RTI International Metals, Inc. chosen for expanded Boeing 787 seat track manufacturing, machining & assembly

RTI International Metals, Inc., announced today that it was chosen by The Boeing Company to manage and perform expanded titanium parts manufacturing, machining and assembly activities related to the Boeing 787 Dreamliner airplane seat track system.

Under the agreement, RTI's Engineered Products and Services Segment will perform sub-assembly activities to prepare RTI-manufactured center fuselage seat track system components for final airplane installation as well as manufacture additional parts required in the sub-assembly. Final machining and sub-assembly operations will be performed and managed at RTI Claro in Laval, Quebec, Canada. Additional titanium parts called for under the agreement will be sourced through RTI's Titanium Segment using titanium mill product produced in Ohio, with extrusion work to be completed at RTI Extrusions in Houston, TX.

“RTI's selection by Boeing to perform expanded work across our integrated supply chain for the 787 seat track system demonstrates confidence in RTI's ability to perform as well as the enhanced value we provide through our vertically integrated supply chain capabilities,” Christian Sauvé, Vice President & General Manager, RTI Claro said. “In addition, this new agreement with Boeing highlights opportunities that can be realized through RTI's strong, strategic level customer relationships. We look forward to successfully executing this additional work package and to exploring additional opportunities to further expand our partnering relationship.”
