The company designed, manufactured, and sold aircraft engine fuel-control parts to both civilian and military aircraft manufacturers. The companys parts were used in historical aircraft, such as Cyclone engines used by both the United States Navy in their DC-3s. Howard Hughes operated the Super Electra Lockheed 14 during his historic trip around the globe, which contained CECO fuel/carburetor controls. CECO engine parts were also used by the US Army in C-47s and B-25 attack bombers. The company is now known as Triumph Engine Control Systems.
