Posted 18 July 2018 · Add Comment

Aerospace engineering firm JJ Churchill today announced at the Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) that it has signed a further contract exceeding £70 million with Rolls-Royce Civil Aerospace.

This agreement is for the supply to Rolls Royce of turbine blades on a 10-year programme and in continuation of their existing relationship. Andrew Churchill (above), Executive Chairman of JJ Churchill, said: “To continue our activity with Rolls Royce, a giant in the global aerospace industry, is a fantastic endorsement of the high quality precision engineering work we deliver, day in day out.”

“The whole JJ Churchill team is looking forward to further building our relationship with this strategic organisation, continuing to supply precision machined blades.”

Over the past year JJ Churchill has made significant operational improvements and continues to invest heavily in its equipment and people. An example of this is their reducing fixture tooling costs by 5%, with an additional 50% reduction in the number of machining operations per part number, largely due to the introduction of Blue Photon technology.

Alongside this, JJ Churchill has also reduced the time to prepare fixtures by 70% within our coordinate-measuring machine (CMM) quality inspection process,
reducing the associated costs by 50% via 3D printing.

Now celebrating its 80th year and based in Market Bosworth, Leicestershire (UK), JJ Churchill employs 150 people and manufactures high precision gas turbine
components for the aerospace industry, as well as high horsepower diesel engine components and assemblies.

JJ Churchill is in Hall 1 at the Farnborough International Airshow.
