RTI International Metals, Inc. (NYSE: RTI), has entered into a 13-year
contract with Pratt & Whitney, a Division of United Technologies Corporation

market for titanium – a market currently estimated to be approximately 30
million pounds annually. In addition, the agreement validates our decision to

successes in this important growing aerospace market,” concluded Ms. Hickton.
