Bodycote to provide manufacturing services to Safran Group

February 20, 2018

Bodycote, Macclesfield, UK, has entered into a long-term agreement with France’s Safran Group to provide manufacturing services including thermal spray coatings, electron beam welding, Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP), heat treatment and others to Safran companies and their key strategic first-tier suppliers.

Bodycote’s processes and technologies are used to prolong the working life of critical components and provide in-service protection from factors such as abrasion, temperature and wear. The company stated that the agreement would be supported by its global network of facilities, and will initially operate from strategically located facilities in France and Belgium.

According to the partners, the agreement aims to ensure that the manufacturing requirements of Safran will be met by a quality-focused supplier, to support the growth in Safran’s civil aerospace programs.

These programmes include, but are not limited to, the CFM LEAP for Safran Aircraft Engines, helicopter engine programmes for Safran Helicopter Engines and landing gear systems for Safran Landing Systems. The availability of Bodycote’s international network of thermal processing and other specialist services is expected to offer security and mitigate risk in the supply chain.
