Quebec’s Avior to partner with Boeing on 737 MAX airplane program
Avior Integrated Products, which has three manufacturing plants in Quebec, will supply parts for the access door assemblies on Boeing's 737 Max aircraft.
Laval, Que.-based aerospace manufacturer Avior Integrated Products has entered into a multi-year contract with Boeing on the manufacture of the U.S. giant’s 737 MAX aircraft.
As a full-service manufacturer of lightweight structures, Avior has been recruited specifically for access door assembly of the aircraft.
In a statement, Avior CEO Stephen Kearns said the project will involve contributions from the company’s three manufacturing facilities in Quebec.
WestJet Airlines will be the first commercial carrier in Canada to take delivery of the new Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft, one of 50 scheduled for delivery in the next four years. The 174-seat aircraft is expected to officially enter service on Nov. 9 with a flight from Calgary to Toronto.
Avior specialises in a number of operations, including the manufacture of composites, acrylics, metal components, and a wide variety of plastic components for aircraft cabin and cockpit interior panels as well as aircraft windows and wing tip lenses.
