Fuji Heavy Industries is to begin constructing a new manufacturing plant for adhesive composite materials for aircrafts in Handa, Japan.

The new facility will produce parts for the centre-wing section that connects the main wings and the fuselage of Boeing’s next-generation 7E7 aircraft. Moreover, it will manufacture parts for patrol aircrafts and air carriers for the Japanese Defence Agency.

The state-of-the-art plant will have a floor space of about 7,500m2, and be equipped with the world’s biggest autoclaves and non-destructive inspection equipment. FHI plans to invest more than 5 billion yen ($4.9 mil) in the project. The plant is slated for operation in 2006.
