CCS Composites (Benicia, Calif.), a division of YLA Inc., announced on May 31 its first shipment in a multiyear, multimillion dollar contract with Boeing for hydraulic clamps on the 787 _Dreamliner_. According to CCS, after receiving the multimillion dollar order in October 2006, an intense collaborative effort between Boeing's and CCS' technical teams ensured the first delivery to Boeing's international partners in record time in December. CCS has continued to honor commitments to Boeing's delivery schedule for the last several months. "The production-level delivery timeline for the first ship set was only 10 weeks for a multitude of tools to be engineered from scratch, an extraordinary goal and achievement,"said Samuel Sher, YLA's director of marketing and business development. "We are excited to be providing high quality, quick turn products that contribute to the technical achievements of the _Dreamliner_ program.”
