Pattonair, an international provider of supply chain services to the aerospace and defense industry, announced a significant expansion to its operations in support of Rolls-Royce. A new seven-year contract extends the relationship to North America and covers Pattonair's delivery of parts and services to North American operations for original equipment manufacturer as well as maintenance, repair and overhaul activities.
Pattonair already provides Rolls-Royce with supply chain management services, delivering logistical, direct-line feed and kitting services to Rolls-Royce locations in the U.K. and Germany.
The new contract takes effect on January 1, 2011. It is expected to generate annual revenue in excess of $20m and has an initial term extending until December 31, 2017. The comprehensive scope of work covers fixed and rotary wing aircraft engines, as well as naval power-generation sets.
Planning is already under way and the contract will be fulfilled from a new Pattonair facility in Indianapolis, Indiana, with management oversight from Fort Worth, Texas.
In addition, it has been agreed with Rolls-Royce that Pattonair's existing major supply chain contract in the U.K. will be extended by two years, to December 31, 2017.
