VIENNA -- Collins Aerospace Systems has awarded FACC a multiyear contract extension covering the supply of thrust reverser translating sleeves for nacelles on the Airbus A350 XWB and Boeing 787 aircraft. The contract entails delivery of the nacelle components into the next decade.

"Collins Aerospace has been a valuable customer of FACC since our company was founded. We are delighted to be able to extend and strengthen our long-standing relationship with Collins Aerospace, collaborating with them in the supply of thrust reverser translating sleeves for the two aircraft programs," commented FACC CEO Robert Machtlinger. "This contract confirms our joint success and the mutual trust we have built up over the last 30 years. With our team's enthusiasm and commitment to excellence, we are able to provide Collins Aerospace with innovation at the highest technical level and best product support."

In 2005, Collins Aerospace commissioned FACC to develop and manufacture thrust reverser translating sleeves for the Boeing 787. One year later, FACC was also selected as the development and manufacturing supplier for the translating sleeves for the Airbus A350 XWB family. So far, FACC has equipped nearly 1,000 Boeing and 400 Airbus airplanes with thrust reverser translating sleeves based on FACC design and engineering. The present contract extension covers the production of the translating sleeves for the next 10 years.

"This is a key program for FACC; it further secures our relationship with Collins Aerospace and is therefore an important factor for our continued success on the engine platforms for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and the Airbus A350 XWB," said Guenter Nelboeck, FACC Vice President of Engines & Nacelles. "Our expertise in engineering and global supply chain management, the high qualification of the FACC workforce, and our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities are essential to Collins Aerospace and demonstrate our best-in-class capabilities in technology, innovation, and efficiency."
