June 15, 2009, Paris, France – Cyclone Manufacturing announced today it has signed a contract with Embraer to supply structural components on the Embraer 190/195 commercial aircraft and the Legacy 450-500 business jet. The contract has a value of $12 M over the next three years.
“This is another success story where Cyclone continues to demonstrate our worldly competitiveness,” said Jeremy Artus, Vice President, Business Development. “Cyclone was chosen because of our advanced technological expertise coupled with our manufacturing capability of complex structural components.”
Cyclone will manufacture various large die forged structural components for the commercial aircraft and deliveries will commence in late July 2009 with a delivery rate of eight aircraft per month. Deliveries for the Embraer Legacy 450-500 business jet will commence in the second quarter of 2010. Cyclone will manufacture both upper and lower wing skins including the major spars for the wings. The contract was awarded as a result of a competitive process ending this spring.
Cyclone manufactures spars, frames, longerons, bulkheads and many other components up to 480 inches in length for several leading companies including Bombardier, General Electric, Israel Aircraft Industries and Aerospace Industries Development Corporation (AIDC).
Cyclone is currently making major investments in order to improve its products and to win new business. “We are investing in new technology with the help of the Next Generation of Jobs Fund program from the Ontario government,” said Andrew Sochaj, President, Cyclone Manufacturing. “We’ll be adding to our existing core competence with the addition of a new state of the art surface treatment facility able to process components up to eight meters in length, and the addition of advanced composite manufacturing technologies. We expect the investment to help Cyclone grow faster.”
