Hopkinsville, KY:   Semi-Finished Titanium Airframe Extrusion producer Plymouth Engineered Shapes announces that it has been awarded a new contract from Airbus. The scope of the ten-year agreement includes titanium extrusions which will be utilized throughout the programs for the A350 XWB, including A350-800, A350-900 and A350-1000.
