Products of PIA Precision Engineering Complex (PEC) included aircraft meal carts.

Is it still manufacturing meals carts for aircraft in current fleet of PIA like B777, A320 and ATR?

Are they so complicated things that they cannot be manufactured in Pakistan? I am sure any medium sized fabrication company can do it

Weren't these manufactured at the PIA Precision or PIA Engineering Complex sometime back. Abbas had once posted some photos as well.
