Heroux-Devtek Inc., a leading international manufacturer of aerospace products, today announced that it has been awarded a long-term contract by The Boeing Company to provide actuator assemblies for the 777 and 777X programs.

Under the terms of the agreement, Heroux-Devtek will manufacture, assemble, test and deliver the landing gear retract actuator for new aircraft production and spare parts requirements. The contract period begins January 2017 and broadens the scope of an existing agreement to include the 777X.
