LACONIA, N.H., 4 June 2013. Titeflex Aerospace, manufacturer of fluid transfer hoses and assemblies in Laconia, N.H., won two contracts from Boeing to supply AS1975 and AS4570 flex-rigid assemblies for its 777 airplane platform.
The Titeflex hybrid assembly combines flex hose with multi-bend tube, designed to offer improved vibration dampening, ease of installation, and maintenance.
