Triumph Composite Systems, Inc. Facility

Due to significant production rate reductions to our core business and the impact of COVID-19 on the commercial aviation market and travel industry, we have reached a point where it is no longer viable for Triumph to continue operations at the Triumph Composite Systems, Inc. site in Spokane Washington and therefore made the difficult decision to start the process of closing the site.

We realize this is a sensitive topic and may have a profound effect on our employees, their families, and the surrounding community.  We are committed to providing as much notice as possible and working with employees to provide resources that help to minimize the impact of the site closure and identify future employment opportunities.

Over the next several months, Triumph will work with its customers to satisfy requirements by product line.

TAS Red Oak Team Loads First T-7A Part to Assembly Jig

On Oct. 12, Triumph Aerospace Structures Red Oak celebrated a significant T-7A Program milestone – the first part was loaded in an assembly jig. Solid end-to-end collaboration with our customer, Boeing Defense, Space & Security and global supply chain partners was instrumental to achieve this milestone on time with the Integrated Master Schedule. Looking ahead, we’re laser focused on delivering the first unit in early 2021. This sets the stage for a strong multidecade program that is expected to mature into a dominant anchor program for Red Oak that could produce in excess of 2,000 ship sets of wings and empennage for the T-7A aircraft.

“Startup programs are always challenging; however, when a program launch is influenced by a global pandemic, it’s a clear reflection of our team’s determination and dedication to work with our stakeholders and achieve this milestone. Overseeing this first part load gives me a great sense of pride and appreciation of the efforts of the entire T-7A team.” Lee Anderson, T-7A Value Stream manager

“It was exciting to share in this event with the T-7A team and witness their enthusiasm in seeing parts load into the jig. This is a unique milestone that many employees have worked tirelessly around the clock to achieve and now it becomes tangible as the shop springs to life.” Dale Cooper, general manager

To Triumph Group Team Members:

The death of George Floyd last Monday has rightfully triggered a national outcry against injustice not only to “Floyd” as he was known, but to all people whose basic rights are so terribly violated. I was sickened to see the videos of Floyd struggle in police custody to stay alive and very saddened to hear he passed away soon afterward. The protests have spread across the U.S. as signals that we as a nation can no longer tolerate or be indifferent to such senseless tragedies, often at the expense of people of color.

At Triumph, our first Value is Integrity for a reason. It first states that we must “Do the Right Thing for our Stakeholders” which includes our fellow team members, customers, and visitors. The second component “We Value Safety, Diversity and Respect” aligns directly with the current tragedies. By applying our values in our workplace and while away from work – by honoring the dignity of life, and by respecting others, regardless of our differences – we can be a positive force for change at our sites and in our communities. If everyone in our society were to do this, we will turn the tide against brutality, violence, and racism one person and interaction at a time.

Some of you may have seen the photo from Louisville, Kentucky of the men of different colors who locked arms to encircle and protect a police officer who was separated from his fellow officers and at personal risk. This photo captures the greatness in our society and what people are capable of under times of great stress. The men who acted to ensure the safety of this officer did more to honor Floyd’s memory than any words ever could and inspire the rest of us to do the right thing, at all times, even when it is not easy.

Please keep the family of George Floyd including his two daughters and the other victims of violence and inequality in your prayers while we all strive to live our values to the fullest so that in our own way, we can be part of the healing of our nation.

Thank you,

Dan C.
