Allegheny Technologies Incorporated announced that it has reached agreement on multiple new long-term contracts with GE Aviation to supply isothermal and hot die forgings used in the manufacture of commercial jet engines. These agreements begin in January 2021 and are multi-year agreements. ATI anticipates revenues totalling approximately USD 2.5 billion over the span of these agreements, averaging over USD 300 million per year. ATI’s President and CEO Mr Robert S Wetherbee said “We are pleased to extend and expand our six decade partnership with GE Aviation. These long-term agreements demonstrate the trust that GE Aviation places in ATI to deliver the highest quality materials and components to their production lines on-time. ATI’s deep materials science expertise and unique process capabilities enable us to partner with our customers to develop and produce the materials and components that enable today’s hotter-burning, more fuel-efficient jet engines.”

A world leader in isothermal forging technologies, ATI operates some of world’s largest isothermal presses in Cudahy in Wisconsin which produce technologically advanced forgings for hot-section jet engine components. Patented SuperCooler technology enables ATI to produce highly sophisticated components that have differing mechanical properties in different parts of the same piece for greater resistance to fatigue and temperature effects. Isothermal presses produce titanium and nickel base alloy forgings up to 45” in diameter and weigh up to 2,000lbs
