Shenyang Aircraft has delivered its 8,000th Airbus A320 door. The company is a unit of the Aviation Industry Corporation of China. Aircraft parts made in China have been used in almost all major commercial aircraft in the world.
Shenyang Aircraft delivered the 8,000th door on Monday. It's the sole supplier for the A-320 emergency exit doors. Its products have earned praise from its partners. And Shenyang Aircraft will also be designated as sole supplier for A-330 and A-340 doors.
The Aviation Industry Corporation of China says it's very important for Chinese companies to be part of the global aviation production chains.
Chen Fusheng, deputy manager of Aviation Industry Corp. of China, says, "we hope that in the next ten years, some of our units will see production value of around one and a half billion yuan a year, and become international first-class parts suppliers."
As China is developing its own commercial aircraft, it's also moving ahead in the manufacturing of parts.
