Boeing backs its titanium joint venture in the Urals
Wednesday, 17 November 2021
Titanium parts from VSMPO-AVISMA, a Boeing supplier for 25 years, are used on Boeing 737, 767, 787, 777 and 777X aircraft. A new deal seals this trade into the future, and should expand the supplier's role.

VSMPO-AVISMA will remain the largest titanium supplier for current and future Boeing commercial aircraft, following a recent new agreement.

The companies plan to increase utilisation of their Russia-based Ural Boeing Manufacturing (UBM) joint venture, increase R&D investment and continue to develop new titanium alloys and technologies, and explore new opportunities to expand VSMPO-AVISMA's role producing titanium parts and components beyond raw material or forging, for current and future Boeing commercial types.

"The signing of the memorandum strengthens our position as a reliable partner to Boeing for many years to come. For us, it means confidence in our titanium products and recognition of their high quality," says Dmitry Osipov, CEO of VSMPO-AVISMA. "Stable long-term relationships with Boeing enable VSMPO-AVISMA to focus on expanding our investment program and developing our production capacity, as well as to continue implementing ESG-principles in our operations."

"Today we mark another important step in expanding our mutually beneficial cooperation with VSMPO-AVISMA," adds Stan Deal, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "VSMPO-AVISMA has been a reliable and valuable partner to Boeing for almost 25 years."

VSMPO-AVISMA is the largest titanium supplier for Boeing commercial production. Titanium parts from VSMPO-AVISMA are used on Boeing 737, 767, 787, 777 and 777X aircraft.
