Constellium N.V. has announced that it has signed a multi-year agreement with Bombardier to supply flat rolled products in a rich mix of alloys, shapes and applications for a number of their aircraft programs such as C Series, CRJ Series, Q Series, Global and Challenger.
In this new contract, Constellium will become one of the leading suppliers of flat rolled products to Bombardier globally.
Constellium and Bombardier are long-time partners, with a strong history of collaborative research. Bombardier’s C Series aircraft aluminium-lithium fuselage sheets and extrusions are all currently supplied through Constellium’s Airware®platform.
“I am proud to see Bombardier and Constellium continuing to build on their partnership. This new contract allows us to further anchor our position as a key supplier of innovative aluminium solutions for Bombardier’s aircraft programs and as an industry leader more generally,” said Ingrid Joerg, President of Constellium’s Aerospace and Transportation business unit. “It demonstrates our expertise and skills in providing tailored products and spurs our ambition to pursue growth in the aerospace industry.”
Bombardier will be served by both of Constellium’s industrial facilities in Ravenswood, USA and Issoire, France.
