Following LORD Corp’s acquisition of Fly-by-Wire, the French avionics house, both entities have derived considerable benefits. A hoped-for move to new, 50%-bigger premises was quickly signed off on by LORD, and the former Fly-by-Wire – now known as LORD Electromechanical Solutions – is increasing its head count. And in March, the newly consolidated business was awarded a massive contract – the biggest in LORD's 94-year history – to manufacture auto-throttle control systems for Boeing’s 737 Max. Deliveries are due to begin in 2020, with this contract alone requiring LORD ES to hire another 30 staff.
