UTC Aerospace Systems Selected to provide Wheels and Carbon Brakes for the Boeing 737 MAX

UTC Aerospace Systems has been selected by The Boeing Company to supply wheels and carbon brakes for all models of the Boeing 737 MAX. The company will provide the equipment through its Landing Systems facility in Troy, Ohio. UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:  UTX).

UTC Aerospace Systems will provide the main wheel, nose wheel and carbon brakes for the 737 MAX.  The carbon brakes use proprietary DURACARB(R) carbon heat sink material proven in service on more than 3,100 aircraft world-wide to provide a 35 percent brake life advantage over competitive products, providing significant cost savings for operators.


"We have supplied wheels and brakes for the Boeing 737 program since 1978 and we are proud to extend that long partnership to the 737 MAX.  We look forward to supporting Boeing and this extremely efficient new airplane," stated Jim Wharton, senior vice president, Landing Systems.
