An employee at Boeing’s Composite Manufacturing Center (CMC) in Pierce County, WA, fabricates the composite stringers for the 787 vertical fin. Boeing recently helped form the Canadian Composites Manufacturing Research and Development consortium.

The Boeing Co. and Canadian industry partners have launched a new research and development consortium aimed at strengthening Canada's position in the manufacturing of advanced composite materials for aerospace and other industries. The Canadian Composites Manufacturing Research and Development consortium (CCMRD) brings together major aerospace companies and small- to medium-sized enterprises to develop and transform the latest technical and academic knowledge into practical solutions that will enhance Canada's global competitiveness. The CCMRD was formed in cooperation with the Composites Innovation Centre (CIC) in Winnipeg, National Research Council Canada's Institute for Aerospace Research (NRC-IAR) in Ottawa, and Boeing. The CIC is responsible for CCMRD administration, with projects to be carried out at member companies across Canada. NRC-IAR will participate as a technology adviser, providing insight and direction based on its leading-edge knowledge of the composites aerospace industry.
