Constellium N.V. announced today that the company has been awarded a multi-year agreement with The Boeing Company to support all of The Boeing Company's leading commercial airplane programs. With this agreement, Constellium will increase both the scope and range of products it supplies.

Under the new agreement, Constellium will supply The Boeing Company aluminium products for airframes utilizing Constellium's current and advanced-generation aluminium alloys. The contract notably includes the continued supply of AIRWARE®, Constellium's low-density Aluminium-Lithium solution, for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner airplane. The products will be supplied from Constellium's two major Aerospace and Transportation manufacturing sites in Ravenswood, WV and in Issoire, France. In the context of unprecedented aircraft production rates forecasted for the next 5 years, these plants provide a combination of capabilities to secure The Boeing Company's requirements.

"This agreement further strengthens the solid partnership that Constellium and Boeing have built over the past 25 years," explained Pierre Vareille, CEO of Constellium. "We look forward to increasing our collaborative efforts to drive value for Boeing and to address the economic and technical challenges of future programs".

A global leader for aerospace aluminium plate production, Constellium produces advanced alloys and cutting–edge technological solutions. Its technology portfolio, which includes AIRWARE®, illustrates its capacity to leverage the potential of aluminium solutions for the aerospace industry.
