1. Press Release announcing that TAT Technologies Ltd. had determined not to go forward with the planned relocation of the operations of its Tulsa, Oklahoma based subsidiary Limco Airepair, Inc. (“Limco”) to Kernersville, North Carolina



ITEM 1

TAT Technologies Ltd. had determined not to go forward with the planned
relocation of the operations of its Tulsa, Oklahoma based subsidiary

GEDERA, ISRAEL – (July 28, 2009) – TAT Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: TATTF) (“TAT”) today announced that it had determined not to go forward with the planned relocation of the operations of its Tulsa, Oklahoma based subsidiary Limco Airepair, Inc. (“Limco”) to the location of its Piedmont Aviation Component Services, Inc. subsidiary in Kernersville, North Carolina. The principal reason for this decision was that TAT had received requests from a number of Limco’s significant customers that the operations remain in Tulsa. In addition, unanticipated costs significantly diminished the anticipated savings from the relocation.

About the Company

TAT Technologies Ltd. provides a variety of services and products to the military and commercial aerospace and ground defense industries through its Gedera facility in Israel, as well as through its subsidiaries, Bental Industries Ltd., in Israel and Limco – Piedmont, Inc., in the U.S.

TAT operates under four operational segments: (i) OEM of Heat Transfer products (ii) OEM of Electric Motion Systems (iii) MRO services; and (iv) parts services, each with the following characteristics.

TAT’s activities in the area of OEM of Heat Transfer products primarily relate to the (i) design, development, manufacture and sale of a broad range of heat transfer components (such as heat exchangers, pre-coolers and oil/fuel hydraulic coolers) used in mechanical and electronic systems on-board commercial, military and business aircraft; and (ii) manufacture and sale of environmental control and cooling systems and (iii) a variety of other electronic and mechanical aircraft accessories and systems such as pumps, valves, power systems and turbines.

TAT’s activities in the area of OEM of Electric Motion Systems primarily relate to the design, development, manufacture and sale of a broad range of electrical motor applications for airborne and ground systems. TAT activities in this segment commenced with the acquisition of Bental in August 2008 and accordingly, the results in this segment for fiscal year 2008 are not compared with the previous years.
