GKN Fokker Elmo  has signed a  contract to supply  electrical wiring interconnection systems (EWIS) for the new Boeing 777X family. Production will start end of Q1 2020. The 777X EWIS will be delivered out of a number of strategic global locations, such as China, the Netherlands, and the new state-of-the-art wiring facility in Pune, India.  GKN Fokker Elmo has supplied EWIS to Boeing for more than a decade for the 777, 737 and P-8A. The new contract re-affirms GKN Fokker Elmo’s position as a strategic EWIS supplier to Boeing. GKN Fokker Elmo is globally recognized as one of the market and technology leaders in EWIS.
