B.C.’s Avcorp Industries wins Boeing production contract
Company to supply panoramic camera fairings for aircraft maker's 767-2C
VANCOUVER—Avcorp Industries Inc. has been awarded a contract to produce and supply the Boeing Co. with panoramic camera fairings for its 767-2C, which is part of the KC-46 tanker program.
“This new contract underscores the importance of our longstanding supply partnership with Boeing,” Peter George, Avcorp Industries’ CEO, said. “We are proud that our supply partnership with Boeing continues to provide us with opportunities to contribute on yet another key platform with Boeing.”
The Delta, B.C.-based company said each shipset of panoramic camera fairings consist of large and complex composites and metallic components that will be assembled into a fully-integrated assembly are Avcorp’s facility. The fairings will then be attached directly to the plane’s fuselage at Boeing’s final assembly line in Everett, Washington.
Avcorp, which employs more than 388 employees across its 340,000 square-foot facility has been manufacturing and supplying Boeing with various aircraft components, including 737 wheel well fairings, 737 wing tip panels, metal bond partition panels for various Boeing aircraft and CH47 Chinook Helicopter cockpit nose enclosure assemblies and tunnel covers, for more than 20 years.
