To support the transition of wing production and deliveries for the Global 7500 program, which entered into service in December 2018, Bombardier will enter into a lease agreement for Triumph’s Red Oak, Texas, facility and continue to operate the production line with the employees currently supporting the program.

“This acquisition is a perfect strategic fit for Bombardier Aerostructures,” said Danny Di Perna, president, Bombardier Aerostructures and Engineering Services. “It will allow us to bring our extensive technical expertise to one of the industry’s biggest growth programs, while solidifying our position as a leading wing provider.”
