potted-in, mechanically attached, floating nut and floor panel fasteners, along with rivet inserts, tensile fasteners and installation tooling. We continuously work with OEM’s around the world on the development and refinement of aircraft fasteners. In recent decades, TYE has introduced several new product lines, including ultralight metallic inserts, high-strength plastic inserts, magnetic fasteners, vibration dampening fasteners, as well as a highly customizable line of cabin interior latches.

The Company also believes in giving back to the aerospace fastener community. Members of management have been technical advisors and/or sat on the board of various national and international fastener organizations for decades. TYE has worked with the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and other government agencies, along with the private sector, on the writing of standards, papers and procedures designed to ensure that aerospace fasteners are manufactured, inspected and distributed to exacting standards.

Although TYE uses a vast network of aerospace distributors, we are also a stocking manufacturer, typically maintaining inventory on several thousand line items. All of our products are manufactured within the United States of America to the most stringent national and international standards.
