We’re an iconic, trusted brand that has provided the differentiated technologies needed to power the world’s most iconic aircraft for more than 80 years.
With deep customer relationships and a strategic global footprint, we are a trusted partner that delivers mission critical components that operate under the most demanding of conditions. Not only do we deliver 90 percent of structural and rotating aero-engine parts, but we’re also a part of virtually every engine and airframe platform. All of this means … if it flies, we’re on it!
Cleaner, More Fuel-Efficient Jet Engines
We are a world-class producer of aerospace engine components that enable the next generation of quieter, cleaner and more fuel-efficient aerospace engines. We are a recognized global leader that produces airfoils, rings, disks and forgings for virtually every engine platform.
We excel in vacuum-melted superalloys, machining, performance coatings and hot isostatic pressing for mission critical aerospace and defense applications. With nearly 1,150 granted and pending patents, our differentiated technologies push thermal boundaries allowing aero engines to operate at temperatures exceeding the melting point of the base metals.
- Global leader in jet engine components and seamless rolled rings
- 27 manufacturing plants and 1 dedicated R&D facility
Securing Aircraft from Nose to Tail
Our industry-leading fastening systems keep the world’s most iconic aircraft secure and in flight. Born from many well-known and long-standing brands, we design, develop and manufacture precision aircraft fasteners and installation tools that deliver mission-critical performance. Our fasteners are used nose to tail on fixed and rotary wing commercial and military aircraft, as well as jet engines and spacecraft.
Innovation is built into every fastening system we offer and we continue to invest in new technologies with two world-class research and development centers. We’ve even pioneered the solutions that make lightweight composite aircraft possible, enabling air travel to be more sustainable.
- Global leader in fasteners
- 20 manufacturing plants and 2 dedicated R&D facilities
Strong, Lightweight Multi-Material Solutions
Our customers rely on our proprietary alloys, multi-material expertise, and multi-process capabilities to deliver aircraft structures that perform in the harshest of applications. We collaborate with military and business partners to create high-performance engineered products that are stranger, lighter, and more cost-effective.
Combining metallurgical expertise in titanium and aluminum with vertically integrated manufacturing capabilities – including casting, forging, extruding, hot forming and machining – we provide the support structures allowing defense and commercial aircraft to take flight. This includes the monolithic forging needed to produce the F-35 Join Strike Fighter’s bulkheads.
