Alcoa to supply aluminium to E190-E2 programme

Alcoa will supply aluminium sheet and plate for the Embraer 190-E2 regional jet family under a multi-year deal worth $470 million.

The agreement makes Alcoa the exclusive supplier for proprietary, lightweight alloys used in the wing and fuselage of the re-engined family of 75- to 130-seat jets, Alcoa says.

The deal also includes the supply of metal to make wing ribs and fuselage frames for both the E2 aircraft family and the KC-390 military airlifted still in development, Alcoa says.

A corporate restructuring later this year means the metal will be supplied under a new spin-off company calls Arconic.
