Alcoa Signs Fourth Boeing Components Contract

Metals manufacturer Alcoa has signed a long-term agreement with Boeing to supply the OEM with components for its 737MAX, 777X and 787 aircraft.

Under the terms of the contract, Alcoa’s fourth with Boeing, it will supply parts including the wing, fuselage, and landing gear.

Alcoa chairman and CEO Klaus Kleinfeld said the new contract was enabled by the firm’s recent investments, including its acquisition of Firth Rixson and the creation of a new aluminum-lithium facility in Lafayette, Indiana.

The components deal adds to three existing contracts Alcoa has with Boeing, including the supply of fastening systems, titanium seat-track assemblies and wing skins.
