Avcorp Industries Inc. is pleased to announce that it has received notice of award from The Boeing Company for the production and supply of 767-2C panoramic camera fairings, as part of the KC-46 tanker program.

Each shipset of panoramic camera fairings consist of large and complex composites and metallic components which will be assembled into a fully integrated assembly in the Avcorp Delta facility. These fully integrated fairings attach directly to the 767-2C fuselage and will be delivered direct to the final assembly line in Everett, Washington.

Avcorp has been manufacturing and supplying Boeing with various aircraft components, including 737 wheel well fairings, 737 wing tip panels, metal bond partition panels for various Boeing aircraft and CH47 Chinook Helicopter cockpit nose enclosure assemblies and tunnel covers, for more than 20 years.

"This new contract underscores the importance of our longstanding supply partnership with Boeing.  We are proud that our supply partnership with Boeing continues to provide us with opportunities to contribute on yet another key platform with Boeing," said Peter George, Avcorp Industries Inc. CEO.
