LEAP engine sales surge for AEC
Tuesday, 10 February 2015

Albany International reports that 2014 sales achieved by AEC, its composites business, surged to $30 million in the fourth quarter and $90 million for the full year, as the first wave of parts manufactured by its LEAP engine plant in Commercy, France, were released to aviation and defence company Safran.

AEC?s Texas operation continued to perform well, most notably in its work with Rolls-Royce in the development of the LiftFan aircraft propulsion system for joint-strike fighter (JSF)

Preparations for the LEAP ramp-up accelerated at both AEC plants and development of the GE9x fan case also advanced on schedule.
