Goodrich says will go after new Boeing business


Aircraft supplier Goodrich Corp said it intends to pursue new business with Boeing should it decide to re-engine or redesign its 737 narrowbody plane.

“Is Boeing going to re-engine? Are they going to do a whole new airplane on the 737? Either way we intend to play,” Goodrich Chairman and Chief Executive Marshall Larsen told Reuters in an interview at the Paris Air Show. “777 variant same thing.”

Goodrich supplies a host of parts for the Airbus A320 plane family and has content on the Boeing 787.

Larsen, who approaches retirement age in a couple of years, also said his successor would likely come from within Goodrich.
“We’ve got quite a few candidates, male and female,” he said.
