  • 14-Sep-2009 04:54 EDT

Pittsburgh, PA-based Allegheny Technologies Inc. (ATI) signed a 10-year sourcing agreement with Rolls-Royce plc for the supply of nickel-based superalloy disc-quality products for commercial jet engine applications. Under the terms of the agreement, the ATI Allvac business unit will provide nickel-based superalloys to Rolls-Royce’s Tier 1 customers. Potential revenue is estimated to be between $750 million and $1 billion. Construction of ATI’s new titanium and superalloy forging facility in Bakers, NC, is expected to be completed later this year. This facility is expected to enable ATI to achieve ever higher standards to meet the demanding fuel-efficiency requirements of the jet engine market.
