Bombardier awards CSeries contracts to U.K. companies

  • 01-Mar-2010 04:33 EST

Bombardier Aerospace awarded a pair of contracts for work on its CSeries commercial aircraft program. GKN Aerospace will supply the winglet for the CSeries aircraft from its composites center on the Isle of Wight, U.K. The contract could be worth more than $100 million. Cytec Engineered Materials, based in Wrexham, U.K., will supply some of the advanced composite material for the CSeries aircraft wing. This forms part of a wider contract awarded recently by Bombardier to Cytec Engineered Materials valued at up to $800 million to supply carbon-fiber composite materials for a number of Bombardier aircraft programs. Both companies will supply Bombardier in Belfast, U.K., which is responsible for the development, design, and manufacture of the advanced composites wings for the CSeries aircraft.
