Curtiss-Wright signs contract with Boeing to provide expanded manufacturing support for 787 Dreamliner

Curtiss-Wright Corporation (NYSE:CW) today announced that it has been selected by The Boeing Company to provide emergent and specialty production support for the final assembly and delivery of the 787 Dreamliner in South Carolina.

"True to Curtiss-Wright's position as a leader in engineered products and services for the aerospace industry, we remain confident that we will perform at the highest level to support Boeing and its 787 global customer base," said Martin R. Benante, CEO and Chairman of Curtiss-Wright Corporation.

This is the latest installment in a 94-year relationship between Curtiss-Wright and Boeing, and advances Curtiss-Wright's position as a leader in complex manufacturing of aerospace structures, components and systems. Under the contract, Curtiss-Wright's Motion Control segment's facility in Shelby, NC, and the Metal Treatment segment of Curtiss-Wright, together will provide emergent and specialty production of components to Boeing's 787 final assembly facility in South Carolina on a 24 hours a day, seven days a week basis.

Curtiss-Wright first delivered products to Boeing in 1917 when Glenn Curtiss provided an engine for the second Boeing production aircraft, the Model 4. Today, Curtiss-Wright delivers an array of proprietary motion control products and metal treatment services to Boeing. In addition to the 787 Dreamliner, Curtiss-Wright also provides products and services for Boeing 737, 747, 767, and 777 airplanes.
