CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Farnborough Airshow -- Goodrich Corporation's (NYSE: GR) Aircraft Wheels and Brakes has signed a 10 year contract extension with easyJet for the provisioning and MRO support of wheels and carbon brakes for their A319/A320 fleet. easyJet operates the world's largest fleet of A319/A320 aircraft with over 200 aircraft in service and 15 aircraft on order.

Goodrich's A320 carbon brakes use proprietary DURACARB® carbon heat sink material. The DURACARB carbon provides exceptional brake performance and a 35 percent brake life advantage over competitive equipment. The DURACARB material results in a brake that achieves 2,000 cycles between shop visits, reducing both line maintenance and overhaul costs for operators.

According to Brian Brandewie, president of Goodrich's Aircraft Wheels and Brakes, "The decision by easyJet to extend the provisioning and support agreement for an additional 10 years demonstrates easyJet's continued confidence in our equipment performance, reliability and the level of support provided by our Hatfield, UK wheel and brake service center."

Rob Mayo, head of Technical Contracts and Logistics commented, "The proven reliability of the Goodrich products allows us to maintain our highly efficient business model.  The seamless MRO support provided by Goodrich's UK service center allows us to focus on other aspects of our operation."  

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.
