Curtiss-Wright extends long-term agreement with Boeing Commercial Airplanes to provide range of motion control products

Curtiss-Wright Corporation (NYSE:CW), through its Motion Control segment, has renewed its long-term agreement with Boeing Commercial Airplanes. The agreement extends the current contract and gives Curtiss-Wright exclusive rights to manufacture numerous products for Boeing production airplanes, including the 737 and 767 trailing edge flap actuators, 747-8 leading edge flap actuators, 777 flap position gearboxes, 767 and 777 cargo door actuators, 747-8, 767 and 777 cargo hold smoke detectors and various flight control and pilot control position sensors.

"Curtiss-Wright is extremely pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with Boeing," said Martin R. Benante, Chairman and CEO of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. "Our business relationship with Boeing began over 90 years ago when Glenn Curtiss delivered an engine for William Boeing's second airplane, the Model 4. Today we are proud to be able to provide products for every Boeing commercial airplane in production."

Curtiss-Wright first delivered flight control actuation components to Boeing that built the foundation of this long-term agreement in the 1960s, starting with trailing edge flap actuators for the 737 platform. Since then, the business has grown to include components on all Boeing commercial aircraft as well as Boeing military aircraft.

The products covered by this long-term agreement are manufactured in Curtiss-Wright

Motion Control facilities located in Shelby, NC, Boca Raton, FL, Irwindale, CA and Stratford, Canada.
