Triumph Group, Inc. (TGI) and Boeing Commercial Airplanes (BA) have reached an agreement to extend their strategic collaboration on critical system components. Consequently, Triumph will continue as a key supplier of hydraulic components across multiple Boeing programs.
Triumph designs, manufactures, and repairs aerospace and defense systems, components, and structures. One of the three multi-year contract extensions requires Triumph to supply Boeing with landing gear components for the Boeing 787. The manufacturer of aerospace structures will also supply hydraulic locking actuators and transducers for all 787 planes.
Another contract has Triumph’s plant in Clemmons, North Carolina, commencing work on the production of components. For the third contract, its site in Valencia, California, will supply hydraulic accumulators, manifolds, and other parts. The Valencia contract should strengthen Triumph’s business base as commercial aviation continues to pick up. (See Triumph stock analysis on TipRanks)
President of Triumph Actuation Products & Services Scott Ledbetter said, “We are proud to continue our longstanding relationship with Boeing and support their various commercial programs as rates rebound following the pandemic.”
