TriMas announced that its TriMas Aerospace group is further expanding its defense business through the award of multi-year contracts with Boeing.
TriMas Aerospace designs, engineers, and manufactures engineered ducts and fasteners for the global commercial and military aerospace industry under several brands, including RSA Engineered Products, Monogram Aerospace Fasteners, Allfast Fastening Systems, Mac Fasteners, TFI Aerospace, and Martinic Engineering.
TriMas Aerospace’s RSA Engineered Products (RSA) business was awarded several components used in fluid conveyance applications, more specifically within the air ducting system, by Boeing for its T-7A Red Hawk training jet program.
“Boeing is an important aerospace growth customer for fasteners, low and high pressure ducting, and advance machined and other related components,” said Thomas Amato, TriMas president and CEO. “We are proud to be selected by Boeing to support their important T-7A training jet program.”
The Boeing T-7A Red Hawk is an all-new advanced pilot training system for the U.S. Air Force, which will train future pilots for decades to come. The growth of the Boeing defense business supports the execution of TriMas Aerospace’s growth strategy to expand its aerospace product offering into defense-related applications, gaining additional market share through leveraging a broad value proposition of innovative products and operational excellence.
“RSA Engineered Products’ technical, commercial and manufacturing teams have worked diligently with Boeing during the past few years to prototype and qualify 38 distinct and highly engineered duct products,” said John Schaefer, president of TriMas Aerospace. “We are beginning to ramp up our production capabilities and look forward to shipping production units toward the end of this year, as we continue to work closely with Boeing to support their new and innovative training jet.”
