23 September 2005

Composites Atlantic Limited, an EADS Sogerma Services company, has been selected by Boeing to fabricate the advanced composite diagonal brace for the 787 Dreamliner.

Boeing and Composites Atlantic Limited will collaborate together in the integration of this composite primary structure in the pylon-to-wing attachment section of the aircraft.

Composites Atlantic Limited, who are based in Canada and design, develop and fabricates composite components and subassemblies, has received support from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) to help in the development of this advanced composite product. Composites Atlantic’s sales office in Seattle and its engineering office in Montreal have played a major role in the innovations associated with this product.

“This selection is an extraordinary opportunity for Composites Atlantic Limited to supply a primary structure on a revolutionary aircraft like the 787 Dreamliner, said Maurice Guitton, President and CEO of Composites Atlantic Limited. “We are excited to integrate our composite and assembly know-how on such an important component like the diagonal brace,” added Composites Atlantic Limited Vice-Presidents Kevin Steck and Claude Baril.
