GKN Aerospace and Boeing extend wiring systems agreement

Posted 16 July 2018 · Add Comment

GKN Fokker Elmo and Boeing have agreed to a contract extension, to supply wiring for three of Boeing’s airplane families.



GKN Fokker Elmo has supplied electrical wiring and interconnection systems (EWIS) to Boeing airplanes for more than a decade for the 777, 737 and P8A and that contract was extended at the Farnborough International Air Show today.

The contract extension is confirmation of GKN Fokker Elmo’s position as a strategic EWIS supplier to Boeing.

“We are delighted to be part of these successful aircraft programs, and to continue our long term and successful relationship with Boeing. The extension is a true reflection of Boeing’s continued confidence in GKN Fokker Elmo as a quality, well placed, strategic supplier, and a true reflection of the dedication and hard work of the teams,” said John Pritchard, CEO Aerostructures and Systems Europe and Asia, GKN Aerospace.

The manufacturing activities through the contract extension will see the continued production of the 737, 777 and P8A programs supported by the teams in the Netherlands, Turkey, China, and establishing production work within the new India facility.
