Collins Aerospace extends contract with FACC

Collins Aerospace Systems has awarded FACC a multi-year contract extension covering the supply of thrust reverser translating sleeves for nacelles on the Airbus A350 XWB and Boeing 787 aircraft.

The contract entails delivery of these nacelle components into the next decade. This contract extension is a major contribution to strengthening the market position of FACC as an international partner in the engines & nacelles segment.

Robert Machtlinger, FACC CEO, said: “Collins Aerospace has been a valuable customer of FACC since our company was founded. We are delighted to be able to extend and strengthen our long-standing relationship with Collins Aerospace, collaborating with them in the supply of thrust reverser translating sleeves for the two aircraft programs.

“This contract confirms our joint success and the mutual trust we have built up over the last 30 years. With our team’s enthusiasm and commitment to excellence, we are able to provide Collins Aerospace with innovation at the highest technical level and best product support.”

In 2005, Collins Aerospace commissioned FACC to develop and manufacture thrust reverser translating sleeves for the Boeing 787 engine programs.

One year later, FACC was also selected as the development and manufacturing supplier for the thrust reverser translating sleeves for the Airbus A350 XWB family.

During the contract so far, FACC has equipped nearly 1,000 Boeing and 400 Airbus airplanes with thrust reverser translating sleeves based on FACC design and engineering.

The present contract extension covers the production of the thrust reverser translating sleeves for the next 10 years.
