The Boeing Company has selected New Breed Logistics to support the manufacturing and final assembly operations of the 787 Dreamliner aircraft in Charleston, South Carolina.
The agreement expands on an existing relationship between the two, New Breed reports, and represents the largest single contract between the companies.
Under the new contract New Breed will receive, store, provide inventory control, kit, package, distribute and transport 787 parts, tools and supplies within Boeing's North Charleston assembly facility.
"We are focused every day on providing superior solutions and excellent execution for Boeing," said Louis DeJoy, New Breed's chairman and CEO commented. "This type of growth and expansion with Boeing is the proof that our efforts have truly made a difference for them and provides further incentive for us to keep raising the bar."
New Breed was selected in 2006 to provide logistical support for 787 final assembly and delivery at Boeing's manufacturing campus in Everett, Washington. In addition to working with the 787, New Breed operates Boeing's spare parts program for eastern North America, South America and Central America; the F/A-18 Integrated Readiness Support Teaming program; and spares programs for the H-46 rotorcraft, the Harrier Integrated Supply Support program, Japanese and Italian KC-767 tankers, Korean F-15s, the C-17 and the F-22. Additionally, the company provides parts kitting and line-side delivery services for new-build military rotorcraft programs that involve the Chinook and V-22 Osprey.
