Boeing Co . has confirmed that it’s in talks with Spirit AeroSystems which could end up with the major supplier being reintegrated under the Boeing umbrella.

The two companies already work closely together, with Spirit AeroSystems manufacturing key components for Boeing’s commercial aircraft.

“We have been working closely with Spirit AeroSystems and its leadership to strengthen the quality of the commercial airplanes that we build together. We confirm that our collaboration has resulted in preliminary discussions about making Spirit AeroSystems a part of Boeing again,” Boeing said in a statement.

Boeing added it believes the reintegration of Boeing and Spirit AeroSystems’ manufacturing operations would “further strengthen aviation safety, improve quality and serve the interests of our customers, employees, and shareholders.”

Essentially, Boeing believes bringing Spirit AeroSystems’ operations in-house, would give it more direct control over manufacturing processes and quality assurance measures.
