Long-time Boeing supplier wins new work on 737 and 777 aircraft programs
VANCOUVER—West Coast aerospace manufacturer Avcorp Industries Inc. has won a trio of new contracts with Boeing Co.
A long-time supplier of the U.S. plane maker, the Delta, B.C. company has picked up new work for complex metal bond and multi-material structural assemblies for the 737 and 777 commercial aircraft programs.
“These latest awards expand Avcorp’s manufacturing relationship with Boeing with a timeline that goes well into the future,” Peter George, the company’s CEO, said. “We are very proud to support Boeing on new programs such as the 737 MAX and 777X, and look forward to continued growth providing better solutions to all our customers.”
Under the three new agreements, Avcorp will build spoilers and doors for Boeing’s next-generation 737 MAX, which is expected to take to the skies next year, as well as metal bond panels for the 777X.
The new orders raise the company’s backlog to $579 million.
