Ducommun Incorporated today reported that it has received a contract from Boeing to produce ground and flight spoilers for the 737 MAX — Boeing's new family of single-aisle airplanes. Ducommun will produce the spoilers at the Company's Monrovia, Calif. operations with support from its Guaymas, Mexico facility. Ducommun has provided structural solutions for the 737 platform since its inception. Earlier this year, the Company announced it will also support the 737 MAX by producing engine inlet bulkheads and structural titanium assemblies used in the propulsion and thrust reversers.
“With this important win, Ducommun further expands its content on the innovative 737 MAX platform,” said Anthony J. Reardon, chairman and chief executive officer. “We're proud to have been selected, once again, by Boeing for the MAX and look forward to providing broad-based structural solutions for this line of jets, now the fourth generation of the 737 family.”
The Boeing 737 MAX will build on the 737 platform's reliability while delivering the highest fuel efficiency to the single-aisle market. First flight is scheduled for 2016, with deliveries to customers anticipated to begin in 2017. The 737 MAX has already accumulated over 2,200 orders and is expected to have eight percent lower per-seat operating costs than its competition.
