ATK awarded composite components contract for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner

ATK was selected by The Boeing Company for a contract, beginning immediately, to produce substructural composite components for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

"This is a great win for ATK that builds on our commitment and proven success of providing affordable innovation and customer satisfaction," said Blake Larson, president of ATK Aerospace Group. "This work scope adds to our long-term relationship of supporting Boeing with composite structures spanning many dynamic products across the commercial aircraft, military aircraft, launch vehicle and satellite industries."

ATK composite structures can be found on the Boeing 767 and 757 airplanes, C-17 Globemaster, F-18 fighter, V-22 Osprey, Boeing 702 and GPS II-F satellites, and Delta II and Delta IV launch vehicles.

"We are honored to have gained Boeing's confidence to build composite substructures for the 787-9 and 787-10 airplanes," said Joy de Lisser, vice president and general manager of ATK's Aerospace Structures division. "Our manufacturing reputation is built on execution excellence, and we look forward to delivering world-class structures to Boeing to meet its increased 787 production rates."

ATK will provide composite substructures for the 787 center fuselage to Boeing at its South Carolina assembly facility and to Alenia for the aft fuselage.
