Diehl Aerosystems has won additional work packages on the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner. The first-tier supplier has been assigned to develop, manufacture and deliver the cabin ceilings as well as all doorway lining parts for the 787-10. This contract for major cabin work packages marks a significant milestone in the cooperation between Boeing and Diehl. Currently, Diehl is supplying the cabin lighting system as well as actuator control electronics for the Boeing 787-8, 787-9 and 787-10. Furthermore, cabin lighting solutions for all Boeing twin aisle platforms are supplied by Diehl.
In order to offer optimized support for Boeing’s program schedule, Diehl has already dedicated a team of engineers to the newly-won work packages. The cabin interior elements from Diehl for this airplane will be designed and built by Diehl Aircabin in Laupheim, Germany, with first deliveries to Boeing being scheduled in due time. Diehl Aircabin became an approved supplier to Boeing at the beginning of 2015.
