Extex, the Mesa, Ariz. manufacturer of aftermarket turbine engine parts, has launched a campaign to proclaim its non-involvement with an alleged helicopter parts theft scheme that will land one of the company’s three founders (who left the company in 1999) and two former part-time contractors in court next month. The defendants are facing 38 felony counts relating to the theft and resale of Boeing and MD Helicopter parts. The centerpiece of Extex president Larry Shiembob’s campaign is a September 17 letter from David Eisenberg, assistant U.S. Attorney, stating that neither Shiembob, Extex nor any of its present employees are or have been the subject of any investigation by the FBI.
