Curtiss-Wright awarded contract by Parker Hannifin to supply aft strut fairing hydraulic module for Boeing 787

Curtiss-Wright Corporation (NYSE:CW) today announced that it has been awarded a contract by Parker Hannifin for structural development, assembly and test of the aft strut fairing hydraulic module for use on the Boeing 787 airplane. The contract extends an existing agreement for the manufacture of this product through the end of 2021. The combined value of the contract and prior agreements over the lifetime of the platform is estimated to be approximately $112 million.

"Curtiss-Wright is very pleased to extend our agreement with Parker Hannifin to provide further production support for the Boeing 787," said Martin R. Benante, Chairman and CEO of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. "Our expanded manufacturing integration services will help deliver the greater efficiencies needed for manufacturing next-generation aircraft."

The aft strut fairing hydraulic module is a preassembled package of hydraulic system components that comprise a proprietary structural frame developed by Curtiss-Wright and hydraulic system components developed by Parker Hannifin. Production of the aft strut fairing hydraulic module represents the addition of a new integration capability to Curtiss-Wright's broad range of products and services.

Under the contract, Curtiss-Wright will perform the structural development of the aft strut fairing hydraulic module at its Motion Control facility in Shelby, NC. Parker Hannifin, the system integrator and contract holder for the Boeing 787 aircraft, will provide the hydraulic system equipment, including reservoirs, accumulators and filtration equipment manufactured at its Hydraulic Systems Division, Kalamazoo, MI, and fluid conveyance equipment manufactured at its Stratoflex Division, Fort Worth, TX for assembly onto the aft strut fairing hydraulic module structure at Curtiss-Wright.

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.
