Firan Technology Group Corporation announced today that it has been awarded new long-term agreements from Rockwell Collins for the supply of printed wiring boards (PWBs).

The award incorporates a variety of technologies for use on major airframe platforms across business, regional, air transport and government systems market applications and consists of multi-year awards up to five years.

A large portion of the business award has been attributed to FTG’s ability to offer global solutions. Through FTG’s unitization of both its North American and Asian facilities, key objectives were met in securing the awards.

FTG continues to work closely with Rockwell Collins in support of new technology qualifications ensuring long term support of Rockwell Collins PWB requirements.

“FTG appreciates the trust Rockwell Collins has in our ability to deliver quality product and adapt to the ever changing technologies and economic conditions,” stated Ian Maknyik, Director of Business Development. “We look forward to sharing future success and growth opportunities with Rockwell Collins for years to come.”
