Metal additive manufacturing company Amaero International has received a purchase order from Boeing for the manufacture of metal evaluation parts.
The evaluation parts will be developed and manufactured at the company’s facilities in Melbourne and El Segundo, California.
Amaero CEO, Barrie Finnin, said the purchase order from Boeing ‘confirms and strengthens’ the company’s long term strategic direction.
The purpose of Boeing’s Global Supply Chain program is to provide access to companies like Amaero to identify opportunities to support global programs within Boeing,” Mr Finnin continued.
“We have worked closely with Boeing’s Global Supply Chain people to unearth a multitude of opportunities within several Boeing programs for Amaero to supply prototypes and production.
“We look forward to working on the evaluation parts in our facilities in Melbourne and El Segundo and continuing to build our relationship.”
Headquartered in Notting Hill, Victoria, Amaero International manufactures large format complex components in metal with laser-based additive manufacturing processes, commonly known as 3D printing.
The company was established with the support of Monash University in 2013 to take advantage of commercial opportunities identified by the Monash Centre for Additive Manufacturing (MCAM).
