The Hot Springs facility of Triumph Group will benefit from a deal to provide structural formed skins for the Bombardier thrust reversers to be fitted on Geared Turbo Fan powered A320neo aircraft.

Under the contract, Triumph will work with Bombardier Belfast to support the production of the newly designed thrust reversers as it completes the initial phases of design and test, and on through the full program lifecycle. The company said its Hot Springs operation will fulfill the contract.

“Triumph’s extensive experience in metal-forming techniques will support Bombardier’s supply chain throughout the program from test panels to full-rate production,” noted the statement.

Berwyn, Pa.-based Triumph Group designs, engineers, manufactures, repairs and overhauls a broad portfolio of aerospace and defense systems, components and structures. The company serves the global aviation industry, including original equipment manufacturers and military and commercial aircraft operators.

“We are excited to be onboard with Bombardier Belfast in support of the A320neo thrust reverser program. This win provides our Fabrications business with the opportunity to provide value-added support for the Bombardier thrust reverser program by utilizing our unique capabilities and expertise through the initial design and test phase and for the course of this long-term, high volume program,” Pete Wick, executive vice president of Triumph Aerospace Structures, said in a statement.
