MILAN (Reuters) – Italy’s Leonardo said on Thursday it was an “injured party” after one of its sub-suppliers had allegedly provided improperly manufactured components for Boeing (NYSE:BA)’s 787 Dreamliner.

Boeing Co and U.S. regulators said Thursday that some titanium 787 Dreamliner parts were improperly manufactured over the past three years.

“The sub-supplier is under scrutiny by prosecutors therefore Leonardo is injured party and will not bear any potential costs associated with this issue,” the Italian state-controlled defence group said in a statement.

Leonardo added that the company, Manufacturing Processes Specification (MPS), was no longer its supplier.

The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
