Boeing and VSMPO-AVISMA have confirmed their plans for expanding production operations at Ural Boeing Manufacturing (UBM). The formal statement was made by the parties in Moscow on December 21, 2016, as RusBusinessNews has been informed by the Press Service of the titanium corporation.
The new production facility is being created on a parity basis. It will start operating in the Titanium Valley special economic zone (Sverdlovsk Region) in the first quarter of 2018 and will focus on processing of die forgings for Boeing commercial aircraft, including the Boeing 787 family as well as new models: 737 MAX and 777X.
