Boeing has awarded Mincham Aviation a contract to manufacture four assembly-spare-part sets for the CH-47 Chinook after the South Australian company was identified during recent Boeing Office of Australian Industry Capability (OAIC) conferences.

The contract “is the first step in what we hope will be a long term relationship with Boeing,” said Daryll Mincham, managing director of Micham Aviation. “We initially approached the OAIC with the intention of achieving a contract within three years, so gaining a contract in less than 12 months is well beyond our expectations.”

The OAIC works directly with Boeing’s major business units and key suppliers to coordinate supplier visits, industry conferences, and provide mentoring and training for selected Australian small to medium enterprises.
