Ducommun Incorporated has reported that it has been awarded its first direct contract from Airbus for the A350 XWB wide-body aircraft.
Ducommun will provide titanium components for titanium assemblies that will be installed on the aft fuselage section of the jet.
The components are already in production at Ducommun’s Coxsackie, N.Y. operations center, which specializes in forming technology for shaping titanium, steel and other hard metals for challenging aerospace requirements.
“This new contract establishes the baseline for Ducommun to continue expanding its support of Airbus in North America” said Anthony J. Reardon, chairman and chief executive officer.
