MAGELLAN AEROSPACE SIGNS AGREEMENT WITH THE BOEING COMPANY FOR EXHAUST SYSTEMS
Toronto, Ontario – 30 MAY 2023 – Magellan Aerospace Corporation (“Magellan”) announced today the signing of a contract extension with The Boeing Company (“Boeing”), to manufacture large and complex nacelle exhaust systems for the 767 program. The fabricated metallic assemblies will be produced and delivered from Magellan’s facility in Middletown, Ohio.
The continuation of this agreement with Boeing will ensure the supply of Magellan’s acoustic plug and nozzle exhaust assemblies for the 767 program. Magellan utilizes internally manufactured metallic honeycomb in the production process. The metallic honeycomb is manufactured utilizing materials suitable for higher temperatures and offers advantages in weight savings and acoustic attenuation.
“We have developed a great working relationship over the past 40 years and look forward to continuing to support this foundational program at our Middletown operation”, said Haydn Martin, Vice President, Business Development, Marketing and Contracts at Magellan.
Magellan has decades of expertise in the design, manufacture, and certification of nacelle exhaust systems. This experience is demonstrated by a lineage of programs where Magellan has collaborated with commercial customers to supply unique exhaust systems for engines on different aircraft platforms. Magellan’s Middletown facility has been a continuous supplier for Boeing for 70 years.
