Orbital ATK has signed an agreement with Airbus to expand its current contract with the OEM to include the manufacture of composite stringers and frames on the A350-1000.

Under the terms of the contract, the aerospace structures division of Orbital’s flight systems group will produce the parts at its facility in Clearfield, Utah.

It expands on the firm’s existing agreement with Airbus to make composite stringers and frames for the A350-900, which Eaton said it has delivered more than 44,000 parts for since the beginning of the programme.
