Minden, Neb. – Royal Engineered Composites has been awarded a volume purchase agreement from a key customer to supply engine nacelle components for a major transport aircraft program through 2014. The company estimates the value of the contract to be approximately $20 million over the next three years.
"We are extremely pleased to continue to support our customers in our capacity as a composite manufacturer with our focus on performance and added benefits to their programs," said Jarrod Ridge, business development manager.
Royal Engineered Composites offers complete design, manufacturing and prototyping services, as well as moldmaking and technical support for aerospace and defense companies. The company is an outsource manufacturer of composite nacelle components, secondary aircraft structures, space and satellite applications, radomes, and ECS ducting.
Until 2010, Royal was known by its original name of Royal Plastic. The change to Royal Engineered Composites reinforces the company as an industry leader in the production of composite parts and more accurately represents the company's technical capabilities, state-of-the-art facilities, equipment, and expertise.
Royal employs over 120 people in its Central Nebraska location with over 12 in its Product Development Group, consisting of engineers, CAD techs, and product development technicians. The company reportedly has the only high temperature laser sintering (HTLS) system in the US.
