Magellan Aerospace Announces Contract Award with Boeing

May 11, 2012

MISSISSAUGA, ON, May 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Magellan Aerospace Corporation
announced today that it has been awarded a contract with The Boeing
Company for the continuation of the production of complex, hard metal
structural assemblies for the Next-Generation 737, 747-8, 767, 777, and
the production of such assemblies for the new 787 Dreamliner
airplanes.  These integrated assemblies will be manufactured and
delivered from Magellan’s New York, NY and Kitchener, Ontario operating
facilities beginning in 2013.

This long term contract will continue Magellan’s revenues from work for
Boeing Commercial beginning in 2013 and into the next decade and
provides a fundamental pillar of support to Magellan’s core commercial
platform.  Direct Boeing Commercial sales in 2011 contributed in excess
of $80 Million Cdn. in revenue to Magellan. Magellan’s core
aerostructures expertise is in the provision of complex, machined
components for large commercial platforms.  Boeing and Magellan have an
established relationship and have benefited from working together to
develop improved efficiencies using Boeing lean and value engineering
tools as well as the Magellan Operating System(TM) (MOS(TM)).  “We
continuously find ways to improve our processes to ensure our
customer’s needs are fully satisfied,” stated James Butyniec, Magellan
President and Chief Executive Officer.

The Boeing contract provides a solid base of work for Magellan over the
contract term.  “We look forward to continuing our strong, long-term
“partnership” with one of our most valued customers and are well
prepared to support future program requirements as they develop,” said
Daniel Zanatta, Magellan Vice President, Business Development,
Marketing and Contracts.
