Hitco Carbon Composites has signed a long term agreement with Alenia Aeronautica to supply the trailing edge components for the Boeing 787 horizontal stabilizer.

Hitco will begin delivering flight hardware in the second quarter of 2008. In addition, Alenia has selected Hitco to supply a range of other composite components for the B 787. These components will be delivered directly to Alenia as well as to other Alenia subcontractors. Boeing Commercial Airplanes contracted Alenia as a Tier I supplier to build the aft fuselage and other sections of the B 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

“”Hitco was selected to produce the Trailing Edge components for the B 787 Horizontal Stabilizer because of its established performance as a Gold Supplier to Boeing – particularly the C 17 and B 767 programs and its approval to Boeing’s Process Specification 5578. The factors above along with HITCO’s ongoing transformation to a state-of-the-art fully automated production facility utilizing lean manufacturing principles, are making our goal of becoming a Best in Class Tier II carbon composites supplier for the aircraft industry a reality,”” said Edward G. Carson, Hitco’s Chief Operating Officer.
