TriMas, a manufacturing group based in Bloomfield Hills, today announced its TriMas Aerospace group is further expanding its defense business through the award of multi-year contracts with Boeing. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
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.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with Boeing by leveraging our product and process innovation capabilities within RSA Engineered Products,” says Thomas Amato, president and CEO of TriMas. “Boeing is an important aerospace growth customer for fasteners, low- and high-pressure ducting, and advance machined and other related components. We are proud to be selected by Boeing to support their important T-7A training jet program.”
The Boeing T-7A Red Hawk is a 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.
TriMas Aerospace designs, engineers, and manufactures engineered ducts and fasteners for the global commercial and military aerospace industry under the following leading brands: RSA Engineered Products, Monogram Aerospace Fasteners, Allfast Fastening Systems, Mac Fasteners, TFI Aerospace, and Martinic Engineering.
“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,” says 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.”
