Boeing to seek supplier cost reductions after Embraer deal: CEO
Asked if he would expect further price cuts over and above those baked into Boeing`s Partnering for Success cost-cutting drive, he said: "Yes. Because you`ll see additional increases in volume. And a very typical discussion we`ll have with our supply chain is if there`s an opportunity for them to increase volume or access to additional platforms, if we can gain a cost advantage in the marketplace, that`s a mutual benefit."
Boeing will press for deeper price cuts from suppliers with overlapping operations once it completes its planned acquisition of the regional jet business of Brazil`s Embraer. Image source: Reuters
