Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) and Rolls-Royce Group plc announced today that they have completed the formation of a joint venture company to develop and supply engine controls for Rolls-Royce aero engines. The transaction closed on December 31, 2008.

Goodrich will retain the aftermarket products and services business associated with the joint venture's products.

In combining the skill, knowledge and expertise of both companies, we have created a single world-class team to provide exceptional technology and value for engine control systems."

As part of the transaction, Goodrich received $100 million in cash, which was used to make a voluntary incremental contribution to its pension plan.
