Bombardier to acquire Global 7500 aircraft wing program from Triumph Group Inc.
MONTREAL, Quebec - Bombardier today announced a definitive agreement to acquire the Global 7500 wing program from Triumph Group Inc. The acquired operations will be incorporated into Bombardier’s Aerostructures and Engineering Services segment.
Bombardier will enter into a lease agreement for Triumph’s Red Oak, Texas, facility and continue to operate the production line with the employees currently supporting the program.
“This acquisition is a perfect strategic fit for Bombardier Aerostructures,” said Danny Di Perna, President, Bombardier Aerostructures and Engineering Services. “It will allow us to bring our extensive technical expertise to one of the industry’s biggest growth programs, while solidifying our position as a leading wing provider. We look forward to welcoming the Triumph employees to Bombardier and ensuring the success of the Global 7500 program.”
The acquisition of the program’s assets and obligations for a nominal cash consideration is expected to close in the first quarter of 2019, subject to certain closing conditions. Bombardier will assume ongoing working capital investments and usual costs associated with the program’s production ramp-up.
