Rolls-Royce and Hispano-Suiza name JV

Rolls-Royce and Hispano-Suiza (a Safran company) have named their joint venture (JV) Aero Gearbox International and have confirmed plans for a new production facility in Poland.

The French-headquartered JV, first announced last October, will design, develop, produce and support accessory drive trains for all of Rolls-Royce’s future civil aircraft engines.

Aero Gearbox International will operate for a period of 25 years from this year, and will also have production facilities in the UK and Germany.

The construction of the new Polish production plant in the Podkarpackie Province region will begin at the end of 2015.
