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.

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."
