Avcorp lands Boeing contract
Tilbury-based Avcorp Industries has landed another contract with aerospace giant Boeing.
Avcorp will be responsible for the production and supply of tunnel cover assemblies for Boeing’s CH-47 Chinook Helicopters, a component that acts as an access cover to the driveshaft which runs between the two main rotors of the aircraft.
This is not Avcorp’s first contract with Boeing. Last year it signed an $80 million contract extension to provide wheel wells fairings for the Next Generation 737. It has also manufactured and supplied Boeing with wing tip panels for the 737, and CH-47 Chinook Helicopter cockpit nose enclosures.
“This new contract underscores the importance of our long-standing partnership, which continues to support highly-skilled aerospace jobs within Canada,” Mark van Rooij, president and CEO of Avcorp, said in a media release earlier this month. “We are proud that our partnership with Boeing continues to provide us with opportunities to contribute to a key platform.”
When asked the value and duration of the contract, and how many jobs it creates or maintains, van Rooij said he was not in a position to provide more details at this time.
