CHICAGO — A ThyssenKrupp Aerospace North America contract to supply aluminum sheet products and related supply chain services to Cessna Aircraft Co. has been extended by three years.

The Kent, Wash.-based subsidiary of Essen, Germany-based ThyssenKrupp AG said June 28 it will supply Cessna’s facilities in Wichita, Kan., as well as the aviation company’s subcontractors throughout North America, from its operations in Hutchinson, Kan.

"We look forward to working with Cessna on lowering their material distribution costs and continuing to partner on creative ways to simplify their supply chain," Jeff Luckasavage, president of ThyssenKrupp Aerospace North America, said in a statement.

ThyssenKrupp will continue "to play a key role in the Cessna supply chain moving into the future," Justin Salmans, vice president of supply chain management for Wichita-based Cessna, said in a statement.

ThyssenKrupp Aerospace employs 1,600 people and provides material and supply chain management to aerospace firms in the Americas, Europe, Asia and North Africa, the company said.
