$13B and counting

Arconic soars with a string of contracts that draw on our growing aerospace portfolio

Arconic is a proud leader in the high-growth aerospace market. Since 2015, we’ve signed more than $13 billion in new contracts with aerospace customers such as Boeing, Airbus, Embraer, GE and Lockheed Martin—for aircraft structures and aero engine components that fly nose to tail on our customer’s most advanced aircraft.

10-billion-new-contracts

We’re meeting robust market demand with our unparalleled capabilities in multi-materials, manufacturing processes and application engineering—and through smart technology and expansion investments that create a strong base for growth.

Here’s a look at how we’re growing:

  • Airbus:In 2016, we entered into three agreements with Airbus to supply 3D-printed metal parts for its commercial aircraft. The first covers titanium fuselage and engine pylon components; the second, 3D-printed ducting components made of high-temperature nickel superalloys for the A320 family of aircraft. Under the third agreement, we will supply 3D-printed titanium airframe brackets, also for the A320 platform.

    In November 2016, we secured a $1 billion contract that puts Arconic sheet and plate on every Airbus platform. The multi-year contract includes significant share gain on the A320 Family – the world’s best-selling single aisle aircraft family—and covers every Airbus platform flying today.  This agreement is the first to include material from our new state-of-the-art Very Thick Plate Stretcher in Davenport, Iowa (USA).

    In October 2015, we signed a significant fastener contract with Airbus. Under the $1 billion agreement, Arconic is supplying high-tech titanium, steel and nickel-based superalloy fastening systems for Airbus’ new, high-growth platforms, including the A350 XWB and A320neo, and existing aircraft, such as the A330.

  • Boeing: Arconic announced a long-term supply agreement with Boeing for multi-material aerospace parts in 2016. Under this agreement, we are supplying components for the 787 Dreamliner and will supply components for the 777X and the 737 MAX. The agreement draws on capabilities gained through the Firth Rixson acquisition and our new aluminum-lithium facility in Lafayette, Indiana (USA).

    In 2015, we announced two multi-year supply contracts with Boeing valued at $2.5 billion, including our largest fastener deal ever—an agreement to supply multi-material fastening systems for every Boeing platform. Arconic also is supplying ready-to-install titanium seat track assemblies for the entire 787 Dreamliner family.
