Allegheny Technologies Inc., Pittsburgh, announces that it has extended its Long-Term Purchase Agreement (LTPA) with Rolls-Royce to supply rotating-disc-quality nickel-base and other specialty alloys for its Trent engine family. The ten-year LTPA extends through 2029.


“This agreement covers the production of a wide range of critical products used to make Rolls-Royce’s next-generation jet engines as well as spare parts for in-service engines,” says John Sims, Executive Vice President, High Performance Materials and Components Segment. “It supports ATI’s market-leading alloy development and broad production capabilities, including our iso-thermal forging operations.”


ATI also announces that it anticipates maintaining its current production and shipping schedules for all materials and components supplied to the Boeing 737 MAX and CFM LEAP 1-B programs during the recently announced temporary aircraft production slowdown.


“We are in daily contact with our key customers and we will continue to reliably meet our supply commitments that support their production schedules for the 737 MAX, LEAP 1-B and other major aerospace programs,” says Robert S. Wetherbee, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to prioritize operational and delivery reliability to allow our partners to focus on mitigating the impact of this production adjustment without concern. We have full confidence in Boeing and its global engine supply chain to continue building on momentum gained over the last year to meet the historic ramp up for this important aircraft.”
