Commercial Aircraft Corp. recruiting parts suppliers nationwide


The Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (CAC) is now recruiting potential domestic suppliers to supply parts for its C919 jumbo jets and accepting bids.
CAC general manager Jin Zhanglong explained that fostering domestic supply chains of jet parts serves as an important strategic interest for China. It can also help develop the high-tech manufacturing sector because building jumbo jets demands a high level of technological sophistication. Jin said about 50 percent of the required parts have to be supplied by outside manufacturers. Parts for which bids are being solicited include: radar shield, nose, the front frame, mid-frame and other structural components, as well as flight controls, avionics, power and lighting supplies, and APU. CAC requires that potential suppliers be from mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau or Taiwan regions. They must also be independent legal entities that can pass ISO9001 (or equivalent) certification and have equipment design and manufacturing capacity.
