New Breed Logistics to provide expanded logistics support for Boeing 787 Dreamliner in Charleston, SC

New Breed Logistics, Inc., headquartered in High Point, North Carolina, has announced that they have been selected by The Boeing Company to provide logistics support in Charleston, South Carolina for the manufacture and final assembly of the 787 Dreamliner. This agreement represents continued growth of the relationship between New Breed and The Boeing Company and is the largest single contract between the two companies.

New Breed provides support for many other Boeing airplane programs, and was selected in 2006 to provide logistical support for 787 final assembly and delivery at Boeing's manufacturing campus in Everett, Washington. New Breed also recently established itself as a South Carolina Limited Liability Company.

Under the contract announced today, New Breed will receive, store, provide inventory control, kit, package, distribute, and transport 787 parts, tools, and supplies to designated locations within Boeing's North Charleston assembly facility. Louis DeJoy, New Breed's Chairman & CEO commented, "We are focused every day on providing superior solutions and excellent execution for Boeing. This type of growth and expansion with Boeing is the proof that our efforts have truly made a difference for them and provides further incentive for us to keep raising the bar."

New Breed's Boeing South Carolina support operations will be housed in a New Breed facility located in the Charleston area. Staffing plans for the facility will be finalized over the next few months.

New Breed currently supports several of Boeing's commercial and defense aviation programs. In addition to the 787 Dreamliner, New Breed operates the Boeing Commercial Airplanes spare parts program for eastern North America, and South and Central Americas; the F/A-18 Integrated Readiness Support Teaming, or FIRST, program; and, spares programs for the H-46 rotorcraft, the Harrier Integrated Supply Support (HISS) program, Japanese and Italian KC-767 tankers, Korean F-15s, the C-17 and the F-22. Additionally, the company provides parts kitting and line-side delivery services for new-build military rotorcraft programs at Boeing's Ridley Park, PA manufacturing site that include the Chinook and V-22 Osprey.

New Breed has received the prestigious Boeing Performance Excellence Award (BPEA) in each of the last four consecutive years. The Boeing Company issues the BPEA annually to recognize suppliers who have achieved superior performance.
