TenCate forms long-term supply agreement with Boeing

  • 13-May-2010 08:54 EDT

The TenCate Advanced Composites Group in Morgan Hill, CA, reached a long-term supply agreement with The Boeing Co. This five-year contract extension culminates a multiyear initial design and build effort on compression-molded hydraulic and fuel line clamp assemblies for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Besides these components, TenCate also delivers composite materials for other applications, including TenCate Cetex for the Boeing 787. The hydraulic and fuel line assemblies will be supplied directly to Boeing and other Tier 1 subcontractors. The thermoset clamp assemblies are used to secure hydraulic and fuel lines running through the wing.
