Magellan Aerospace supplying aluminum, titanium structural components

  • 07-Jan-2011 04:23 EST

GKN Aerospace and Magellan Aerospace (U.K.) Ltd. signed an agreement securing a work package containing structural components for the Airbus A320 and A330 aircraft. The package contains a number of major aluminum and titanium structural components and is expected to generate revenues in excess of £21 million over the next five years. Deliveries are due to commence this month. This work package will be divided among three of Magellan U.K.'s manufacturing facilities, at Bournemouth, Chalfont St Peter, and Wrexham, utilizing existing core manufacturing capabilities. To support this program, Magellan will make further investments in high-speed five-axis machining technology.
