Magellan Aerospace has signed a six year agreement with Pratt & Whitney to manufacture aluminum castings for its Next Generation Product Family of engines. The NGPF engines are used on the Airbus A320neo, Airbus A220 (formerly known as Bombardier C-Series), Embraer E2 series and Mitsubishi MRJ aircraft.
The castings will be produced at Magellan's facilities in Haley, Ontario, Canada and Glendale, Arizona. The agreement is expected to generate approximately CDN $81 million in revenue for Magellan through 2023.
"This new agreement will provide Pratt & Whitney with enhanced security of supply with Magellan internally dual sourcing these castings between two manufacturing facilities in Canada and the USA, significantly de-risking the supply chain,” said Haydn Martin, Magellan's vice president, business development, marketing and contracts. “Magellan will utilize the latest in advanced sand casting technologies, specifically 3D sand printing and automated pouring to produce these components."
