Mettis Aerospace has signed a long-term contract with Rolls-Royce to supply precision forged aerofoil components for a range of programmes, including the Trent 700/800, BRR710 and V2500 aero engines.

The newly signed contract with Rolls-Royce covers the supply of a range of aerofoil components such as vanes and blades for production engines in addition to aftermarket support.

The work will be carried out by Mettis at its integrated Redditch plant, which employs over 500 people, and produces precision components in aluminium, titanium and steel alloys for aero engine, airframe and equipment applications.

Archie MacPherson, managing director of Mettis Aerospace, says: "The aerofoils opportunity with Rolls-Royce has developed over the last five years following Rolls-Royce's strategic decision to invest in a multi-million pound blade facility at Inchinnan in Scotland."
