RTI International Metals, Inc. selected to supply titanium structural parts for Airbus A350-1000

RTI International Metals, Inc. announced today that it has been selected to provide finished titanium structural parts by Airbus for its new A350-1000 aircraft program.

The award from Airbus – which represents its first procurement of RTI parts manufactured entirely by RTI's vertically integrated supply chain – calls for RTI to supply two final-machined structural titanium fuselage parts for the Airbus A350-1000 aircraft model.

Under the award, work to be performed by RTI includes providing titanium mill products, as well as extruding, forming, final machining and managing external suppliers. A portion of the extrusion, forming and machining will be performed by business units acquired by RTI over the last three years, as part of the implementation and build-out of RTIs vertically integrated supply chain. These facilities include RTI Advanced Forming, Ltd. and RTI Extrusions Europe, Ltd., both located in The United Kingdom.

“This award is representative of the vertically-integrated, value-added business opportunities available to RTI as a direct result of our commitment to the execution of our strategy to extend RTI's reach downstream, where we believe a majority of the incremental commercial aerospace industry growth opportunities lie,” said Dawne S. Hickton, Vice Chair, President and CEO of RTI. “In addition, our selection for this work further confirms the credibility and breadth of capability of RTI's vertically integrated supply chain, as well as our ability to build the strategic partnerships that are critical to successfully competing in today's commercial aerospace industry,” noted Ms. Hickton.
