Pratt & Whitney awards JSF F135 ring contract to Beacon

After experiencing performance challenges with two previous large multinational suppliers Pratt & Whitney approached Beacon for assistance in producing two admittedly complex Synchronizing Ring Assemblies. Beacon embraced the challenge by offering immediate engineering support and manufacturing expertise to the current supplier, in order to solve show-stopping produceability issues. As a result, Beacon quickly produced key detail components and assisted the supplier in producing compliant assemblies in support of the JSF LRIP program. Pratt & Whitney recognized Beacon's contribution to the recovery effort by awarding Beacon a low rate production contract for the entire Synchronizing Ring Assembly in order to get qualified and establish a long term contract. This represents a significant long term opportunity for Beacon as the JSF has a projected build of 2,400 aircraft.
