Hitco Carbon Composites Inc., an affiliate of the SGL Carbon Group, recently announced that it has entered into agreements with The Boeing Co. to produce up to 60 more large composite tailcone structures (in addition to the 110 already delivered to Boeing and the 14 units remaining to be built in the first contract) for the C-17 Globemaster III transport.

We are proud to provide the composite tailcone for this versatile, reliable and necessary aircraft."
