Rolls-Royce Holdings, a British multinational aerospace company, is currently making a bid to displace General Electric (GE) and Pratt & Whitney as the engine supplier for the new Airbus A380 aircraft for Emirates, a Dubai-based airline. Securing Emirates as a customer for Rolls-Royce’s Trent 900 A380 engine would be a huge success for the company, as the Gulf airline is one of the largest buyers of the A380 passenger plane in the world. Airbus, which has not booked any new buyers for the A380 aircraft since 2012, has been relying on Emirates airlines for approximately half the total aircraft orders. With this in mind, overtaking major suppliers GE and Pratt & Whitney as the engine supplier would catapult Rolls-Royce to the top of the aerospace engine industry. According to Rolls-Royce CEO, the company considers itself very well-positioned in the competition for Emirates’ business.

The Rolls-Royce Trent 900, although smaller than the engines of its direct competitors, has acquired a broad and notable range of customers, which include airlines such as British Airways, Deutsche Lufhansa AG, and Qantas Airways. Rolls-Royce, despite some recent job cuts, is still the second-largest aircraft and engine manufacturer in the industry. Their engines currently power the Boeing 787 and Airbus A350 planes and they are looking for expansion. Rolls-Royce is a major manufacturer and designer of civil and military aero engines, marine propulsion systems, and power generation equipment. The company is ranked 16th on the list of largest defense contractors based on defense revenues. Rolls-Royce reports annual revenue in excess of 15.5 billion pounds, with 1.83 billion pounds in operating income. The company employs approximately 55,200 people.

The Pilatus PC-12 turboprop has been highly successful since its initial certification back in 1994. The aircraft designed and manufactured by Pilatus Aircraft, boasts extreme flexibility, utility, and versatility. The cabin can be filled with passengers or cargo at high fuel-efficiency. With the rising cost of fuel, the benefit of having a single power plant instead of two makes this aircraft very desirable. Pilatus has had over 200 orders for the latest model of this aircraft. The PC-12 really has no real direct competition. Its closest competitor is the Beech King Air B200, which has two PT-6 engines instead of one. With that being said, the PC-12 is really in a niche all on its own. It is very unique in having a fast, pressurized short/rough field, single-engine turboprop.

The major upgrades that took place in the newest models were the flat-panel avionics, a much-needed modification for its primary use as an executive transport. In addition, there are close to a dozen other substantial upgrades that have been incorporated into the new models, which are aimed at keeping the aircraft up to pace with technological advancements in the aerospace industry and also to maintain the profitability and success of the aircraft. Pilatus Aircraft is a Swiss-based aircraft manufacturer that employs over 1,400 people.

Pilatus is a modest mid-cap size company that was founded in 1939 with a primary focus in fixed-wing aircraft, a focus it still maintains today. During wartime periods, the company has been known to design and manufacture significant amounts of military aircraft for both the Swiss Air Force along with the USAF, although their core competency is undoubtedly in business and civil aircraft. ASAP Semiconductor, through our proprietary website ASAP NSN Parts, specializes in the distribution of aerospace products around the world for both commercial, civil, and military applications.

Textron, an industrial conglomerate that includes big-name aerospace companies such as Bell Helicopter and Cessna Aircraft, has also recently agreed to acquire Beechcraft as of December 26, 2013, in a deal valued at $1.4 billion. This sale, which was concluded in the beginning of 2014, also includes the discontinued Hawker jet product line. Textron has quieted critics that proclaimed the company the already too far in debt to acquire the Beechcraft business, which had over $3 billion in debt alone. This would bring Textron’s debt load past $4.4 billion, in addition to the $1.1 billion in loans that would be required to finance the sale.Although this does seem like bad news for shareholders, the acquisition is already looking like it will pay dividends in the long run. Beechcraft was just awarded a $127 million contract to the New Zealand Ministry of Defence in which it will supply 11 T-6C turboprop trainer aircraft as well as ground simulators, with delivery scheduled for 2016.

The new planes will not only replace the leased Beechcraft King Air B200s, they also win out over the domestically-made CT-4E trainer jets that are currently used by the New Zealand Air Force. This signifies a big step for Beechcraft as it has secured its position in the New Zealand market and is on track to increase revenues, meaning a big win for its parent company Textron as well. Although, $127 million only represents 1% of Textron’s annual revenue, which may not sound like much, everything counts. This is due to the fact that the US is making drastic cuts in defense spending and defense contractors at home are already feeling the pinch. Every contract won abroad would greatly help offset the effect of budget cuts at home. With Beechcraft in prime market position for the next few years and with several more in the works, Textron is aiming for a nice return on its investment. Textron, founded in 1923, is a publicly-traded S&P 500 Component company that generates over $3.5 billion in annual revenue and $242 million in annual net income. It currently employs approximately 33,000 people globally. Divisions of subsidiaries of Textron include the following: Bell Helicopter, Cessna, E-Z-Go, Grenlee, Jacobsen, Kautex Textron, Textron Airland, Textron Aviation, and Textron Systems.

ASAP Semiconductor, through ourproprietary website ASAP NSN Parts, offers a large inventory of  as well as procurement capabilities for all Textron products, including their subsidiaries. We work closely with these companies to ensure receive Tier 1 pricing and can pass on the savings to our clients. Visit our website at and contact us today at .

Bristol Industries – Delivering Nuts and Screws for Multifarious Industries

That same year, Bristol began manufacturing self-locking nuts for Pratt and Whitney, General Electric, Allison Engines and Rolls Royce PLC.

With Bristol having established relationships with the manufacturers mentioned, they were able to establish a relationship with McDonnell Douglas and manufacture airframe nuts and gang channel products for them in 1978. Bristol’s products were used on the F15 and F18 fighter programs. The F18 is a twin-engine supersonic, all-weather carrier- capable multirole combat jet. Its first flight was in November 1978. Bristol Industries soon after began manufacturing airframe nuts for the C-17, DC-10, KC-10, MD-11, MD-80 series and the MD-95 program. Bristol went from only manufacturing screws for attack aircrafts to commercial aircrafts.

A Global Leader in Precision Mechanical Products

Bowmar, serving the aerospace and defense industries, is a preferred choice in electromechanical and electronic systems/subsystems, high-reliability interface products and precision gear assemblies.

Founder of Bowmar is Ed White, an educated electrical engineer from Harvard University who started Bowmar at the age of 23 in 1951 in his Fort Wayne, Indiana garage. Six months later, after investing $3,500 of his own money and borrowing $6,500 the business was moved to an aircraft hangar. In 1971 Bowmar's biggest defining moment came when they produced the world’s first hand-held calculator, the “Bowmar Brain” led in a new frontier of technological advances. After many changes over the six decades, including a period of time the company was known as White Electric Designs Corporation, Bowmar filed for bankruptcy in 1976.
