Company Projects $80 Million In Revenue From The Deal
Canadian aviation manufacturer Avcorp has signed a five-year contract extension with Boeing to provide the wheel well for the Next-Generation 737 as well as assemblies and components that support the Next-Generation 737, 747-8, 767, and 777. The contract value is approximately CAD $80 million over five years, commencing in 2013. These parts and assemblies will be manufactured and delivered from Avcorp's Delta, B.C. Canada facility.
"Boeing has been a valued Avcorp customer for 20 years," said Mark Van Rooij. "However, this extension represents a tremendous opportunity for even greater collaboration between our companies and fits perfectly with our continuous improvement and strategic growth plans. By supporting Boeing's unprecedented Next-Generation 737 production rate increases, Avcorp looks forward to strengthening our relationship with Boeing and participation in the success of one of the world's leading commercial airplane manufacturers by creating value in everything we do."
This Boeing contract extension provides a solid base of work for Avcorp over the contract term supporting a significant number of jobs at the plant in British Columbia.
In February, 2012 Avcorp received a 2011 Silver Boeing Performance Excellence Award recognizing suppliers who have achieved superior performance. The company delivers large assemblies direct to the 737 assembly line, as well as bonded structures and sheet metal assemblies that support current and future production rates of Boeing's 737, 747, 767, and 777 commercial aircraft.
