Kaman awarded long term agreement by Boeing for KC-46A Tanker fixed trailing edge kits

Kaman Corporation announced today that its Aerosystems division (Kaman) has been awarded a multi-year contract for the production of the fixed trailing edge (FTE) kits and assemblies for the Boeing KC-46A Tanker Program.

“Kaman has worked with Boeing to develop a more monolithic design over the base 767 aircraft for the tanker. The KC-46A Tanker FTE kit award exemplifies Kaman's capabilities and Boeing's continued confidence in us,” stated Greg Steiner, President of Kaman Aerospace Group.

Kaman delivered its first KC-46A Tanker FTE kit to Boeing in March 2014. To date Kaman has provided more than 1,000 FTE kits and assemblies for the 767 program since 1986.

Kaman is a leading supplier of integrated structures, including metallic and composite structural assemblies and detail metallic parts, for OEM and Tier I aerospace companies engaged in commercial and military aircraft programs. Kaman provides complete aero-structure solutions including design, tooling, manufacturing, testing, and product support.
