Rolls-Royce Signs Goodrich To Support Total Care Program For British Airways 787s

CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) has signed an agreement with Rolls-Royce to provide nacelle maintenance services for British Airways under the engine maker's Total Care support program. The contract is scheduled to start upon delivery of British Airways' first Boeing 787 Dreamliner® aircraft in 2013. The agreement, which is the first for a Boeing 787 under Goodrich Aerostructures' Prime Solutions® suite of aftermarket services, will enable Rolls-Royce to provide British Airways with a fully integrated propulsion system support program.

Goodrich and Rolls-Royce have been working on the 787 propulsion system since before program launch in 2004. "The Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine and the Goodrich nacelle system are highly integrated.  It makes sense to combine the two systems into an all-encompassing service offering to optimize the support programs of both organizations," said Goodrich Aerostructures president Marc Duvall.

The nacelle support program will be managed in conjunction with Rolls-Royce, and will use Goodrich's MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) facility in Prestwick, Scotland. It will also take advantage of Goodrich's global nacelle MRO presence to offer support in all regions where the 787 Dreamliner will fly.

"As the original equipment manufacturer for the 787 nacelle, Goodrich is uniquely positioned to provide this type of comprehensive maintenance program this early in the airplane's lifecycle," said Paul Farsetta, vice president and general manager Aftermarket Services for Goodrich Aerostructures.  "This agreement also paves the way for Rolls-Royce to provide these same nacelle services to other customers."

Goodrich Corporation, a Fortune 500 company, is a global supplier of systems and services to aerospace, defense and homeland security markets. With one of the most strategically diversified portfolios of products in the industry, Goodrich serves a global customer base with significant worldwide manufacturing and service facilities.
