Arconic wins multimillion dollar titanium supply contract with aerospace manufacturer Ducommun

Under a new multimillion dollar contract, Arconic Titanium and Engineered Products will supply titanium sheet and plate to aerospace and defense manufacturer Ducommun, which will use the metal to support commercial aircraft and military programs, such as the BLACK HAWK helicopter shown above.

October 10, 2017 - Arconic has signed a multi-year titanium sheet and plate contract with Ducommun, an aerospace and defense manufacturer. Under the agreement, Arconic’s Titanium and Engineered Products business unit will supply titanium to Ducommun, which uses its proprietary hot forming and super-plastic forming processes to produce aircraft structures for military and commercial aircraft platforms. The deal, announced at the 33rd Annual TITANIUM USA conference in Miami, significantly increases the amount of titanium mill products Arconic supplies to Ducommun.

“Demand for strong, aerospace-grade titanium is growing as aircraft manufacturers seek to deliver the next generation of more fuel efficient and cost-effective aerospace structures,” said Jeremy Halford, President, Arconic Titanium and Engineered Products. “We’re continuing to win share and capture that growth through our commitment to quality and on-time delivery.”

“Ducommun needs suppliers who will partner with us to ensure the success of our customers, the global leaders in the defense and aerospace industries. Ducommun chose to expand its partnership with Arconic Titanium and Engineered Products based on Arconic’s proven performance as a supplier of exceptional quality, on-time delivery and lead-time support,” said Michelle Stein, Vice President Supply Chain Management, Ducommun.

Arconic Titanium and Engineered Products has been a supplier to Ducommun for 25 years. Arconic will produce the titanium sheet and plate at its facility in Niles, Ohio and distribute the products from its facility in Norwalk, California.
