Boeing Selects New Breed for Logistics Support
This agreement represents continued growth of the relationship between New Breed and The Boeing Company and is the largest single contract between the two companies.
Under the contract, New Breed will receive, store, provide inventory control, kit, package, distribute, and transport 787 parts, tools, and supplies to designated locations within Boeing's North Charleston assembly facility.
New Breed's Boeing South Carolina support operations will be housed in a New Breed facility located in the Charleston area. Staffing plans for the facility will be finalized over the next few months.
New Breed currently supports several of Boeing's commercial and defense aviation programs.
In addition to the 787 Dreamliner, New Breed operates the Boeing Commercial Airplanes spare parts program for eastern North America, and South and Central Americas; the F/A-18 Integrated Readiness Support Teaming, or FIRST, 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, New Breed provides parts kitting and line-side delivery services for new-build military rotorcraft programs at Boeing's Ridley Park, Pennsylvania manufacturing site that include the Chinook and V-22 Osprey.
Louis DeJoy, chairman and CEO of New Breed, said: â€œWe are focused every day on providing superior solutions and excellent execution for Boeing. 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.â€
Will New Breed succeed in providing better logistics services to Boeing?
