Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Thursday, 7 February 2008

Boeing has entered into an agreement with India-based TAL Manufacturing Solutions Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Motors Ltd., for manufacturing structural components for Boeing's 787 Dreamliner airplane program.

Under the agreement, TAL Manufacturing Solutions will build floor beams for the 787 using new technology with advanced titanium and composite materials. These floor beams will be used on the 787 Dreamliner and provide for a best-value solution and significant weight savings. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

"Boeing is proud to welcome Tata into its family of world-class aerospace suppliers and we are confident that this partnership will help Boeing and Tata leverage mutual best-value capabilities," said Carolyn Corvi, vice president and general manager of Airplane Programs for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "This partnership between Boeing and Tata will further increase the value of the 787 to our customers, helping make it the world's leading commercial airplane." 

The floor beams for the 787 airplane will be produced at TAL's new facility in Nagpur, India, and then transported to Boeing partners in Japan, Italy and the United States for further assembly. 

"The production of Boeing's structural components by TAL indicates technical and manufacturing excellence within the group," said Ravi Kant, chairman, TAL and managing director, Tata Motors Ltd. "We believe that this agreement has the potential to develop into a more broad-based alliance that would enable both organizations to utilize the best and most competitive resources within themselves and thereby offer greater value to customers."

To date, the 787 has logged more than 855 orders from more than 55 customers worldwide since program launch in 2004.
