Druck announces MoU's with Chinese OEM customers for new aircraft programs at the 12th China International Aviation & Aerospace Exhibition
Thursday, 22 November 2018

GE's Druck business is proud to announce the signing of two significant MoU's (memorandums of understanding) with two major Chinese customers, XBC and FACRI – both part of the AVIC conglomerate.

The signing ceremonies were conducted at the China International Aviation & Aerospace Exhibition in Zhuhai, China on Wednesday 7th November 2018 and were attended by dignitaries from both customers and the Druck business.

The first MoU was agreed with XBC and concerns the supply of Aerospace qualified pressure sensors for a new development program for the braking systems that they will provide for the MA700 aircraft. The second MoU relates to Druck's supply of aerospace qualified pressure sensors for FACRI's hydraulic systems, which will be used on the C919 aircraft – the world's first Chinese-produced commercial aircraft program.

Druck Aerospace Business Leader - Justin Wand said

"These two program awards will be cornerstones for our future long-term growth as aircraft production increases in the region. The awards are the result of a concerted and well-coordinated team effort from the product line team in the UK and the regional team in China. Our close collaboration as one global Druck team and strong relationships with our customers were key in winning business on these important aircraft programs. I would like to place on record my thanks to everyone who has contributed to these significant wins for our business."

Measurement & Sensing Chief Technology Officer - Gordon Docherty said

"This is a significant milestone for Druck and once again the robust technology has enabled us to win in the Aerospace market. Winning share in the Chinese Aerospace market is an investment for the future of the Druck business. Our partnerships with key customers such as XBC, FACRI and COMAC will provide long term sustainable revenues for our business."
