Bodycote Inks 15-Year Deal with Rolls-Royce
Bodycote signed a 15-year contract with Rolls-Royce’s Civil Aerospace business. Bodycote will provide thermal-processing services including specialized vacuum heat treatment and hot isostatic pressing (HIP) to support Rolls-Royce’s turbine blade casting facilities in Derby and Rotherham, U.K. The contract will be worth over $213 million in incremental revenues over the life of the agreement, and sales will ramp up over the next five years.
The agreement ensures the provision of specialist thermal-processing capacity to support the growth of Rolls-Royce’s large civil engine programs, including the Trent XWB, Trent 1000, Trent 7000, Trent 700 and Trent 900.
