Boeing has awarded Triumph Interiors a long-term contract to manufacture air distribution system composite ducting and composite cockpit assemblies for the 777X aircraft. The deal also sees the company provide thermal-acoustic primary insulation systems for the 737 MAX, 767 Freighter, and 777 models, as well as the KC-46 multi-role tanker and P-8 Poseidon defence platforms.
According to Triumph Interiors this contract represents “a substantial portion” of its business sales over the long term and materially increases its backlog. Triumph Interiors has supplied Boeing with products and services for 30 years and gained consistently high supplier ratings. This award follows Triumph’s multi-year restructuring of its aircraft interiors business and reflects its commitment to secure long-term contracts in partnership with leading OEMs.
“Our company’s dedication to innovation and lean transformation enables us to provide superior value to Boeing on new and ramping platforms,” said Dan Crowley, chairman, president and CEO of parent company, Triumph Group.
“Securing this significant order will enable Triumph Interiors to advance strategic affordability and efficiency initiatives and provides a solid foundation against which we can pursue other new business opportunities,” added Ian Reason, president of Triumph Interiors.
