Boeing Acquires Spirit AeroSystems for $4.7 Billion to Bolster Supply Chain

Boeing (BA: NYE) announced a strategic move to acquire Spirit AeroSystems (SPR: NYE) for $4.7 billion in an all-stock deal. This comes after facing challenges in its supply chain and quality control processes. The acquisition aims to give Boeing more direct oversight over production and improve the quality of critical aircraft parts.

 

A Supplier Under Scrutiny: 

Spirit AeroSystems, a former Boeing subsidiary, manufactures key components for Boeing’s commercial airplanes, including the 737 and 787 models. However, recent quality issues with parts supplied by Spirit have led to delays in Boeing’s aircraft deliveries. A fuselage issue from a Spirit factory was also linked to a door malfunction on an Alaska Airlines flight in January.

By bringing Spirit in-house, Boeing aims to ensure its production meets the highest safety and quality standards.
