Ducommun receives multiyear contract from Parker Aerospace for electronics on Airbus A350
Ducommun has received a multiyear contract from Parker Aerospace to produce complex printed circuit board assemblies for use in the fuel management system of the Airbus A350 family of commercial aircraft. The award has a potential value in excess of $20m over the contract period, and is expected to begin production in mid-2014. Ducommun also has begun manufacturing printed circuit board assemblies for a retrofit fuel tank inerting system (FTIS) being deployed on various aircraft throughout the Airbus fleet. The FTIS work, which was awarded under a separate contract from Parker Aerospace, is valued at more than $1m through September 2014. Production of the printed circuit board assemblies for both contracts will take place at Ducommun’s Appleton, Wis., facility.
