Ducommun receives first contract for Airbus A321

Ducommun Incorporated today announced it has signed a long-term agreement with Alenia Aermacchi, a unit of Italy's Finmeccanica Group, to produce various fuselage skins for the Airbus A321 commercial aircraft. The first award under this agreement runs through 2016. Ducommun AeroStructures is manufacturing the aluminum fuselage skins at its Gardena, Calif. and Orange, Calif. facilities, which specialize in the assembly, forming, machining and chemical milling of large aircraft structures.

"The A321 is a new platform for Ducommun, and this long-term agreement significantly expands our partnership with Alenia Aermacchi,” said Anthony J. Reardon, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “As our first major contract for an Airbus single-aisle aircraft, this is a great opportunity for us to showcase our technology and production expertise as we look to expand sales across the A320 family. We look forward to working with Alenia Aermacchi and strengthening our relationship with Airbus for many years to come.”
