MILAN (Reuters) – Italy’s Leonardo said on Thursday he was an “injured party” after one of his sub-suppliers allegedly supplied improperly manufactured components for Boeing’s (NYSE 🙂 787 Dreamliner.
Boeing Co and US regulators said Thursday that some 787 Dreamliner titanium parts were manufactured incorrectly over the past three years.
“The sub-supplier is under the scrutiny of prosecutors, so Leonardo is the injured party and will not bear any potential costs associated with this problem,” the state-controlled Italian advocacy group said in a statement.
Leonardo added that the company, Manufacturing Processes Specification (MPS), was no longer his supplier.
The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
