Longda’s Shares Gain After Chinese Alloy Firm Inks Deal to Supply French Jet Engine Maker

(Yicai Global) Dec. 13 -- Shares of Jiangsu Longda Superalloy rose after a unit of the Chinese alloy producer signed a 10-year supply deal with a French airplane engine manufacturer.

Longda’s stock price [SHA: 688231] closed up 2 percent at CNY37.45 (USD5.37) today, after rising by as much as 3.2 percent in the morning.

Safran Aircraft Engines will buy high-temperature alloys used in making key aviation and aerospace parts from Jiangsu Longda Superalloy Material, according to an agreement they signed on Dec. 9, its Wuxi-based parent firm said yesterday, without disclosing any other details.

Longda’s annual production capacity of high-temperature alloys, the cornerstone of advanced plane engine manufacture, will increase to 8,000 tons from 6,000 tons by the end of the year after new capacity comes on stream, the firm told visiting institutional investors last month. The products have already been used in aircraft engines, gas turbines, and other equipment, it said.

Safran produces airplane engines, with propulsion systems designed and developed by its units used on the European Space Agency’s Ariane rockets and liquid rocket boosters, Longda noted.

Rolls-Royce eyes more Chinese parts​

British industrial conglomerate Rolls-Royce Plc said China will become a priority in its future development strategy.

Beginning in 2023, it will increase purchases from Chinese suppliers of aircraft engine components by $100 million annually, as they have competed and succeeded among global suppliers in terms of providing reasonable prices and timely delivery of products.

Last year, the company reduced its engine production volume by 50 percent, and it had to ask all of its suppliers to follow suit. Meanwhile, it is consolidating its supply chain and awarded new contracts to Chinese suppliers in 2020.

"Chinese suppliers have competed successfully for a large proportion of work. This means that from 2023 onwards, we will be sourcing up to $100 million of new business from China each year. There remains significant further potential for our supply chain to grow in China," said Julian MacCormac, country director of Rolls-Royce in China.

"Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been no disruption of work among Rolls-Royce' Chinese suppliers. It has strengthened our confidence to purchase more from China. We have cultivated an extensive network of suppliers across China that manufactures sophisticated aero engine components and parts," MacCormac said.

Globally, the company is consolidating its supply chain and working with fewer suppliers. It plans to reduce total spending as it seeks to cope with the downturn of the global air travel market.

Rolls-Royce said it has tided over the most difficult time, and it is hopeful of seeing a positive performance next year.

The third flight prototype of AG600M has successfully conducted its maiden flight.


The bulkier front fuselage of AG600 v2.0 looks much better than that of v1.0.

It would be cool if South Korea developed a large modern flying boat too. Then the Asian "big 3" would all have one: China - AG600; Japan - ShinMaywa US-2; and South Korea. @Deino could write a book about it!
