Boeing and TAL Manufacturing Solutions, a TATA Enterprise signed a new contract for TAL’s continued manufacturing of the Advanced Composite Floor Beam for Boeing's 787-9 and 787-10 Dreamliner airplanes. Boeing awarded the first contract to TAL for the floor beams in October 2011, and TAL recently delivered the 13,000th floor beam successfully to 787 fuselage suppliers. TAL has a dedicated manufacturing facility for Boeing in Nagpur from where it manufactures and ships the ACFBs.

Mr Pratyush Kumar, President, Boeing India, said that “Boeing has provided advanced technology to support this partnership, and closely worked with TAL as they trained the frontline factory workers who are now delivering world-class quality.”

This partnership demonstrates our capability in providing world-class standards of precision and quality and developing a highly skilled workforce to undertake high-technology work for global customers.”

Mr Lokesh Srivastava, COO, TAL Manufacturing Solutions, said they have been able to meet the quality and delivery needs of the 787 programme using next-generation technology and manufacturing practices for making the ACFBs. Boeing and various Tata group companies have established partnerships in India to manufacture aerostructures for Boeing’s commercial and military aircraft. Recently, Tata Boeing Aerospace inaugurated its state-of-the-art Apache fuselage facility in Hyderabad.
