Stork Aerospace selected to manufacture additional electrical wiring package for Boeing 737 airplane
13 April 2006, Fokker Elmo, a Stork Aerospace company of the Netherlands, has reached agreement with US aircraft manufacturer Boeing Commercial Airplanes for the manufacture and supply of a second work package of electrical wiring for the Next-Generation 737 airplane. This package is scheduled to start activities at Fokker Elmo in April 2006, with hardware deliveries scheduled through 2011.
In September 2005, Boeing and Fokker Elmo reached a major breakthrough signing the contract for its first electrical wiring and junction box work package. The program progress and successful work transition on this first work package helped pave the way for this additional work package for Fokker Elmo.
The manufacturing operations for most of both packages will take place at Fokker Elmo’s subsidiary in China.
President of Fokker Elmo, Mr. Jan Lagasse stated: “We are very excited about this follow-on agreement with Boeing Commercial Airplanes and are proud that our successful co-operation in the current program was recognized in Boeing’s decision to expand our working relationship. The extension of this relationship recognizes the dedication and commitment of the entire team of Boeing and Fokker Elmo employees. We are very proud to be part of this very successful Boeing Commercial Airplanes program.”
