Thermal Equipment Corp Receives Order for Large Aerospace Autoclave System

24 January 2009

Spirit AeroSystems has awarded Thermal Equipment Corporation the large Autoclave System contract to be used in the manufacture of structural components for the new Airbus A350 XWB airplane.

“TEC is honored to be part of the Spirit AeroSystems team on this project,” said Lee Courtney, President of Thermal Equipment Corporation (TEC). “This order is yet another example of TEC’s credibility in the supply of very large Aerospace Autoclave Systems, which has become TEC’s specialty. It’s what we do and we do it better than anyone else in our industry.”

The Autoclave ordered by Spirit AeroSystems will have usable dimensions of 22’ in diameter by 80’ long. Due to its extraordinary size and weight, the Autoclave vessel itself will be built on-site at the home of Spirit AeroSystems’ new facility in Kinston, North Carolina.
