The A350 XWB wing fixed trailing edge package is the first of five LTAs to be awarded to Midland by new strategic customers in 2015.  Four other packages, to be supplied to undisclosed customers, will be formally announced in due course.  The Company has recently added new staff and commissioned two new 5-axis machine tools to accommodate the forecasted increase in production.
