Matthew Heath, JJ Churchill’s sales manager signed the contract with Lee Scott of Starrag at the Farnborough Airshow. Following this week’s announcement of a £70 million long-term contract with Rolls-Royce, this purchase enhances the company’s ability to deliver turbine and compressor blades for civil engines in the UK and globally.
JJ Churchill and Starrag have worked in close partnership over the last two years and this announcement signifies the further development of JJ Churchill’s technical capability as they continue to grow.
“Our close work with Starrag during this strategic phase of capability development has allowed us to accurately support the complex technical requirements from our customers,” stated Heath. “With the ongoing growth of JJ Churchill, this additional machining centre will directly increase our capacity and widen our capability further.”
This LX051 5‐axis machining centre has been designed specifically for optimised manufacture of turbine blades. It will increase capacity directly supporting the company’s continued high growth trajectory within the aerospace sector.
