GE Aviation and Woodward Combine Fuel Systems Expertise for New Joint Venture
May 20 15
GE Aviation and Woodward, Inc. announced a strategic 50/50 joint venture for fuel systems for GE's large commercial aircraft engine lines. The new joint venture will design, develop, source, supply and service the fuel system, including components from the fuel inlet up to the fuel nozzle, for the GE90, GEnx, GE9X and all future large commercial engines developed by GE Aviation. Woodward will be the preferred supplier to the joint venture. Production rates for jet engines and components from GE Aviation have increased significantly during the last five years, with large commercial engine production more than doubling to close to 500 engines in 2015. With a backlog of more than 1,600 high-thrust engines like the GE90, GEnx and GE9X, the high production rates will continue well into the future. Under terms of the joint venture agreement, Woodward will receive $250 million in cash and the parties will participate jointly in the operating results of the respective programs. Completion of the transaction is subject only to customary regulatory approvals, and it is expected to close near the end of calendar 2015. This joint venture with Woodward and the related program award is in line with GE's strategy to ensure a stable supply chain to manage production volume growth.
