-Rolls-Royce opens US customer delivery centre.

AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2012 M2 COMMUNICATIONS

Aircraft engine maker Rolls-Royce said it has opened its first Customer Delivery Center for defense engines in the United States, initially focusing on deliveries for the Lockheed Martin C-130J military transport aircraft.

Through more than $1 million investment in production advancements including automated inspection, dry-ice blast cleaning and electronic tool control, the CDC will enhance deliveries of AE 2100 engines, as Lockheed Martin continues to grow its C-130J business in the US and globally. The aircraft is powered by four Rolls-Royce AE 2100 engines.

The CDC is located in Rolls-Royce's primary manufacturing facility in Indianapolis, where the AE 2100 engines are assembled. The AE 2100 is part of the Rolls-Royce AE engine family, which also includes AE 1107C for the V-22 Osprey, and the AE 3007H for the Global Hawk and US Navy BAMS. All AE engines share a common core and over 80 percent commonality.
