This is the second major multi-year aerospace contract for the aluminum company.
Last May, the company inked a $2 billion deal with European aircraft maker Airbus and its parent company, the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Co., to provide a broad range of aluminum products for aircraft frames in all of their key commercial and defense aircraft models.
The deal came about following a $46 million upgrade to the company's Ravenswood aluminum stretcher.
During a ceremony last January celebrating the completion of the stretcher upgrade, Constellium Global Aerospace Division President Christophe Villemin said the upgrade would give the company the upper hand in the global marketplace.
"It's the largest stretcher in the world with the largest pull force in the world, which enables the production of key parts and large parts for commercial aircraft like Boeing and Airbus," Villemin said.
He said 2012 would be "test year" for the plant to make sure it can meet the higher demand generated by the new contracts the company hoped to secure.
"There will be more volumes, and more critical volumes," he said. "We have to pass the test, and if we pass the test, then 2013 and next year will be very good."
