Toho Tenax Co., Ltd., the core company of the Teijin Group's carbon fiber business, announced that its European division, Toho Tenax Europe GmbH, has been awarded a contract to supply carbon fiber material for major primary and secondary composite structures on Bombardier's new CSeries aircraft program. Toho Tenax will be supplying a variety of carbon fiber types for both dry textile and prepreg use on the program. Toho Tenax expects the award to generate revenues of approximately 130 million euros over the next ten years.

Bombardier is a world-leading manufacturer of innovative transportation solutions, from commercial aircraft and business jets to rail transportation equipment, systems and services. The CSeries aircraft sets a new benchmark in the 100- to 149-seat class, combining advanced materials, and leading-edge technology to meet commercial airline needs from 2013 onwards.

Bombardier Aerospace has chosen Toho Tenax's advanced carbon fiber materials to support this aircraft program because the latest TENAX carbon fiber materials meet the aircraft's advanced design requirements and support Bombardier's newly developed high-tech manufacturing processes.

Bombardier and CSeries are either registered or unregistered trademarks of Bombardier Inc. or its subsidiaries.

Toho Tenax is the core company of the Teijin Group's carbon fibers business. The Toho Tenax Group is a leading carbon fiber manufacturer worldwide with an annual production capacity of 13,500 tons in Japan, Germany and USA. Toho Tenax Europe GmbH is an affiliate being located in Germany and responsible for the European market.
