CDI receives long term agreement from Boeing

CDI Corp. (NYSE: CDI) announced today it has entered into a three-year Long Term Agreement (LTA) with The Boeing Company.

With this Long Term Agreement, CDI-Aerospace, a division of CDI Engineering Solutions, will be a supplier of engineering services, capable of providing all Boeing divisions design and analysis engineering support across a wide variety of engineering disciplines.

Part of CDI's performance under the LTA will be done through a new Engineering Design Center in Philadelphia recently created by CDI-Aerospace in partnership with Drexel University. CDI and Boeing engineers will work directly with Drexel engineering students through Drexel's cooperative education program, where students alternate periods of classroom study with periods of full-time, professional employment in positions aligned with their academic interests, to execute projects such as structural designs, software conversions and stress analysis using state-of-the-art CAD and analysis tools.

The Design Center will focus on completing engineering design tasks for key Boeing aerospace programs including the CH-47 military helicopter, the V-22 Osprey vertical take-off and landing aircraft and the Boeing 787 commercial transport aircraft. This unique program provides Boeing with a cost-effective resource for quality engineering design and project execution. CDI-Aerospace plans to create additional Design Centers at strategic locations throughout the US, allowing CDI engineers to pass on their extensive knowledge and expertise to the next generation of Aerospace engineers.

"A critical component of this award from Boeing was a commitment from CDI-Aerospace to create a network of qualified engineering teams composed of seasoned engineers and co-op students enrolled in university-level aerospace engineering programs," said Denny Vito, Executive Vice President of CDI-Aerospace. "As the baby boomer generation of aerospace engineers begins to retire it is essential to develop future generations of skilled professionals to design new aircraft solutions well into the 21st century. That is why over the past two years we worked closely with Philadelphia's Drexel University to develop a co-op student engineering model which we plan to expand to other universities. Since October of 2009 over 40 Drexel engineering students have been teamed with CDI lead engineers and have produced excellent results as they gained training and experience on Boeing technology platforms."
