Spirit AeroSystems and Boeing have signed a new pact to strengthen the two companies' relationship after problems with Spirit's fuselages used in Boeing's 737 MAX jets weighed on production.

The companies described the pact as a memorandum of agreement to enable production increases and enhance quality as well as predictability.

"This united effort to synchronize our production systems will enable greater market responsiveness and delivery assurance," said Spirit Chief Executive Patrick Shanahan, who took over last month on an interim basis.
