Triumph to Provide Boeing 787 Floor Panel System

15 October 2006

Triumph Composite Systems has been awarded a contract by Boeing to provide the composite floor panel system for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner program, the initial award having an estimated value of $49 million.

Richard C. Ill, Triumph’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “This award by Boeing once again demonstrates Triumph’s commitment to delivering product excellence. We are excited by the significant amount of content that we now have on the 787 aircraft and are committed to providing high value solutions to this program.”

In addition to the 787 Floor Panel System, Triumph has recently been selected by Saab Aerostructures to provide the 787 large cargo door actuation system and by Vought Aircraft Industries to supply integrated kits which include composite ducting, machined metal parts and fittings, hydraulic tubing, insulation and other components. Triumph has also been awarded contracts by Spirit Aerosystems for nacelle side skins and mounts, window assemblies and ducting and by Messier Bugati for brake assemblies.

Mr. Ill continued, “With the addition of this contract to our growing participation in the 787 program, the Boeing Dreamliner will become the highest value commercial aircraft program in Triumph’s history.”
