Triumph to supply composite rudder components for Airbus A350 XWB

Triumph Group was selected by Harbin Hafei Airbus Composite Manufacturing Centre Company (HHACMC) to supply composite parts for the Airbus A350 XWB aircraft. Triumph Precision Components’ composites center of excellence site in Thailand will produce the composite details for the rudder, which will be assembled at HHACMC in Harbin, China.

The contract, valued at approximately $26M, covers the delivery of 700 shipsets of rudder component kits over the next 5–7 years for the A350 XWB program. Triumph leveraged recent investments in its Thailand facility to increase capability and expand capacity to position itself to win and execute this new agreement.

“Our focus on performance, coupled with our demonstrated ability to obtain the necessary qualifications and transfer work on schedule, provided us with this opportunity to further demonstrate our capability to produce complex composite aerostructures.” said Ronald Vuz, president of Composites Center of Excellence site in Thailand.

This agreement allows Triumph to help meet the strong demand for services in the burgeoning Asian aerospace market. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to lead the market for new aircraft over the next 20 years.
