Magellan Signs Long Term Purchase Agreement with Pratt & Whitney
Toronto, Ontario – 13 August 2018 — Magellan Aerospace (“Magellan”) announced today the signing of a six year agreement with Pratt & Whitney to manufacture aluminum castings for their Next Generation Product Family (“NGPF”) of engines, powering 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, USA. The agreement is expected to generate approximately CDN $81 million in revenue for Magellan through 2023.
Mr. Haydn Martin, Magellan’s Vice President, Business Development, Marketing and Contracts said, “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. Magellan will utilize the latest in advanced sand casting technologies, specifically 3D sand printing and automated pouring to produce these components.” Magellan is a world leader in the development and industrialization of advanced technologies in the aerospace sand casting industry.
“Pratt & Whitney looks forward to continued growth with Magellan Aerospace in signing this agreement,” said Brandon Barrett, strategic sourcing manager at Pratt & Whitney. “Magellan is investing in the right technologies at both of its facilities to provide the complex castings for Pratt & Whitney’s NGPF engines.”
