Umeco signs Rolls-Royce supply-chain contract

Umeco, a provider of supply-chain services and advanced composite materials, has agreed to provide supply-chain services to power-systems provider Rolls-Royce’s US operations.

The contract, which is operationally effective from 1 January 2011, is expected to generate annual revenues in excess of $20m (£13m) and has an initial term extending until 31 December 2017.

In addition, it has been agreed with Rolls-Royce that Umeco’s existing major supply-chain contract in the UK will be extended by two years and will therefore now run to 31 December 2017.

The US contract will now form the basis for all new contracts that Pattonair may secure for service provision to Rolls-Royce.
