TORONTO, April 24, 2018 /CNW/ - Magellan Aerospace ("Magellan") announced today the signing of a 5-year agreement with an undisclosed commercial aeroengine customer to manufacture complex magnesium and aluminium castings and finished, machined engine shafts for gas turbine engines. The castings will be produced by Magellan's facilities in Haley, Ontario and Glendale, Arizona, and Magellan's facility in Haverhill, Massachusetts will manufacture the engine shafts. The new agreement is expected to generate approximately CDN $53 million in revenue for Magellan through 2023.
This new long-term agreement is with an established Magellan customer and provides the framework for a new level of strategic alignment; in addition to legacy casting programs for current engine platforms, the agreement also encompasses the production of shafts at Magellan Aerospace, Haverhill, Inc. to support additional commercial engine programs.
