ROSELAND, N.J. (AP) -- Curtiss-Wright Corp. said Wednesday it has received a multiyear contract worth more than $80 million from Saab Aerostructures for cargo door equipment.
The company said the contract is a follow-on to a $16 million deal announced in February. It said sales from the program could top $200 million over many years.
Curtiss-Wright will provide systems that lift, latch and lock the cargo door of Boeing 787 jets. The Roseland-based company will make the components and subassemblies in Shelby, N.C.
The Boeing 787 is expected to begin commercial flights next year.
