Icon Polymer goes global with further major aerospace contract win

Icon Polymer Group, a technology company in engineered polymer products, has landed another major contract win, further strengthening its rapid growth in the global aerospace sector.

The company is to supply custom-designed seals, utilising its material technology, for the trailing edge of the wings on the new Bombardier Global 7000 and Global 8000 business jets. The products will be supplied through Texas-based Triumph Aerostructures-Vought Aircraft Division, a subsidiary of Triumph Group, Inc. and one of the world's leading Tier 1 aerostructures companies.

Icon is already a well-established supplier to Bombardier Inc. supporting both Bombardier Aerospace and 
Bombardier Transportation. Icon supports many Bombardier Aerospace aircraft platforms, including CSeries, CRJ900 NextGen and Challenger 300 aircraft, for which the company manufactures custom aerodynamic and fireproof seals, employing its latest material and process technologies.

Tom Ludwell, Head of Sales of Icon Polymer, commented:

“We are delighted to have been selected for another new platform with Bombardier. Our commitment to work openly with the customer generates exciting and new capability and tackles issues upfront. Listening and understanding the needs of our customers and then delivering them, is why I believe we have been successful on another Bombardier platform.
As a company we continue to apply our strategy of value enhancement, through all aspects of our customer interface and at all stages of the process. Engagement with our customers is exceptional from the very start – questioning, challenging and aligning parties, so that our offering is performance enhacing and cost effective with regards to the specific demands of the customer and the application. “
