Airbus selects NORDAM to develop, supply A320neo P&W engine build-up system

TULSA, Okla. (Oct 5, 2017) – NORDAM CEO Meredith Siegfried Madden today announced an  agreement with Airbus to supply the engine build-up system for A320neos equipped with the Pratt & Whitney PW1100G engine. It is potentially NORDAM’s largest contract to date and could eclipse US$ 1 billion in value over its duration.

NORDAM will use its proven engineering and supply chain teams to provide Airbus with engine build-up system design and related component procurement. Although the Tulsa-based aerospace firm’s Nacelle & Thrust Reverser Systems Division has delivered integrated power-plant design for various business-jet customers, this is its first engine build-up system for a commercial aircraft.

“Not only is this a very large program on one of the world’s bestselling aircraft, but one that is highly strategic for NORDAM,” Madden said. “This win aligns perfectly with our strategic goals of growing our commercial manufacturing business and diversifying NORDAM.”

The engine build-up system integrates the engine to the aircraft by a series of electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, fire-detection and bleed-air systems. NORDAM will design, integrate and deliver the specified combination of wires, ducts, brackets, anti-ice valve, tubing and more for delivery to Airbus final-assembly lines in Toulouse, France; Hamburg, Germany; Tianjin, China; and Mobile, Alabama.

Headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma, NORDAM has multiple operations and customer support teams strategically located across the globe. NORDAM is one of the world’s largest independently owned aerospace companies, employing 2,500 stakeholders worldwide. The firm designs, certifies and manufactures integrated propulsion systems, nacelles and thrust reversers for business jets; builds composite aircraft structures, interior shells, custom cabinetry and radomes; and manufactures aircraft transparencies, such as cabin windows, wing-tip lens assemblies and flight deck windows. NORDAM also is a major third-party provider of maintenance, repair and overhaul services to the military, commercial airline and air freight markets. Learn more about NORDAM at
