Magellan Aerospace is providing precision machined parts for the A350 XWB (shown), including large complex machined aluminum-lithium components for the center wing box and complex machined aluminum detail components and assemblies for the structure of the pylon body.

Airbus and Magellan Aerospace (U.K.) Ltd. signed an agreement securing a further major work package on Airbus' new A350 XWB, which is expected to generate revenues in excess of $60 million over the next 10 years. The package consists of a number of complex machined aluminum detail components and assemblies that form the structure of the pylon body. Initial production will use existing capacity at Magellan's facilities in the U.K. at Bournemouth and Wrexham, with investment in new equipment to be phased in as the production rate increases from 2012.
