Albany International’s subsidiary Albany Engineered Composites (AEC) has reached agreement with Boeing to renew and expand its composite fuselage frame content for 787 Dreamliner. AEC will now manufacture composite fuselage frames for portion of aft section of the aircraft (section 47) adding to forward sections (41 and 43) it has been making since 2014.

AEC will now supply composite fuselage frames for all three variants of the 787 Dreamliner.
