Arnprior Aerospace wins two major contracts from Boeing
Arnprior Aerospace has won two major contracts from Boeing Corporation to provide parts for a much-heralded new commercial aircraft.
Arnprior Aerospace, formerly a Boeing plant and a supplier for the American-based multi-national corporation since 2005, will build parts supporting the rudder and elevator for the new 777X, being touted as the world’s largest and most efficient twin-engine commercial airplane.
“These new contracts for Arnprior Aerospace to support the 777X, our newest airplane program, reflect Boeing’s confidence in Arnprior’s performance and competitiveness,” said Kent Fisher, Boeing Commercial Airplanes’ vice-president and general manager of supplier management in an interview with Canadian media.
“We are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with Boeing with the addition of new work on Boeing airplane programs,” said Arnprior Aerospace president Tom Melvin. “Together, we are committed to further developing the aerospace industry in Canada, and this new work on the 777X keeps us connected to Boeing’s future growth and development.”
Arnprior Aerospace has more than 50 years of experience in the design, production and support of structural components for aerospace and defence applications.
Established in l954, Arnprior Aerospace became part of the Boeing Company in l960 until its divestiture in 2005. Today, Arnprior Aerospace is an independent business, wholly owned by American Industrial Acquisition Corporation (AIAC), a privately held industrial group.
A key factor in enabling the company to meet stringent customer requirements is its extensive in-house manufacturing capability. Arnprior Aerospace combines product design and program management skills with sheet metal fabrication, precision machining, complex assembly, integration solutions, heat treatment, chemical processing and paint application.
Arnprior Aerospace has facilities in Chihuahua, Mexico; Portland, Oregon; and Montreal, Quebec.
