CFM names LEAP tooling suppliers

After performing an extensive evaluation process, CFM International is granting licenses to three world-class tooling suppliers to support the advanced new LEAP engine. Customers will be able to purchase all LEAP line maintenance and overhaul shop tooling from AGSE, Dedienne Aerospace, and Rhinestahl. The arrangement allows LEAP operators to compare offers from all three fully-licensed suppliers and select the one best suited to their individual price, lead-time, sales, and support criteria. "Each of these suppliers has an exceptional track record and is highly regarded in the industry," said Jean-Paul Ebanga, president and CEO of CFM International. "We believe that they each offer the level of quality and customer support that our customers have come to expect from us and will do a great job representing the CFM brand." Under the terms of the license, all suppliers provide identical coverage but the agreement is flexible enough to allow customer to split their orders between the three companies. AGSE, Dedienne Aerospace, and Rhinestahl will all provide customer support, training, repair, warranty, and documentation, and each will begin producing annual catalogs starting in 2016. The LEAP engine has experienced the fastest order ramp-up in commercial aviation history, garnering nearly 8,900 orders and commitments to date. Coupling state-of-the-art materials technology with advanced aerodynamic design techniques, the LEAP engine will provide a 15 percent improvement in fuel efficiency compared to today's best engines, as well as dramatically lower noise and emissions. All while maintaining CFM's legendary reliability and industry-leading low cost of ownership.
