  • 30-Jun-2008 08:06 EDT

Boeing entered into an agreement with India-based TAL Manufacturing Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Motors, for manufacturing structural components for the 787 Dreamliner program. Under the agreement, TAL will build floor beams for the 787 using new technology with advanced titanium and composite materials. The floor beams will be produced at TAL’s new facility in Nagpur, India, and then transported to Boeing partners in Japan, Italy, and the U.S. for further assembly.
