Boeing Selects GKN For MAX AT Winglet

Boeing has selected GKN to manufacture the Advanced Technology (AT) winglet for the 737 MAX. Production of the winglets will take place at GKN’s facility at Crowes, Isle of Wight, UK, with final assembly completed at GKN's site in Orangeburg, South Carolina. “We announced our first winglet contracts for Boeing aircraft in 2007 and this award reflects the on-going success of our growing relationship,” said Marcus Bryson, CEO, GKN Aerospace and Land Systems. “It also draws on our expertise in the efficient manufacture of complex composite and metallic wing structures and makes full use of our ability to assemble this advanced structure.”
