CCS Composites, a division of YLA, has made its first shipment in a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract with Boeing for hydraulic clamps for the Dreamliner 787 currently in production.

As part of the move to decrease the Dreamliner’s weight the 787 will be primarily made of composite materials. These composite clamps help Boeing achieve their goal.

“Our innovative products go hand-in-hand with the demand for more and more lightweight materials in the aerospace industry,” said Steve Droulard, Manager of Aerospace Business Development of CCS Composites. “We are very excited to be a part of the Dreamliner project, a model of airplane efficiency in every way imaginable.”

After receiving the multi-million dollar order in October 2006, an intense collaborative effort between Boeing’s and CCS’ technical teams ensured the first delivery to Boeing’s international partners in record time in December. CCS has continued to honour commitments to Boeing’s delivery schedule for the last several months. “The production-level delivery timeline for the first ship set was only 10 weeks for a multitude of tools to be engineered from scratch, an extraordinary goal and achievement,” said Samuel Sher, YLA’s Director of Marketing and Business Development. “We are excited to be providing high quality, quick turn products that contribute to the technical achievements of the Dreamliner program.”
