PARSIPPANY, NJ- Curtiss-Wright Corp., through its Motion Control segment, has renewed its long-term agreement with Boeing Commercial Airplanes. The agreement extends the current contract and gives Curtiss-Wright exclusive rights to manufacture numerous products for Boeing production airplanes, including the 737 and 767 trailing edge flap actuators, 747-8 leading edge flap actuators, 777 flap position gearboxes, 767 and 777 cargo door actuators, 747-8, 767 and 777 cargo hold smoke detectors and various flight control and pilot control position sensors.

Curtiss-Wright first delivered flight control actuation components to Boeing that built the foundation of this long-term agreement in the 1960s, starting with trailing edge flap actuators for the 737 platform. Since then, the business has grown to include components on all Boeing commercial aircraft as well as Boeing military aircraft.
