Connecticut-based EDAC Technologies is to continue providing components used in P&W's geared turbofans and its F135 powerplant, under the terms of a new deal confirmed at the Paris air show.

The agreement has a value of more than $1 billion and will run for about 15 years, says EDAC vice-president Benjamin Adams.

EDAC provides P&W with a variety of parts, including integrated bladed rotors, spinners, cases and sink rings, says Adams.

Those components are used in the hot and cold sections of P&W's line of geared turbofans and in the F135 engine that powers the Lockheed Martin F-35 fighter.
