Curtiss-Wright Corporation (NYSE: CW) announced today that it has entered into a multi-year agreement valued at over $16 million from Saab Aerostructures to provide the large cargo door mechanical actuation system for the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

"This award is indicative of the innovation and high performance technologies that we supply to the commercial aerospace market," said Martin R. Benante, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Curtiss-Wright. "Working closely with our partner Saab Aerostructures, we were able to provide the most state-of-the-art actuation system for this exciting new Boeing platform."
