26 January 2003

Hitco Carbon Composites has entered into agreements with Boeing to produce large composite tailcone structures for up to 60 more C-17 Globemaster III transport aircrafts for the US armed forces.

This is in addition to the 110 already delivered to Boeing and the 14 units remaining to be built under the first contract. Hitco will produce around 20 units per year beginning in 2004. "Hitco is pleased to continue its participation in the C-17 Globemaster III program," said Paul Pendorf, President of Hitco. "The C-17 is the world's most versatile airlifter."
