Alcoa and Boeing have agreed their largest ever supply contract, valued at $1bn.

The metal manufacturer and airframer have signed a long-term deal for the supply of aluminium sheet and plate products that makes Alcoa the sole supplier for wing skins on all of Boeing’s metallic structure aircraft.

The agreement will also see Alcoa plate products used on every Boeing platform and ensures the firms will continue to work together on new aluminium alloys.

Look out for David Cook’s feature on advanced metals in the next issue of ATE&M.
