Nikkiso Vietnam ships blocker doors for Boeing 777
Nikkiso Vietnam, Inc., (NVI) Monday shipped its first set of GE blocker doors, a key component on Boeing 777 airplane engines, to the US-based AeroSystems company.
These parts will be installed on the GE115 and shipped to Boeing Commercial Airplanes in Everett, WA, for final assembly of Boeing 777 aircraft.
Since 2010, NVI has successfully met Boeing’s qualifications to produce these parts. In March 2011, first article inspection was completed and production was approved by Spirit AeroSystems, Inc.
With the certifications and qualifications NVI now possesses, the company’s ability to manufacture aerospace composite parts has expanded, and NVI is now preparing for future opportunities at this facility.
NVI is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nikkiso Co., Ltd., located in northern Hung Yen province, with the total investment of US$1 million.
