GKN Aerospace secured a long term deal with Boeing for the supply of titanium and aluminium machined parts and sub-assemblies for the 767, 777, 787 and 777X aircraft.
Parts supplied will include 787 titanium wing fittings as well as horizontal stabilizer spars and jack screw assembly, and drag struts for the 777 and 777X.
GKN Aerospace has been manufacturing items covered by the existing agreement for over ten years.
“This new commitment, through these extended contract agreements, will allow us to plan ahead effectively, assuring continuity of supply and enabling us to implement process improvements and achieve cost reductions as aircraft production rates continue to ramp up,” – said Mike Grunza, Chief Executive Officer of GKN Aerospace North America.
