VANCOUVER—Avcorp Industries Inc. has been awarded a long-term production contract with the Aerospace Company of Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd., a tier-one supplier to major original equipment manufacturers of commercial and defence aircraft around the world.

Avcorp will produce complex composite structural components for FHI that will be assembled for the Boeing 787 center wing box.

Avcorp, which will produce the components from its composite fabrication facility in Gardena, California, expects that production volumes will grow by as much as 50 percent over historical supply rates.

As a result of the contract award, Avcorp’s order backlog is currently estimated at $901 million.  The company said that the new total reflects the cumulative net effect of recent production deliveries as well as the addition of production contract with FHI.
