During the 2022 Rolls-Royce Global Aerospace Supplier Conference held on May 17 in St. George Park, in Burton-Upon-Trent (UK), Liebherr-Aerospace was presented with the “Pioneering the Power that Matters Award 2022”. The engine manufacturer recognized the outstanding cooperation with Liebherr as well as the commitment, dedication and customer orientation of the aircraft equipment manufacturer.

Liebherr-Aerospace has developed a solid long-standing partnership with Rolls-Royce: The two companies have established in 2015 a 50:50 joint venture to develop manufacturing capability and capacity for the power gearbox for Rolls-Royce’s new UltraFan® engine. Located in Friedrichshafen (Germany), the joint venture Aerospace Transmission Technologies GmbH (ATT) provides production engineering for the power gear drive train components.

Furthermore, Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse supplies the temperature control valve for the UltraFan, the high-pressure non-return valve for the Trent 7000 engine, the pneumatic component package for the business jet engine Pearl 700.

In addition, Liebherr Aerospace Brasil Indústria e Comércio de Equipamentos Aeronáuticos Eireli, based in Guaratinguetà (Brazil) has entered last year into an agreement with Rolls-Royce covering the supply of highly complex aluminum components and parts to the engine manufacturer (make-to-print). The components will be used in turbines and engines for various aircraft of different manufacturers.
