Concurrently, the existing supply and material procurement agreements among BHA, Hexcel and Boeing are affirmed and reflect continued long-term work commitments by Boeing that will ensure Hexcel assembly of BHA components for Boeing as well as the supply of Hexcel materials to BHA.

David E. Berges, Chairman and CEO of Hexcel, said, ""We are proud of the work the Hexcel team did to help build BHA into a world class operation, and we are excited about the opportunities for Hexcel as Boeing further expands BHA's operations. The continuation of our long term supply agreement with Boeing and BHA will ensure an important revenue base and low cost component supply for our Engineered Products group well into the future. Additionally, we will continue to benefit from our long term agreement to supply materials to BHA.""
