Héroux-Devtek Inc. leading international manufacturer of aerospace products, proceeded today with the inauguration of a new manufacturing facility in the city of Cambridge, Ontario. This facility is one of the key constituents of Héroux-Devtek’s comprehensive capital investment plan aimed essentially at successfully carrying out an important long-term contract to supply The Boeing Company with complete landing gear systems for the B-777 and B-777X aircraft, for which deliveries are scheduled to begin in early calendar year 2017.

The 108,000 square foot facility, located in Cambridge’s new Boxwood Business Campus, will primarily manufacture large-scale, complex landing gear components. It is currently in the pre-production phase and is expected to be fully operational in June 2017.

If required, the facility could be expanded by approximately 100,000 square feet. Héroux-Devtek believes this facility will set new standards in regards to manufacturing technology and be viewed as a leading example in terms of productivity throughout the industry.

This state-of-the-art facility and other related investments by Héroux-Devtek in Ontario represent a total investment of approximately $54.2 million over a five-year period, including more than $46.0 million during the fiscal years ending on March 31, 2015 and 2016.

“This new facility will play a pivotal role in executing the most important landing gear contract in Héroux-Devtek’s history and its high level of automation will allow us to provide superior quality products to Boeing at a very competitive cost,” said Gilles Labbé, President and Chief Executive Officer of Héroux-Devtek.
