Boeing Receives V-22 Ramp Assemblies From Triumph

Jeff Brody

Triumph Group has delivered the initial ramp and ramp door platforms to Boeing's (NYSE: BA) defense, space and security division in support of the V-22 Osprey program.

Boeing ordered a total of 60 assemblies for integration onto the tiltrotor's aft fuselage at a company facility in Philadelphia,  Triumph said Tuesday.

The structures are manufactured at Triumph's Composites Center of Excellence in Milledgeville, Ga., which also produces sponsons, main landing gear doors, wiper fairings and other fuselage structures for the military aircraft.

Pete Wick, executive vice president for Triumph Aerospace Structures, said the company has supplied V-22 composite assemblies for more than two decades.

Boeing's joint venture with Textron's Bell subsidiary will build multiple variants of the aircraft for three U.S. military services and Japan under a $4.2B contract awarded in late June.
