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.
